In the skiing group, we had around 75 students who had never been on skis before!  Ms Merritt and the other teachers were extremely impressed by how quickly a lot of students picked up the sport and were flying down the red hill by the end of the day!  It was a fantastic opportunity for students to try something new.

The curling group travelled all the way to Danderyds Curling club where they learned how to curl.  Students from 8C said "It was fun sliding around and falling on the ice!"  Ms Nieuwenburg said that our students were excellent representatives of our school and that they took on the challenge of curling with lots of laughs and wipe outs!

The hiking group had beautiful weather as they travelled to Hellasgården.  They went for a 5km hike where they were able to get amazing views of the lake and Stockholm off in the distance.  After the hike, they got competitive and played some football! 

Overall, it was a great day with lots of sports and smiling students!

At school I wanted (Ms.Salci, So-teacher) to test students' ability to source critical thinking. Together with the students who were with me in Auschwitz, I conducted an experiment. It was a "miracle drink" that would boost concentration and improve test results. This attracted the attention of the Swedish Radio P1. We were invited to the radio show Nordegren & Epstein P1, Tuesday 14 March. The program (live broadcast) discuss our pupils from Year 9's Adam Alas and Cleo Trad experiment.

So the day had all the fourth graders had been looking forward to finally come!
All the students went with their teachers to the Globe Arena for taking part in one of the world's greatest chess competitions: Chess Four.

As the number of participants is so huge, you have to run the event over two days. On Monday, students competed in 2240 under the same roof together, and accumulated points to classes. The day after the race about the same number.

The top 10 Stockholm The classes will qualify through to the national final, but unfortunately reached our fours are not all the way. However, there were several of them who managed to win all their games and thus qualify for another contest called Four Chess Master.

All students who participated got a nice diploma and a gift from the Viking Line, which applies to the whole family.

Mr. Haddad who is a teacher at IES Skärholmen is also one of the contest organizers. He says that the competition ran very smoothly, despite the large number of participants and it showed that the students had great fun! The fact is that this is a memory of a lifetime.
