    We have been collecting old pairs of glasses since Christmas and now have around 300 pairs of glasses and sunglasses to send around the world where they are most needed. This is an initiative from year 4 and 5 students and we are cooperating with the charity Vision for All.

    Amazing standards!

    The year 9 of 2017 achieved the highest results in the Gothenburg region out of more than 250 schools and nationally we believe they were in the top 10 out of over 1400 schools. The class had 28 students who represented 20 different nationalities and is an incredible achievement by our diverse intake.

    Spanish coming alive

    We have been getting into our Spanish culture as well as our Spanish language. Year 9 have been learning Cuban salsa from two professional dancers. Meanwhile year 7 had a dia de los muertos feast honouring the Mexican tradition of the day of the dead. Finally year 8 have been in the kitchen following recipes in Spanish making churros and hot chocolate.

    Astrid Lindgren Day

    On Friday 24th November we had a lovely Astrid Lindgren Day throughout the school, the highlight of which was seeing how the year 8 and 9s planned and taught activities to the younger children. There was a quiz, artwork, drama, word searches, film clips, singing songs and dressing up and an assembly. August said he loved everything and Josh said the fruit salad game was good. Overall the younger children said ‘we loved that the year 8s and 9s worked with us.

    Skoljoggen was a great success with pupils from reception through to Year 9 taking part.
    It was a lovely sunny day, some Year 9 pupils provided a musical warm up for the younger children, which was much appreciated, and then they set off around Slingan at 09.30.
    Hemköp kindly sponsored us with fruit so all could enjoy a snack once they returned.

    In the afternoon, the senior classes ran two circuits. It was great to have an event that so much of the school could take part in.

    Many thanks to all who donated towards the charity Clowner utan Gränser. ESG raised 2762 kronor.

    Cleaning Up Our Environment!

    This week all junior classes have taken part in cleaning up litter both in the school playground and the area around the football pitch and even slingan.
    This was part of a Göteborgs stad initiative to create a ”Trygg och vacker stad”.

    It has been a great success and all classes enjoyed being out in the fresh air.

    The Daily Mile

    Year 3 have been busy recently with their Daily Mile, meaning that they start each day with a run. They have been treating this as a learning exercise for other subjects too and have been keeping a record of their results. Last week they were even featured on Lilla Aktuellt Skola. You can see them in action on SVT Play in last Friday’s programme. Our thanks to Mrs Lindqvist for organizing this and to the other teachers who have been running each morning.

    Competing in Maths, Science and English.

    This year we have enjoyed testing ourselves against other schools in some of the main subject areas. Felix followed Matilda from last year in going to the National finals in the Science Olympics. It is a great feeling that two years running we have young scientists in the national top 20.

    In English our team of Jonathan and Matilda qualified for the regional finals in English as a second language. In English as a native language we filled 7 out of 10 places for the national finals which Nikolai won!

    Finally Michele, Matilda and Felix made it to the regional finals of Maths Olympics.

    A big thank you to Mrs Eklund and Mrs Mattinen for organising these opportunities and to the parents for their support.

    Reading Challenge 2016.

    Years 2 to 7 have been taking part in our biennial Reading Challenge. Having stocked the library with new books the children set about reading the books, writing reviews and winning individual prizes while taking part. In total the students read over 1200 books with the winning year groups being Year 4 and Year 6.
    But we haven’t stopped there as the students have discovered new books, given us their requests and recommendations and we have bought more books.

    So the reading continues!

    A big thank you to Mrs Aranceta, Mrs Laine, PTA and all the parent volunteers for supporting this fantastic learning event. We look forward to 2018.
