Dear Parents and students,
We are excited to greet our students tomorrow for our end of term celebrations for years 4-8. As always in our traditional manner, we will be celebrating our success, listening to our students perform, awarding students for Academic success, effort and thanking our staff and students for making IESTäby such a wonderful school to belong to. This year we have planned our day to comply with safety recommendations and we will not be meeting in assemblies in the Student lounge in Senior school. Instead our students will be based in their mentor classroom and will be streamed live or through recordings of the performances, awards and speeches.
Our year 6 Leavers Lunch will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, a special day to thank mentors, enjoy a fond farewell to Junior school and a chance to look forward to next year and the move up to Senior school in year 7.
On Wednesday we will be celebrating the year 9 Leavers Lunch and Graduation, with pomp and ceremony in our IESTäby tradition with Caps and Gowns, diplomas, awards, musical performances and speeches. Even though parents are so sadly unable to attend this year, they will be able to see a recording of the event streamed the next day.
May I take this opportunity to thank all parents for your patience, support and trust during these difficult times. Everyone has been doing their best...Thank you and please congratulate your children who have shown grit, hard work and amazing adaptability to new ways of learning and have really done their best this school year.
Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer holiday.
Welcome back on August 17th to a new and exciting school year.
Ms. Gina Ericsson
