Congratulations to Philip for winning this year's Umeå Chess Tournament. Philip along with two of his classmates, Sena and Glenn have qualified to attend the finals which will be held in Stockholm. While this is a non-school related function, a big thank you goes out to our students, their families and Mr Niklas Nabb along with the rest of the Math team of IES Umeå for all of their support. We were told that Internationella Engelska Skolan has the most representatives in the finals than any other school. Here are our guys that qualified to go to Stockholm:
IES Umeå welcomes this spring with our first bird house made by our very own student from 4B! It is now up on one of our trees ready for a family of birds to nest in. Thank you, Irene, for adding a touch of orange to our playground!
Hispanic culture, a cultural diversity celebration!
A brief introduction to the Hispanic culture with Ms. Parpala.
Spanish speaking countries, the language, idioms, legends, arts, music, cuisine, history, social & family values of the Hispanic people!
We’ve had a great time with our photo booth, we learned how to do “Piñatas” and dance “Salsa”. We also made the most delicious “Guacamole” while listening to Hispanic songs and music like the famous guitarist Paco de Lucía and Shakira. Watching the “Flamenco” dance was so fascinating and of course… We’ve had a blast breaking the “Piñatas”!
Please check out our website's photo gallery for more pictures from our event!
