The IEGS basketball team played their first match of the 2021-2022 season against Stockholm International School known as SIS. The match was conducted on the 25th of November on Thursday around 16.00 pm. Since IEGS did not have a referee, SIS brought their own referee which allowed this game to be more controlled. The game consisted of 4 quarters of 10 minutes. IEGS had a team that consisted of 14 players while SIS had a team of 15 players. IEGS controlled the game at the start but SIS never stopped their fight to get the win. Through the first three quarters, IEGS was leading the game by an
During week 37 all IES principals took part in the annual principals conference, including our principal Dr. Heimeier. The theme for the conference was well being and it was a two day conference where one was to share best practices in different areas. This theme is now brought back to the individual schools where staff focus around it in different ways.
Also during this time schools were honoured for accomplishments over the year and this year we are proud to have brought home three awards! They were in different categories and we now proudly display them in our staff room. They were
What an energetic start to the year we have had!
As an IEGS staff team, it was important for us to come together to reconnect, reset and plan for the year ahead. I am excited about our academic and pastoral focused curriculums that are designed in a way to provide a safe and calm, stimulating learning environment for all our students. Giving them the opportunity to develop skills and experiences, both in classes and in house/club activities, that encourage them to be future proof, caring global citizens.
I hope the 2021/22 school year brings you many opportunities for change and
The hustle and bustle of the first couple weeks has settled and our induction days past us. We are now officially deep into lessons, students have gotten to know their schedules and found their way around. It really is great to see so many faces walking the halls, they are excited and happy too finally be in school learning again.
Even more exciting is our Cross Country IHC happening next week, we like to start the year off with a bang. Giving students an event to get to know each other better, bond and even get in some good exercise! There's nothing better than spending a day outdoors
It's been a busy two weeks here at Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet, Södermalm. We've been working hard to get the school ready for our students and are very excited to be able to have them back in full time. Teachers and other staff members have been working, collaborating, planning and planning some more. It's also been a bit quiet over the past weeks in the building, but we know come Monday it will be full of life and energy.
We hope you are ready for another year and excited to start a new adventure! Here are some words on wisdom as you start your journey of new school year.. don
My name is Lucas Dow and I am a third-year natural science student. A while back, I entered a competition called Utställning Unga Forskare. Third-year students from around Sweden compete with their GYAR for prize money, scholarships and to be a part of the Young National Research Team (Unga Forskningslandslaget). I entered the competition, unknowing of what it really was. To my surprise, I advanced to the semi-finals in Södertälje. At the semi-final, students displayed their research on posters and with real-life demonstrations. A jury was responsible for picking the most impressive projects
On Saturday, Internationella Engelska Skolan celebrated its 25th anniversary of providing quality education to students in Sweden. I was honoured to be amongst the 400 plus guests gathered in the Blue and Gold Halls of City Hall in Stockholm to celebrate IES and the success of our founder Ms Barbara Bergström. What an amazing person and entrepreneur. It was a magical evening of festivities. A superb dinner fit for noble laureates. Outstanding entertainment from IES alumni, staff, student choirs and performers. Not to mention our founding mother herself who bedazzled us with a performance in a

This year the Modern Languages Department here at IEGS has had the privilege of participating in two language competitions; the annual Språkolympiaden (the Olympic Games of Languages) as well as the Chinese Bridge, a Chinese language proficiency competition. Both of these competitions look, not only at the students competency in each language, but also at the cultural norms and practices of these countries.
After competing in the first round of the Språkolympiaden in January, our students qualified for the Regional Final in Spanish, French and German. In March the students in Spanish, Parnian
