Image: Principals Conference: The Heads of all IES schools meet in Kista
On Thursday September 10th and Friday September 11th IES Kista played host to the IES Principals and Academic Managers Conference.
The event takes place every year at IES, to allow for these key senior figures at each school to share ideas and best practice.
Our guests were all taken on tours of the school by our excellent Year 8 prefects and also enjoyed lunch with our students in the dining room. Staff from the company headquarters were also present over the two days, including CEO Mr. Ralph Riber and the company's founder, Ms. Barbara Bergström.
It is an honour for IES Kista to host the event within the first month of opening. This is a testament to the fantastic start we have achieved at the school with more than 550 students beginning across 18 classes in 5 year groups; the biggest IES opening in the company's history.
Staff from across all IES schools will meet next to take part Regional Conferences across the country. Staff at IES Kista will have a one day conference with other schools in the Stockholm area in on Friday 16th October. This day is an in-service day and no lessons will take place for students.
