On Friday, November 15th, students in year 5 participated in a storytelling workshop. Dominic Kelley from Fabula Storytelling was invited to IESH to talk to students about the art of performing stories. In the morning, students listened to folktales from around the world before participating in fun storytelling games and activities in the afternoon. On behalf of the year 5 students, IESH would like to thank Dominic Kelley for coming to our school and teaching our students all about storytelling.
A new playground for the Junior School opened this past week with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by Principal Schafer and Ms. Gylling. The very welcome and well-appointed addition to the IESH campus was built by Elvardal and comprises an array of unique and attractively (especially to juniors, but also to this writer) modern equipment whereon our kids can swing, slide, jump, climb, and play during their free time. After the ribbon was cut the students flooded the new playground with gleeful shrieks of approval.
On the first day back students and parents are asked to meet in the gymnasium at the following times:
Grade 4: 08.30-14.00
Grade 5/6: 09.30-15.00
Grade 7/8/9: 10.30-15.30
Ms. Schäfer and Mr. Granström will welcome the students back to school; teachers will be introduced, mentor groups will be read, and students will go with their mentors to their classrooms.
