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.

Ett nytt skolår har börjat!

Kära studenter och föräldrar,

Skolåret har nu börjat och som ni sett ovan var vi redo att välkomna våra nya och återkommande elever till vår skola denna måndagsmorgon. Köerna var långa och fulla av uppspelta elever. Våra första dagar har varit riktigt bra och vi har haft glädje att lära känna några av våra nya elever och se hur mycket våra återstående elever har vuxit under sommaren.

Vänligen kom ihåg föräldrarmötet den 3 september (år 4-6) och 4: e (7-9) klockan 17.45 till 19.00. På bilden ovan kan du se vår nya biträdande rektor för elevhälsoteamet, herr Mark Dunnell, som hjälper mig och Ms. Martin, biträdande rektor för akademiska, att skapa en enastående skola i Kista.

Er rektor,

One World Day

One World Day picked Morocco as its theme this term at IES Kista.

Students were welcomed in the morning by the vice principal Mr Mark Dunnell, the Moroccan Embassy with the chargé d'affaires Mr Mahfoud Bahbouhi & diplomat Dalal Ziadi (Image above). Students were offered 2 different types of delicious dates from Morocco which they had together with milk as part of the morning welcome.

Our principal Mr Mikael Östling-Huhta welcomed all students teachers and the Moroccan embassy in the aula and students received a presentation about Morocco.

Students had a delicious lunch with the same Moroccan theme, chicken marinated in Moroccan olive oil and preserved lemons with Moroccan green olives.

After lunch students got to taste different types of oils and olives from Morocco together with bread and of course amongst the oils was Moroccos very own unique and the worlds most expensive oil, Aragon Oil.

Then in the afternoon we finished it off with a Moroccan tea ceremony with mint and dates.

Year 4 open day

IES Kista hosted a Open Day for grade 4 students to start in the next academic year. The students were welcomed into the school by the Assistant Principals Mr. Dunnell and Ms. Martin. After a short greeting by the Principal Mr. Ösling Huhta in the school cafeteria, the students were led out by our capable teachers who showed them to the classrooms and lined them up outside their classes as we would during a normal school day.

The students were taken through all the regular routines which they can expect at any IES school. Then came the icebreakers which showed them how much fun can be had in a calm and structured environment.  

 

After the classes were taken on a tour of the building they had time to play on the year 4 playground which all the students enjoyed and managed to make new friends already.

 

We look forward to welcoming these new year 4 classes back in the next academic year!

Thank you to the teachers and staff who made the event such a success.
