Prom night 2017

Student Work
Prom night 2017

Last week we had a wonderful prom for our year 9 students to celebrate the three delightful years we have enjoyed with them here at the International English School in Gävle.

The students showed up at Två Kockar (Two Chefs) in amazingly beautiful dresses, gowns and tuxedos.  We started things off with some time for our students to mingle and take photos with one another, before we had a three course dinner. The dinner program begun with an emotionally moving piano performance by Deniz Hamidi.  As a surprise, the staff had made movies depicting some of the most endearing characteristics of each of our fantastic year 9 classes.  We hope that you have a chance to see them.  A big thanks to IES Gävle alum, Eric Norberg for the countless hours of editing and production of the videos.

All students had a great time and were extremely well behaved.  Two students who surely had an exciting evening were our Prom Royalty.  This year, Olivia Grönlund Karlsson and Fabian Pernesten were announced as this year’s royalty after dinner.   Dinner was followed up with a waltz and then the disco started with the help of DJ Papi.  Both staff and students finished off the night on the dancefloor.  

The staff is so pleased with our beautiful year nine students and we will surely miss them now when they are heading for new adventures. We wish them a bright and prosperous future.
