Welcome back!

Dear all, 


welcome back to a new term of school. Teachers had their first day back today, and has had a full day of basic fire safety training with a company, very informative and useful. We have also worked and planned in our different departments, and Special Education, Student Care, the school management and a few others met attended a lecture from a young person working for Hjärnkoll with mental ill health and how to recognise this and support our students. She will come back and meet all our staff in a few weeks. 


Just a reminder that the crossing over the street at the roundabout has moved a to just close to the school. The reason being that they have built an access road for trucks and lorrys just by the former crossing. It also means that we would like you to not stop directly by the school when you drop your children off as that blocks the entry way to the school and ICA. A speed bump will also be put in the drive way between ICA and the school, and a a painted crossing between the school and ICA. 


Kind regards, 

Annakarin Johansson 



Välkomna tillbaka till den nya terminen. Lärarna hade sin första arbetsdag idag efter lovet, och de har ägnat den åt en grundläggande brandsäkerhetskurs, vilket var väldigt informativt och nyttigt. Vi har också planerat terminen i våra olika ämnesarbetslag. Elevhälsan, speciallärarteamet, skolledningen och några fler har idag också haft en föreläsning och gruppsamtal med en person från Hjärnkoll om psykisk ohälsa hos unga och hur man känna igen det hos elever och stötta dem på bästa sätt. Hon kommer att komma tillbaka och prata med alla våra lärare. Hjärnkoll


Jag vill också passa på att påminna om att övergångsstället vid rondellen har flyttats till precis framför skolan. Detta är för att det kommer att finnas en byggväg till byggområdet i The Brick precis vid det gamla övergångsstället. Så snälla var vänliga och kör fram en bit innan ni släpper av era barn, så att ni inte blockerar övergångsstället eller vägen mellan skolan och ICA. En hastighetsbegränsande fartbula kommer också att läggas på vägen mellan skolan och ICA, samt ett nytt målat övergångsställe.

Vänliga hälsningar

Annakarin Johansson


From the Principal

Welcome to IES Liljeholmen!

Welcome to IES Liljeholmen!

IES Liljeholmen is a year 4-9 school situated around Telefonplan in Hägersten, not far from Stockholm City. We started this school in 2014 and has grown to our full potential this school year (2017/2018) with five parallell classes in each year group. We believe strongly in the IES Ethos, in a bilingual, safe and orderly school envrionment where students can learn and teachers can teach. 

Our teachers comes from all over the world, but they have in common that they teach in their first language. Our students have the privilage of being taught by a native speaker, in English, Swedish, Spanish, French and German for example. We also offer a wide range of home languages through Omniglot. 

I came to IES Liljeholmen in June 2016, after 12 years at IES Enskede. I started off as a teacher in Swedish, SO and Maths, I was a mentor for many years, and Head of Department and Head of Year. The last three years at IES Enskede I was the Academic Manager. I sometimes jokingly say that I am born and raised IES as this is were I have worked for almost 14 years now, almost a third of my life. 

IES Liljeholmen is my first school as a Principal, and my vision of this school is one of a well functioning school, where students can reach their goals, and learn for life. My goal is that all our students will be able to get in to Gymnasiet after year 9. That the grades they get is reflecting reality and are in following LGR 11, the Swedish curriculum. Which means that my vision also is of a school where all teachers are in line with LGR 11 when teaching, planning lessons and grading. I believe in grit, and an open mindset when it comes to learning. I believe in learning from mistakes, and not giving up even when it is hard. To be able to ask for help, and new ways, when the old ways don't lead forward anymore. As a wise person once said, “The greatest teacher, failure is.”

I wish you all a fantastic 2018! 


Best regards, 

Annakarin Johansson
