Anti-Bullying Week

Dear all,

Last week we had Anti-Bullying Week at IES Kista. On the Monday, me and Mr Adriasola, our core values facilitator and SO-teacher led lectures for all classes from 4-9 on the issue of bullying and how the school deals with it. Below you can see our target for all students and staff in regards to our work in this field.

Our goal is that you feel:

Happy coming to school.

Safe being in school.

Treated with dignity and respect by all people at the school.

That is why we actively work with and through our anti-bullying plan which stipulates how this should be achieved for all who study and work at IES Kista. 

Vårt mål är att du ska känna:

dig glad när du är på skolan.

dig trygg när du är på skolan.

att du bemöts med respekt och värdighet av alla när du är på skolan.

Vi jobbar därför aktivt med vår plan mot kränkande behandling som är en plan på hur vi ska uppnå detta för alla som studerar och jobbar på vår skola.

A safe and calm environment is a pre-requisite for  high quality learning and a must-have in any successful school!


Best Regards,

Mr M. Ö Huhta

Accessible Education Team Videos

Dear all,

Our Accessible Education Team here at IES Kista have been working hard over the summer and during the start of the term to make sure that our processes for support and assessment of student needs are done with quality and makes us catch, see and help students who need different approaches to be able to access the content taught in class. Below you can see some videos of who they are and what they do.

Dear Students and Parents,

The school year has now begun and as seen above we were ready to welcome our new and returning students to our school this Monday morning. The lines were long and full of excited students. Our first few days have been really good and we have enjoyed getting to know some of our new students as well as seeing how much our returning students have grown during the summer.

Highlights from Prom 2019

On Monday 3rd June, the grade 9s held their leaving ball at Restaurang Foodie in Akalla. The evening began with their students’ grand arrival, some being brought in some very impressive cars, from sports cars to stretched Limos. They were beautifully dressed, too, looking like a million dollars. Following an extremely tasty Middle Eastern buffet, the students filled the dance floor. There they stayed and danced the night away.

The staff who attended were extremely proud to see how wonderfully our students have grown in their time at IESK.

A big thank you to Ms Parada, Ms Yemane, Mr Locke and Ms LaRocca for their hard work during the evening, as well as to all the other staff who helped out.
