Monday, April 23rd was International Book Day, and we celebrated at IES Södertälje by having all students and teachers bring our current best read to school, and at exactly 10 o’clock, doing a “stop, drop, and read!” Many staff and students chose to dress up as their favorite book characters to add to the festive mood.
As we are heading towards the end of our first school year, our high academic standards need to be tempered with plenty of fun in order to keep our students positive and excited about school. We have a couple more House competitions coming up: a fashion design challenge and math competition; and a whole sports day of orienteering this Wednesday. In addition, an IES-wide football tournament is in the works soon.
And at the end of the term, three whole House days of activities for team building and fun will serve as a wonderful memory to last our students the summer until we see them again.
