Inter-House Table Tennis Competition

Inter-House Table Tennis Competition

From beginners to budding professionals, we had a great turnout at our Inter-house table tennis competition.


The tournament was arranged by Ms Kerr the Head of house for Ventus.

Mr Wester said this about the event:

Wow!, what a wonderful event for all, a huge thanks to all the staff involved. I thought the students had a wonderful time, you could tell because of their energy and enthusiasm

With Mr Wester keeping score and Ms Kerr as head referee for Years 4 and 5 and Mr Douville and Mr Berny referring the Years 6, 7 and 8, the students had an awesome time. 

Medina Grade 4:

It was really fun, I tried my hardest and it was funny that Ms Kerr made us say sorry if we hit the net, I didn't know that was a rule. I didn't win my game but I really enjoyed taking part. 

Congratulations to our winners in each year group. In Year 4, Isaiah from Ventus, in Year 5, Adrian from Aqua, in year 6 Milad from Ignis, in Year 7 Yousef from Ignis and in Year 8 Ananda from Aqua.

Well done to all who took part and a big thanks to all the staff who helped run the event.

Class 6a took it upon themselves to organise a spooky spectacular celebration for grade 4 and 5 students.

An amazing time was had by all including some fantastic costumes and crazy dancing! 


With DJ (Mr) Brace at the helm, the students danced away the night and left with some wonderful memories and sore feet.

We're very proud of the efforts made by the students of 6a, and would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Brace for an amazing party, Ms Sylwia for volunteering to help out, Mrs Furie for all of her hard work and excellent dancing, our class parents who helped on the night, and the school Principal Mr Öhman for all his help and allowing it to happen.

To complete our emergency service visits, our Junior club at IES Södertälje had an exciting visit from the Ambulance service.

Linus and Ambulance staff take questions

Similar to our other visits, the ambulance service took questions from our students and gave them a tour around the ambulance.

Included in the visit were some awesome demonstrations of medical equipment and how they are used

Moa Grade 5 talks about the visit

It was so fun to see the Ambulance crew, they bandaged my friends head and also showed us what a "neck brace" was. They told us that they use this a lot when they go to car accidents. The best part for me was when we could actually walk through the ambulance and see all the equipment.

Ambulance crew "attend" to one of our Junior club students

Our Junior club students really enjoyed the visit and were even given a little momento of the visit in the form of a teddy bear who has now been named as "Junior" by the students.

We at IES Södertälje would like to thank Linus and the ambulance crew for coming and holding an amazing visit for the students.

UN Day at IES Södertälje

UN Day at IES Södertälje

UN day at IES Södertälje this week started with a lecture from the Swedish Defense Forces, speaking about how to maintain peace by armed warfare. This is related to a part of our students examination process in Social Studies. The hour long talk was held by Bengt Sandström (Former Colonel - Swedish Army). Later in the day, the lessons will contain UN related topics.

Further on, the school was decorated with the members of the United Nations flags. These decorations were created by our Junior Club.


The purpose of this day is related to our autum theme - "Democracy in our society and globally". 

Earlier on in the semester the student worked with human rights related topics. The project centred on their position as school students at IES Södertälje. 

Throughout the year the students have covered the topic areas that include: The Swedish goverment elections, the organizations of parliament, government and the European Union. Later this semester, they will work with different types of dictators, and of course UN related topics.

Another special visit to Junior Club and this time it was the turn of the Södertälje Police. 

Affe from Södertälje Police answers students questions. 

Axel from grade 5 

I thought the police were cool, because he told us about things that the police do. He showed us his equipment and what they carry in their cars. We asked questions and he told us really interesting things like how much the armour weighs and what he does with his equipment. He is really cool as he likes the best teams in football and hockey. 

After a few questions the students were led outside for a tour around Affe's police car. 

Rabia Grade 4 -

The police opened the back of the police car and showed us what was inside, they had lots of things including breath test kit and a box filed with really cool things. I learnt that if someone has a weapon in their hand that the police have to take it to make us safe but the most useful weapon that the police have is their voice. 

We would like to thank the Södertälje police for visiting us and for all the hard work that they do to keep us safe.
