SUF OS 2016

Vi börjar som vanligt med en gemensam kick-off i form av SUF-OS. OS i och med att det är OS år annars är det precis som det årliga SUF-VM som anordnas årligen för alla Svenska skolor i världen av SUF(Svensk Utlandsförening). Denna friluftsdag avlöper lördagen den 17 september kl 10-12, på Martingrove Collegiate i Etobicoke, på idrottsplatsen, dvs samma plats som tidigare år. 

Grenarna är löpning av olika distanser, längdhopp och kast med liten boll och barnen delas in i grupper efter ålder. Barn under sex år deltar inte officiellt i tävlingen men är likafullt välkomna att delta och ha roligt. Efteråt ordnar skolan med lite snack och juice. Vi välkomnar barn, syskon och föräldrar och hoppas på vackert väder denna lördag förmiddag!

Vi hoppas från stort deltagande från alla skolor.

V.g meddela senast den 15:e hur många vuxna/barn som kommer.

Välkomna!

Thanks to all volunteers

Another successful Swedish Christmas Festival has come to an end, thanks to all of our parent volunteers and especially a great big thanks to Ulrika and the "Loft committee"! As you know we put on this show every November in cooperation with SWEA and the Harbourfront Centre.

This year's ticket sales were up by over 200 tickets sold compared to the last year and we ended up very busy making an amazing 160 crafts per hour!  

Our "loft committee" is looking for more people to join our group. Do you want to help out?? I'm looking for 4-6 people that can get together a few times before next November 2016. We usually brainstorm, have fun and create new crafts for the new year. Feel free to use the "contact us" form and we will put you in touch with Ulrika.

Thank you for making hundreds of kids happy and excited about the upcoming Christmas Season!

Apply to TV show? Allt för Sverige.

Below is an excerpt from an email we received, which might be interesting to some of you (disclaimer: this is in no way connected to our School):

​Hi there!
My name is Sofia Eng and I am a casting director in Los Angeles. I am emailing you in regards to our successful nominated TV show “ALLT FÖR SVERIGE” (The previous working title of the show was Great Swedish adventure)
We are very happy to announce that we are now conducting a nationwide casting for season 5. Season 4 was beyond successful with the highest ratings ever of 46% in shares (2 million out of the 9 million population watched it)
We are looking for out-going fun adventurous people and they have to be Canadians of Swedish descent.
So we thought we would ask if you know of any people with a little Swedish Canadian blood. We are also looking for Canadian Finland Swedes. We would be so extremely grateful if you could either put up our flyer at your facility, forward our email, print it in a newsletter, post it on your website, or put it up on FB… with other words please feel free to pass it on!!!!!
Our deadline to apply is Feb 11. The show is shooting in the summer 2015 in Sweden.
To apply for our show they have to go on our website www.greatswedishadventure.com
I am also attaching an episode from season 4 of our nominated show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgAdtGmpI6A
I thank you so much for reading this and for your help.
All the best!
