Sportsday 16th of May

On May the 16th IES Liljeholmen had a fantastic sportsday, organized in the different houses. The weather was lovely and everybody participated to their best. Thank you all students and teachers that made this day such a lovely event! 


From the Principal

World book day!

This week we are celebrating World Book Day. Both in classrooms, during breaks and in the library, different events are going on. On Friday the 27th the year 6 will host different events reconizing this day. The English Department together with the teachers has had a little competition for the students where they get to guess who the reader behind the book is! It has been a very popular competition, and hopefully it has inspired some students to read new authors. Can you identify the reader behind the book? 


What happens at school during the Holidays?

This is a question I get a lot as a principal, what do you do when there are no students and teachers in the building?

Well, during the breaks we try to paint, and freshen up the school. During Sportlov we painted all the white in the corridors, and stair cases. Today I saw one of our student assistants painting the green corridor on level 5, so we all help out and it is quiet enjoyable. The nurses and counsellors are doing a lot of paper work, that they have to catch up on. But today, one of our nurses and our Student Care Manager, who both are certified HLR instructurs, were training staff from other IES Schools to become HLR instructors! 

We also plan for the future, work on schedules, and go through our quality work, interview for next year and catch up on research an studies. 

The last two breaks we have also had lovskola, for students in year 8 and 9 at risk of failing a core subject. During sportlov we were focusing on Maths, but this time it is also some Swedish and English.
