This Saturday, we had the pleasure to welcome our new students that will join us at IES Falun in August 2018.
I had the privilege to welcome 94 excited students and their guardians outside on our Playground in the most beautiful winter weather. 14 teachers then collected the students in groups, and guided them in through our school and in to class rooms, where they had their first experience on how life as a student at IES Falun is. The students had three mini-lessons, in Math, Swedish and English, as well as a social activity.
This Work Shop Day is an opportunity for both our new students to get to know our school and each other, and our new IESF guardians, to meet each other, and the management team.
While their children were in “lessons”, the guardians met in the lunch hall, where I explained about IES Falun, what we believe in as a school organisation, our expectations and how we need to work together to balance and ensure our students well-being in school and outside of school. The school's Academic Assistant Principal, Ms Doty spoke about the academics at the school, how we work to support that all students fulfill their potential. Our Junior Club leader, Ms Campbell, also explained about Junior Club.
Thank you so much to everyone who came!
We ask guardians of students who could not attend the Workshop Day on Saturday to contact Ms Ailsa Panton as soon as possible to secure placement for your child in August. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
