Principal's Letter - June 2021


Dear Parents and Guardians,


As I write this we have just celebrated our second graduating class of Grade 9 students here at IES Årsta. The number of our IES Årsta alumni is growing and something we are very proud of. The class of 2021 has shown grit and resilience throughout what has been a challenging year for all. I want to congratulate our Grade 9 students for their hard work and dedication upholding our IES values and setting a positive example for the rest of our student body. We wish the class of 2021 all the best in the future! 


This year has been a challenge for all of us due to the ongoing global pandemic which we are all affected by in various ways. Here at IES Årsta we have tried to maintain a stable and consistent education for our students throughout the year to ensure they do not miss out on crucial learning opportunities. We are proud of the high expectations the students have been held to and worked diligently towards. They should be proud of their learning progress and the academic results they have achieved this year. 


It has been tough for our students individually, our team here at school as I am sure it has been for you as parents, but I want to thank you for your continued support throughout this year as it continues to be crucial to work together for your children. As we look towards the future we hope to be able to welcome you back into the school building next year and strengthen our resolve to support your children and ensure we work to maintain the positive, calm and safe school culture, which has suffered throughout this pandemic.


I wish you a restful summer and look forward to seeing you in the Autumn.
