On Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September, IES Kista was honoured to host Internationella Engelska Skolan’s annual Principals Quality Conference. The event focused upon the organisation’s ongoing commitment to maintaining and improving the already high standards it sets across all areas, creating an environment where teachers can teach and students can learn.
Principals and academic representatives from all thirty-three IES schools attended the conference, including IES Södermalm Gymnasiet and IES Breckland in the UK, in what proved to be an incredibly successful, productive and inspiring two-day event.
The school was honoured on Day One to receive a visit from the founder of Internationella Engelska Skolan Mrs Barbara Bergström and her husband Dr Hans Bergström, who were greeted on arrival by our grade 9 prefects. Following a tour of our newly-expanded school for all delegates, the conference was officially opened with addresses by Mrs Bergström and the CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan, Mr Ralph Riber.
It is an honour for IES Kista to host such a prestigious event, and a testament to the high levels of ambition and achievement demonstrated by everyone at the school. I am incredibly proud of the efforts made by our staff and, most of all, our students, who conducted themselves with the conscientiousness and maturity that we have come to expect.
