I cannot believe that end of Autumn term is already here and that Christmas and New Year's just around the corner. During the last couple of weeks, the students have had their last tests and handed in their last projects. The teachers have been busy marking to meet the deadline for end of term grades. We have had Master Chef competitions in Home and Consumer studies classes, Junior School Disco and much more.
Earlier this week we also celebrated Lucia in the morning. In the afternoon and evening we had the annual Christmas Market, a truly wonderful event where PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and students and staff come together to organise an evening with Lucia performance and Christmas spirit. As previous years, the students displayed their Art and Slöjd work in the school for their friends, parents and relatives to see.
Today, the 16th of December, the kitchen staff serve Christmas Lunch (Julbord) for everyone in the Dining Hall.
And... Student Choice days are on Monday and Tueday next week. There are so many fantastic choice acitivities to choose from this year, including Skapande skola projects at Tekniska Museum, Swimming, Ice Hockey, Martial Arts, Chess, Storytelling with pictures and much more. Students, I hope you will enjoy the choice days before Christmas and the two days in January. More Student Choice days will be planned for end of May.
To all students, parents and staff that make IES Hässelby the wonderful school it is: Thank you!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
