Information meetings in November

Internationella Engelska Skolan Lund is moving to a state-of-the-art custom-built new school at Sankt Lars väg 90 in August 2014.

That also means that the schools will expand from three classes to twelve classes. Are you curious? Do you want to be a part of creating the finest school in Lund? Are you ready to challenge yourself?

If so, let me invite you to one of our information meetings in November. Come and find out what it is like to be a student at Internationella Engelska Skolan Lund. Meet the Principal, teachers, parents and students and ask all the questions you have on your mind.

November 9 at the Auditoret, Sparta konferenscenter, Tunavägen 39, Lund 12.00 -14.00

November 13th at Palaestra et Odeum, Universitetsplatsen, Lund university 18.00 – 19.00

The information meetings are not drop-in events. They will start at the announced time and continue until all questions are answered.

The first seven weeks

Autumn is here and the mornings are getting chilly but the school is getting warmer and warmer every day. After seven weeks we have got to learn each other and all students have got used to the rules and the way we work. We have had our first parent meeting on September 25th which was a very pleasant evening, thank you very much all for the encouraging words and the fine cooperation we already have got between the school and all parents. Next week we will have the first meeting with the PTA and we are looking forward to that. Student council has also been elected and has as its first important task set new rules for the schoolyard and the playing ground. An important lesson I democracy. Well done students.

What a Day

There are certain days when you really know why you are a teacher or a principal. At Internationella Engelska skolan it is almost every day but some days even more. Last Friday was one. We had a fantastic grand opening of the school, sun was shining, students all looked very smart in their school polo shirts and we were visited by our founder and chairman Mrs Barbara Bergström,  her husband Dr Hans Bergström  and our CEO Mr Ralph Riber. We could also welcome representatives from Lunds kommun, principals from the other schools in the park and of course many of our parents. The school was officially opened by Mrs Bergström and then all the students sang the schools song. We marched with Alte Kamereren  at the point to our future building where we planted the apple tree that is the symbol for all our schools and then had a wonderful afternoon mingling and having fun. Thank you all for a great day. May it be the symbol of many more to come!

First day of our school

Happy and a bit tired, I write this blog post at the end of the first day of IES Lund. At 09.00, our small schoolyard was full of young eager pupils and outside the fence stood some of their parents. After roll call we had a great introduction day. Everybody was exited and when the day was over we gave the parents a tour of the building. A special thanks to our colleagues in Gothenburg, Järfälla, Eskilstuna and Huddinge who sent such lovely flowers to us. Now we look forward to tomorrow…
