Lucia performance at IES Falun

Lucia this year at IES Falun was a big success. Elsa Åkerström was nominated as Lucia and she did a beautiful job. Hannes Furhoff was nominated Staffan and likewise did a great job. We had many students from grade 4 this year, some from grade 5 and just 1 each from grade 6 and 8. 

We had some beautiful Christmas lights put up in the hall to make a stage for the lucia train and Mr Smith played the piano brought down from the music room. 
 
This year we had to do 3 separate performances due to the size of the school. First for the grades 4, 5 and 6, then for grades 7 and 8. In the afternoon there was a special extra performance for the parents and families. 

All the students in the lucia train including the pepparkaksgubbar, tomtar, of tärnor looked wonderful and did a great job with their costumes. They sang beautifully, and the teachers were so proud!

 

Library poster competition

We would like the library to be an exciting and inviting place; a focal point for the school. 

With this idea in mind, I wanted the students to think about books and reading: what they felt was the magic / förtrollande element. Reading is not just educational, but also the possibility to escape into a totally different world; become someone else; follow someone else's story and so very much more. 

I asked the students to design a poster for the library which would reflect all this, and thought perhaps I would receive about 30 entries. The response was fantastic with almost 100 entries!! These were all displayed in the library and it was the students themselves who voted for the winning picture. A difficult task indeed! 

Thank you so much everyone for all your beautiful work and enthusiasm. And please, keep an eye out for the next library special event soon coming up!!

BBQ med föräldrar, elever och lärare

BBQ med föräldrar, elever och lärare

Under torsdagskvällen var vi stolta över att bjuda in alla våra vårdnadshavare och elever till en BBQ där alla fick träffa mig, som ny rektor personligen och alla mentorer. De fick även se vår nyutbyggda skolbyggnad and många var imponerade av de rymliga och färgrika korridorerna och klassrummen. Vi ser fram emot ett fantastiskt år, där vi speciellt välkomnar  ny personal och elever.
