Skol-DM Football Boys
We had a successful day of football yesterday. Some of the team have written a short report:

Nu har första rundan av Skol DM varit och första matchen var mot Mosaikskolan då  vann vi med 19-1 och vi hade bra spel också. Andra matchen mot Söderbaumska vann vi med 8-1 och vi tycker att vi hade bra lag o bättre spel än dom andra lagen. Nu är vår skola i finalen i Skol DM 2019 så snart ska vi spela igen. Dom som var med och representerade våran skola 2019 var Noel, Baran, Walat, William, Svante, Alexander, Mahmoud, Rodi, Marwan, Axel G och Axel R. Nu längtar vi efter att vinna finalen i Skol DM 2019.

We would like to wish the team good luck for their next games! Play well and be good sporting ambassadors for our school.

Home Economics Apple Art

With classes started again, the students worked with Ms. Jungåker in Home Economics to create these wonderful pieces of food art!

They learned that even with cooking, you can be creative!

We look forward to seeing more impressive "Food Art" from the students in Home Economics this year! 

Skol-DM: Orienteering

Skol-DM: Orienteering

Yesterday, IES Falun sent a team to the Skol-DM in Orientering. We travelled to Leksand, where a fast and furious course set out in the woodlands alongside the lake awaited us. In the heat of the day, 78 students were racing for their school. In the year 5 line-up were 2 girls from IES Falun; Ida and Klara. Klara was first off into the forest and although she was nervous before her start, she knew that once she got the map everything would be fine. Ida followed shortly afterwards and looked confident and in control of her navigating when she set off. Orienteering is a sport that makes for nervous supporters as the runners disappear into the forest and spectators are looking at their watches hoping to get a glimpse of their runners appearing out of the woods! It wasn’t long to wait for Klara to come storming out of the trees and towards the last control, with Ida in pursuit. Both girls had had a great run in the forest, clearing the course in under 21 minutes.

Thank you to Excel Education for organising a wonderful, sunny afternoon of fun racing.

Approaching the end of the Academic Year 2018-19, and welcoming new students during IES Falun PTA’s barbeque evening

After a long and intensive National Tests period, students in year 6 completed their national tests last week, and this week, year 9 students finished their last national tests.

To support our students during these 12 weeks, Mr Andersson has collected their stress in his beard, and today, after the students in year 9 finished their last National test for the year, he had shaved it off to celebrate with them and gave a speech about being respectful to each other, and true to oneself in future choices.

This upcoming week, PTA is also hosting our annual barbeque evening, to welcome our new students for next year. News from this event will be coming shortly. We wish all new families warmly welcome to IES Falun!
