Happy Holidays everyone!

The autumn term is now drawing to a close. What a wonderful term we have had. Students in Year 4 have settled in at Junior School and must be delighted with their new English skills. All students will get their term Grades on Thursday 2O th December after our traditional assemblies in the student lounge at Senior school. You all should be proud of your hard work, grit  and achievements this term.

I would like to thank all the students who took part in our Lucia performances at Tibble Teater this year. What a wonderful celebration produced by our dedicated Music teachers and staff.

Now is a time to rest and reflect on one’s achievements and goals. The new spring term in January gives so many new opportunities to learn and be successful. Carpe Diem.

On behalf of the management and staff at IEST, I would like to wish all students and parents a relaxing and peaceful winter holiday break over Christmas.

I look forward to welcoming back all students on 9th January 2019.

Happy Holidays!

Best Regards / Med vänliga hälsningar

Last week of term 2017-18

Greetings to Parents and Students,

We have an exciting end of term week ahead of us. In typical IESTäby style, we will be celebrating success and academic achievement all week.

We start on Monday 11th June with our year 6 Leavers BBQ Lunch at Junior school.

After our Mentor days on Monday and Tuesday, we will be holding our traditional end of year assemblies on Wednesday 13th June in the morning for years 4-8 at Senior school. Parents are most welcome to collect their children after the assemblies outside junior or senior school.

The year 9 celebrations and activities continue all week, with their formal Leavers lunch on Wednesday 13th June, culminating on Thursday 14th morning in our traditional Graduation ceremony at Aula Medica at Karolinska University. We are delighted that the PTA has once again organised the year 9 Prom for all students on Thursday evening.

Our students, staff and parents have so much to enjoy and look forward to this week. Once again our school has excelled academically and a well deserved summer holiday starts soon.

I look forward to welcoming everyone to enjoy these special days at IEST.

Carpe Diem

Best Regards,

Ms, Gina Ericsson
