Christmas Fair & Lucia Performance

On the 10th of December (Tuesday) there will be a Christmas Fair at IES Skellefteå between 16.30 and 18.30, organized by the PTA group. During this event there will a Lucia performance by our year 2-4 students, although students from other year groups will be involved in the organization too. 

There will be food and warm drinks available for purchase, as well as a chance to participate in a lottery.

In addition to the festivities the PTA will also be collecting toy donations to give to children in need, which will be later delivered at Scandic and Pingstkyrkan.

We are very glad to extend an invitation to all the students and their families, so we hope you can stop by to enjoy this delightful fair!

Information Evening at IES Skellefteå

Invitation to our Information Evening on October 16th

In August 2019, IES Skellefteå opened with 250 students. We have had a very good start and are now starting to plan for the intake of new students for the academic year of 2020. 

We are therefore inviting parents, students and the wider community to an information evening about our school at Brännavägen 57-59, on October 16th from 18:00-19:30.

The audience will hear from the principal Frederik Granström about the school and what life is like for students on a day to day basis. You will also meet some of the teachers at IES Skellefteå. 

Today there are 26.000 students in our 37 schools. Every school follows our conviction that each individual student can achieve their full potential through:

Command of the English language – the key to the world. Up to half of our teaching is in English, performed by certified native English-speaking teachers.

A safe and orderly environment, where teachers can teach and students learn.

High academic expectations.

The school is open to everyone. Places will be available on a first-come, first-served basis according to how long students have been in the queue, which you find on the start page of the website.

This week, in the midst of all wonderful things that are happening at the school our students had a special visit from a group of players in our hometown hockey team Skellefteå AIK (SAIK). Our students were very excited to meet with the players!

Thank you our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) for making this happen for our students. 

We are so ready for the new season to start!
