Due to the success of last years show, again it was time for our students to show off their talents to an excited crowd of staff, fellow students and parents!
Hosted by Antonio and Eva-maria and judged by our Head of Houses it was an evening full of great fun and entertainment.
Many different acts graced the stage including dance, song, animation and even a Rubix cube presentation!
Talent shows can be seen as a way to help boost the self-esteem, confidence and promote public speaking. Our students excelled in doing that again this year.
We even had a very special "Teacher talent" act planned by Miss Duffy. the act got one of the largest laughs of the night and thanks to Miss Sattberger we were lucky enough to capture it on film.
Our Head of house for Aqua, Mr Wester said this about the evening:
The show was a great success! I'm very proud of how our students performed and we all applaud their bravery to get up and perform in front of such a large crowd. It's always difficult and can be very scary to be in the eye of the public, but our students showed great grit and determination to perform.
So without further ado, here are the winners on the night!
In third place with a fantastic song melody was Lara from 4th grade.
In second place was 7th grade Naomi, who sung and played piano for the 2nd year in a row.
And finally our winner for the IES Södertälje talent show was 6th grade student Emilia with her amazing ballet performance.
We were lucky enough to capture Emilias performance when she practised in a PE lesson so you can see the dance in full below (Video uploaded with parents permission)
Huge thank you to all that performed and to all that came.
Mr Brace, stage manager for the show had this to say:

I would like to say some special thanks to Ant and Eva for doing such a great job at presenting, my back stage crew that was made up of our 8th graders who gave up their spare time and worked fantastically during the evening. Our very own HoH's for their judging skills. Ms Duffy for trying to teach teachers a talent, Ms Nilsson who ran the snack stands, Mr Winsnes for great work with managing the music and Miss Kerr for arranging the show.
