The Student Experience at ISGR
ISGR is more than just a great education!
Throughout the year our students on both sections and all grades participate in different activities and event. Some are in alignment with the curriculum and others are just for team building and fun!
The culminating event of the Primary Years Programme is the exhibition. Grade 5 students, along with all teachers, collaborate to research a topic they are passionate about and take action for change. The whole school community is invited to an event where students share their learning process and area of interest.
After Exhibition and before graduation, PYP 5 students attend an overnight outdoor camp accompanied by ISGR teachers. At camp, students can earn scout-style badges for completing physical and mental challenges that correspond to the elements of the PYP.
Grade 7 Camp
Each September our grade 7 go to the countryside for a yearly camp. There are cross-team events for the students to build friendships across the two sections.
Our grade 7 students who study Spanish as a language acquisition travel to Spain.
The students from the school Juan de Lanuza in Zaragoza then come to Gothenburg and spend a week living with our students and attending classes.
The French exchange is in collaboration with the school Juliot-Curie located in Nantes.
The exchange takes place each January/February. The French students then spend a week in Gothenburg, living with our students and attending classes.
MYP10 Personal Project
MYP10 students mark their final Middle Year with a personal project.
Each student chooses the topic of their project and is appointed a mentor to guide them.
Their final project is presented during an exhibition and students hand in a thesis paper of 3000 words.
In 2017 teachers from MYP/LGRM and IHGR took students From LGRM8 and MYP9 to the School of High Standard in Uganda. During the exchange students and teachers ran workshops on themes such as identity and tolerance.
Nordic Network Sports Tournament
Each year a school in the Nordic Network hosts the sports tournament for students, with a number of sports, such as basketball, netball, football and track & field.
After School Activities
We provide inclusive and engaging opportunities for children after school through clubs and activities. This allows children to further develop their social, emotional and educational skills. Together with the PTA, we support extra-curricular activities based on availability and interest.
