Happy Advent

From the Principal

Dear all,

The Fall Term is soon coming to an end as we are gearing up for the cozy and so well deserved holiday break. Teachers and students are wrapping up their classroom projects, Luciatåg practice is underway, and our students are enjoying some tomtegröt and Julkalendern in the mornings before their lessons. What a wonderful time of the year!

We had our Open House a few weeks ago. There was a fantastic turnout and it was a rewarding evening for us, with many possible future families to join our school. We had over 200 visitors filling our Lunch Hall, who also took the opportunity to walk around the school to ask questions and learn more about our school environment, our subject rooms, the energy and passion shared by the great number of students who showed up to proudly guide our visitors around the school.

Our Student Council is busy finishing up their work on our school’s Abusive Treatment Plan, which is part of our Equal Treatment Plan. They have also been meeting with Fazer (our food deliverer) during our Food Council Meetings. 

The Oral National Tests have just happened for our Year 6 and 9 students. Meanwhile, students in Years 4, 5, 7, and 8 had Year Team days filled with fun activities together with their classmates (visits to 2047 Framtidsmuseét and Falun’s new Moco Loco indoor football field, among other places!). The students in Year 7 and 8 also had a day focused on learning about tolerance, with a presentation by Mary Jeseela and her team from https://www.likaolikametoden.se/, followed with two lessons and group work.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be enjoying the holiday spirit around school! We have our Luciatåg planned for next week (filled with staff and students!), our yearly Julbord is planned for December 13th, and there are rumours of a cozy dress-up day being planned for the end of term!

There are just two weeks left of the Fall 2019 Term, which means there are lots of activities planned and work to be completed, and together, “to-get-there”, we continue to work resolutely towards our vision that all our students are equipped with the knowledge, values and tools to feel so safe, secure and knowledgeable, to make wise, well-thought-out and choices in our democratic and equal society. We celebrate and challenge ourselves and each other! We do this together.
