Spring 2020 Here We Come!

Hello and welcome back to IES Hässelby Strand for our Spring term 2020! 

We hope that you are all well-rested and ready to jump back into what has already been a fantastic school year. Here are some things to look forward to at the start of this spring! 

First, we are so happy to welcome Ms. Rebecca Tideman to the Swedish department! Ms. Tideman, a Stockholm local and graduate of Uppsala University will teach in years 6 and 8 and be a mentor for 6B: a. She's coming back to teach from spending a year away traveling in Australia and she's really happy and excited to meet all the students and start working this week! 

Second, we are also super excited to announce that Ms. Rosenquist will be joining our team! She will work to support the administration team with subbing, and she will act as extra support for students in and outside the lessons. Ms. Rosenquist is a local who actually attended and graduated from IESH! We're feeling so grateful (and a little old) to have one of our students come back and work for us. Welcome back, Ms. R.!

Third, the new football pitch is finally finished and we will have a grand opening ceremony week 3. The new pitch is beautiful, with perfectly level, beautifully painted turf, stronger goals with new nets, and better and safer access with a new wider lockable gate. I am currently in the process of ordering some new jerseys and balls to be used with the new pitch. For now, students can continue to rent balls from Mr. Tell in the rec. room. Enjoy! 

Wow! So many exciting things! 

Please be on the lookout for more important academic information from your teachers on Schoolsoft! 

Welcome back, everyone!

Mr. Wallace

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!

Dear IES Hässelby,


A warm welcome to all new and returning students and families to IES Hässelby!


As we begin our second week of lessons, the school year is officially in full-swing. The leadership team has been dropping into lessons this past week, supporting teachers and students and making sure that we all start the year strong.


We have a lot of exciting new changes to look forward to this academic year. Firstly, we are pleased to welcome 12 new qualified teachers to our team. In the fall term, we will begin our all new teacher-led extra-curricular program, offering a variety of clubs for students after school. We will also open a new student cafe at the beginning of September. Students can also look forward to the school's Football Field and Basketball Court outside the A-building being renovated in October.


The teachers, staff and leadership team have also set goals for improvement during 2019/2020, based on feedback from our student and parent surveys from 2018/2019. We aim to improve on our school’s commitment to quality education, discipline and order and student happiness. Our actions for how we intend to reach these goals were shared with students during the first days of school and parents during our parent evening presentations.


We look forward to hearing from both parents and students throughout the year and reaching our goals for school improvement together.


Best Regards,
Ms. Naurin
