MasterChef Has Begun!

MasterChef season has begun at IES Hässelby. Students in years 6-9 are currently participating in MasterChef challenges during their HKK (Home Economics) lessons. Teachers at the school will visit each class to judge groups on taste, texture, presentation, creativity and overall appearance. Good luck to all students participating! 



From the Principal

Principal's Update

Dear IES Hässelby,  

We have had many new changes happen this term at IES Hässelby. Improvements were made to the layout of the school by moving the library to the 2nd floor and ordering new furniture for the B-building, Common Room and Library. We have also recieved a lot of positive feedback from parents and students regarding the recent changes to the school food. Everyone seems especially happy with the edition of sparkling water in the school's cafeteria. 

It's hard to believe that summer is just around the corner with only 27 days of school left. From end of term reports, Summer Sports Day, Mentor Day, and Grade 9 Prom, to Graduation, avslutning, the end of year teacher video, and Spring Fair, we have a lot of exciting things to look forward in the last few days of school.

We are now finishing our eighth year in operation. As IES Hässelby's new Principal, I look forward to recieving your feedback in the school's survey as we move forward in our journey for excellence at our school. 


School Dog

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Catarina and Molly, IES Hässelby's honorary school dog, who will be working at our school during Spring Term. 

Catarina has more than 10 years experience working in schools as a mother-tongue teacher, study-coach, SVA teacher, and she has a lot of experience working with children with special needs.

Molly and Catarina attended the School and Therapy dog course at Hundens Hus. They are trained in working with children and how working with dog assisted activities can help. 

Students working with the school dog will train and lead the dog to do tricks and circus acts, hide dog-treats, count and memorize, play fetch, learn to give commands in sequence, talk about how dogs communicate and how we should treat dogs, play different games, pet the dog and brush her coat to feel calm and relaxed, read for the school dog, do other school-work with the dog's help, take the dog for a walk outside. 



Sports Day!

Friday, 8 February was Sports Day at IES Hässelby. The whole school participated in a variety of activities such as skiing, bowling, swimming, badminton, martial arts, climbing and much more. Special thanks to our PE Department for organizing such a special day for our students and staff.
