Books are our friends!

Even when the world seems a little less fun we try to focus on the positivt things in life here at IES Hässelby. One of our favourite things each year is promoting literacy to all our students. The library together with the English department do this by engaging the students in different activites with focus on books and the joy of reading. And of course, the fan favourite Guess the reader. Which staff member is hiding behind their favourite book? Good luck to everyone competing this year!

Literacy Week

Literacy Week

The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you´ll go. - Dr Seuss

We always promote reading to our students, but this week we give it a little extra focus. 

Book exchange - All our students are encouraged​ to bring a book, new or old, to school. Then they get to pick a book someone else brought in at the big book exchange. A terrific way to give an old book new life, thinking about the environment and a chance to find a book you never would have bought yourself.

Book character day - Students and teachers​ get to dress up like their favorite character from a book for a day. Who wouldn´t want to be Harry Potter, Morrigan Crow or Spiderman for a day?
