Our Year 5 students entered a competition with Chalmers to create plans, drawings and models of a future playground. Six groups had their prototype submitted the models were displayed in selected culture houses around Gothenburg.
The PTA charity drive was a great success. We collected a total of 120 gifts that we donated to Stadsmission Christmas charity. Stadsmission also received many Swish contributions from families at our school. Thank you to the ESG community for great generosity!
Three of our Year 7 students Aleah, Laura and Siri took part in a troupe gymnastics competition in Varberg on a recent weekend and their team won silver. Congratulations!

Well done to Leyan Zeidan, our full pot student this year. Full pot means she got an A grade in all 17 subjects, a remarkable achievement.
Despite the pandemic we were able to take part in the Language Olympics. All the students that take a language took part and the school got an average score. We came in the top six for the region in all 5 languages; Swedish, English, French, German and Spanish. There was a separate section for those who have English as a home language and we had four places in the top ten for the region. We then moved on to the regional finals where Azad (Year 9) and Sebastian (Year 8) were finalists. Our Year 8 student Imogen came second in the English mother tongue Olympics for the whole of Sweden. This was especially impressive as she was competing against older students.
Our PTA organised a successful socially distanced forest Easter Egg Hunt for the junior classes.
Congratulations to Ingrid, Eshika, Nils and Ellen in Years 8 and 9 who took home a bronze medal in the finals of a maths competition in the Gothenburg region.
