Introducing IES Länna's House Competition

Introducing IES Länna's House Competition

This year at IES Länna we will be introducing our very own house competition. The purpose for this is to raise school spirit outside of classroom learning and develop fun and healthy competition amongst students and staff (possibly even families). There is a big emphasis on participation ; for students to have the opportunity to try a range of academic, sporting and cultural events throughout the year. There will also be theme days in which students are able to dress in theme and earn points for their house. 

Each student and staff member has been randomly placed in one of the four houses (a big thank you goes to Ms Unander-Scharin for her time put into the placement of everyone). Each house has a primary colour; red, blue, yellow and green and while they are not named yet, the very first house competition is for the students to design the house logos with a connected name based on a native Swedish animal. We wanted this to be a way for students to take ownership and feel connected to their houses.

We encourage families to get involved and encourage the participation from students for the theme days and events as they come throughout the school year.

We will send out more information and dates of theme days and events but if you have any specific questions feel free to contact me via email.

Thanks for your support within this exciting new area of our school.

Information Meeting

Information Meeting

Attention, parents!

We warmly invite you to our beautiful school on Monday, September 9 from 18.00 to 19.20. There will be lots of information and--more importantly--lots of fika :) Come enjoy both, and make sure you register at the link on SchoolSoft. (More information is also found there.)

We hope to see you soon!

Class Information

Class Information

All students have been placed in classes and emails were sent out yesterday and this morning with information about mentors. Due to technical difficulties, you may have received the email twice (possibly even with “TEST” as the subject line), but the information in the body of the email is correct.

You can also see what class your child is in and who their mentor is on SchoolSoft. If you do not have a SchoolSoft login or do not remember it, do not fear! New students/parents will receive login information on the first day of school. If you are a returning parent, please email Ms. Fredrika Unander-Scharin and she will help you reset your password.

Due to GDPR laws, we cannot release class lists. Please use the first day of school to meet your new classmates. We do not alter the class lists once they are set.

With comments or questions, please contact the Vice Principal, Mr. Henric Ljung.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Dear parents and guardians,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I hope you all had a restful summer with plenty of sunshine, relaxation and time with your families.

To our returning students and parents, welcome back! We're excited to see how you've grown and hear all about your summer break. We're also looking forward to working with you in your new classes and building on all the values we worked on last year.

To our new students and parents, welcome to IES Länna! As I've told many of you before, IES Länna is not a "regular" school. You and your child will have a special experience here and it will be challenging at times. We are, however, ready to support you with those challenges. What an exciting journey it will be!


Please note the following start and finish times for the first day of school:


Year 4: 8.15 to 13.50

Welcome from Mrs. Kelly on schoolyard at 8.15. Parents are welcome to stay for information from the mentors and leadership team until 10.00. Students will be dismissed at 13.50 so their mentors can escort them to the bus stop or to Junior Club. Junior Club is free and open to everyone in Years 4-5 during the first week of school. More information about how to register and pay has been/will be sent by administration.

Years 5-6: 9.00 to 14.00

Years 7-8: 9.30 to 14.15

Year 9: 10.00 to 14.30

All year groups will start on the schoolyard with a welcome from Mrs. Kelly and the school leadership. 



Students will follow their normal schedules. Schedules will be handed out on the first day of school and will also be available via SchoolSoft.


As always, a member of the leadership team will be outside supervising the schoolyard from 7.45 each morning (8.15 on Mondays due to our later start that day). We love spending this time outside with the children and waving to the parents, so please use this as a guide to when you can drop your child off even before you receive his/her schedule.

With any questions, please contact Ms. Unander-Scharin at or 08-20 90 15, or me directly at or 076 852 0401.

Enjoy the last days of your summer holidays, and I look forward to seeing you all soon!


Big hugs,

Mrs. Kelly
