Thank you for a fantastic first day!

From the Principal

Dear students and parents,

I am extremely grateful for the fantastic welcome I was given during Wednesday last week. I could not have asked for a better start. I am now installed in the office and I spent most of Wednesday listening to students and staff and getting a feel for the school as well as addressing all staff in a meeting at the end of the day.

We have a big job ahead of us to get to where we want to be, a calm and welcoming school where teaching and learning is at the center of each day, but I am sure that we will get there. The three keywords that will permeate my leadership are as they were at IES Uppsala, dedication, communication and clarity.

To get where we want to go, we need to work hard, communicate well and be clear in our vision for IES Kista. I hope that my work together with our staff will earn your trust and faith in IES Kista as the best place in education for you.


Mr. Mikael Östling Huhta
