It is with a great honor and a belief in the future, we welcome all new and returning students, parents and staff to IES Falun for the school year of 2017/2018. This year IES Falun has grown to 17 classes with 410 students and 52 members of staff of various nationalities.
After one mentor/class-day, one Year Team-day and two regular school days, we are off to an exciting start. Last week we implemented a parent and guardian mingle evening, with a School Soft demonstration and an introduction of IES Falun's PTA (Parent Teacher Association). For our students best interest, we believe in a strong cooperation between school and parents.
The focus of this academic year is to be promotive and preventative. For physical well-being, students' schedules include health and movement lessons, and for a more psychosocial well-being the students' schedules include Lifeskills-lessons. Lifeskills connect the learning to reality with the intention to reinforce commitment, meaningfulness and, above all, the students' inner motivation. This will be further addressed during the parent and guardian meeting tonight.
Welcome to the academic year of 2017/2018 at Internationella Engelska Skolan Falun.
