We had a great kick off to the new term!
At IES Södertälje our house system plays a huge role in creating our culture. Just like in Harry Potter our students are arranged into 4 houses (Aqua, Ignis, Ventus and Terra) and will stay in those houses from grade 4 to 9.
We began with the sorting of our new year 4 students into houses and then enjoyed a day of bonding and collecting points.
Our annual football competition was the first of the year and was played in year groups. The rest of the field was filled with fairground games, beat the goalie, hoop throwing, cup pong, shooting a ball into a bucket and many more.
All these games allowed our students the chance to get points to put their house into the lead.
The students did a great job trying all the activities, they particularly enjoyed ‘sponge the teacher’, though why we gave them points for that I’m not quite sure!!
Check out this video of Mr Cullen bravely sitting in the firing line!
Thanks to all the staff for making this day possible and we really hope you had fun. Watch this space for the results.
