Happy New Year

I always find it challenging to get back into work and study mode after the festive season. But meeting with our teachers and staff today, I feel energised and ready for the spring term ahead.  The new year brings a world of fresh possibilities and opportunities. 

So welcome 2019, and to all staff and students, a warm welcome return to studies at IEGS.

The IEGS Debate Society participated in the 2018 Stockholm Schools Debating Championships in Lund on November 17th, 18th, and 19th. After taking Best Novice Team two years in a row in 2016 and 2017, they set their sights on further improving their skills and performance. The school sent one very hardworking team of five students: Andreas Backman, captain, Daniela Tupan, co-captain, Akshat Deshpande, Dylan Bradford, and a brand new competitor this year, Didrik Bratt.
