Welcome back!

Dear Students and guardians,

I would like to welcome everyone to IES Krokslätt and the academic year of 2017-2018! We are now in to our second week of school and we are all so inspiried to see our students back again. This is my third start up as principal and I can honestly say that IES Krokslätt is now one of Gothenburg´s best schools. This year we will work hard on becoming even better.

New for this year is the implentation of Singapore Math within all year levels. We hope that Singapore Math will help our students reach even better results in Mathematics. For more information please go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdbKPnxR8C0

We are also introducing Character counts as a means to build good character amongst our students. Character counts fits well with the IES Ethos.

I wish you all a great year!

YL 6 students went to the finals at Chalmers

YL 6 students went to the finals at Chalmers

Dear Students and Guardians,

During the fall term, half of the 6th grade students took part in the Chalmers teknik competition as part of their teknik class. The competition required students to design and build futuristic model homes. When building the models, they had to take the following criteria into account: Water supply, waste management, transportation, communication, design, geographical location and material selection. In January, 8 students from 6B were placed as finalists. They were in the top 6 groups out of over 4000 students competing throughout the city of Gothenburg. On the 24th of February, all of 6B had the opportunity to compete in the final competition round. Although they did not come in first place, we could not be more proud of them! 6B ended up winning 5000 kronor and a trophy as a class prize. Congratulations to the class of 6B, we are so glad you represented IES Krokslätt at the Chalmers teknik competition!

Dear Students and guardians,

We have now experienced four fantastic weeks of school. Every day teachers and staff are impressed by our students’ academic/, and social achievements. It was very rewarding talking to many of you guardians at the parental meeting we held this month. It is imperative for our students’ wellbeing in school that home and school have a well-functioning relationship. Thank you for coming!

This year our dear year 6 students will take part in Tekniska samfundets Tekniktävling. Please click on the link belov:

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of one of our important changes concerning the new academic year. The school now has a manned reception. You find the entrance on the side of the school building facing in the direction of Korsvägen.

All guardians and visitors must sign up on arrival at the reception. All students that arrive late for school must also sign in at the reception.

This new policy is a step to strengthen the security of all students attending our school.

During this autumn we invite guardians to parental meetings where guardians have the opportunity to meet mentors and member from the school management. We will also during this autumn offer guardians other important events such as; SchoolSoft training and Development talks. You will find further events concerning the calendar for this academic year on SchoolSoft, the IES Krokslätt website and through the weekly newsletter from your child’s mentor.


I really look forward to seeing you all and start a new and exciting school year together.


Mr Carl Waddington
