Mandarin

Since 2010 our students have been given the opportunity to study mandarin.

China is used to be called the Middle Kingdom. Whether this is the new middle point in new world or not, there is an immense development going on in China. Chinese students are all over the world and are learning from other countries. Numerous Swedish students are also studying in China. Many companies set up in China and several visits the country. The Chinese themselves are traveling more than ever before.

Chinese chess

Svea School is giving the students the opportunity to learn about China, Chinese culture and history, and getting China-skills already in the grammar school years. Connected with learning mandarin is also understanding the Chinese community and why it look like it does: Where is China going? How does the development of China affect us and the rest of the world?

Our teacher in mandarin is Fengping Mao Palmblad:

Elin Mao

About the school

Why choose Svea School?

The school leaders are a vital part of the school and very easy to get in touch with. We have experience and a fantastic network. We hand pick dedicated teachers who are not only experts in their subjects but generalists as well which coincides with the school's science profile.


Objectives

Our students continually work on believing in their abilities and develop self-confidence when it comes to understanding the world around them. Our ultimate goal is that all school pupils, regardless of their background and circumstances, should be encouraged and inspired to think critically and continue to be hopeful and life-affirming individuals.


Education - learned?

The school's mission is to trigger curiosity and provide the tools to explore all areas of curiosity. Being educated means that you have the ability to understand and feel secure about contexts and parallels.


Science

In this day and age, some of mankind's most important questions are deeply rooted in the sciences. This is why we have chosen to give our students extra hours in these subjects. Curiosity and guidance are two key words in deciding what topics to work with. We pay close attention to what girls and boys want to learn.

Fiction

Literature provides students and adults with a well of interesting facts and information. Unfortunately this well is not readily used in many schools today. We use fictional novels to help our students get a better understanding of the overall theme-work topic.

School Description

We are convinced that the sooner we can get young people interested in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and technology, the easier for students to see and be able to use these skills in their lives to come. Therefore, we focus on these topics and work with the world outside school in exploring them (such is the University of Lund).

Together with the National Encyclopedia, Lund's University has been offering grades 6-9 exciting science and popular shows in biology, earth science, physics and chemistry, (and other school subjects as well).
This has been done to show that science is fun and that science can be an adventurous way of understanding how our world works.

In addition to collaboration with universities and colleges, we see the local business community as an important partner for our school. We are convinced that both schools and businesses benefit from these collaborations. These exchanges allow for employers to gain insight in how the schools of today shape tomorrow's employees. The school is involved in the activities taking place in the business and science world of today. Students gain knowledge of the conditions and demands of working life. They gain a better understanding of what it means to work as an adult and between theory and practice within the subjects they are learning. Our school is a part of our society, not an isolated island.
The school's management is continuously working on improving our network including both local businesses as well as within the various universities and international schools.

The school's approach is characterized by classes with inspiring teachers and communicative, practical exercises, labs, project-oriented thematic instruction, field trips and exhibitions. The school invests in multiple and recurrent work study opportunities.

Our value system affects activities throughout the whole school. This system of values deals with relationships between people, how we treat each other: as children, young people and adults. The value system is an ongoing process that covers all situations in school, in class, recess, on the move between classes, in meetings between students and school staff and teachers in the classrooms and we focus of strengthening democracy in school and society. In this way we prevent bullying, sexual harassment, violence, xenophobia and other ways of showing disrespect. The school works to help the pupils in developing language skills and a solid all-around education in order to have a rich life and also gain the ability to feel and express empathy.

The school is guided by and is actively working with questions about values by using Lpo 94, as follows:

Time is allowed for talks on and about the importance of relationships between people at all levels. That is relationships between: children, children and adults and adults.

Having adults present in informal settings, that is, school environments that are not directly related to teaching but where bullying may occur. Examples of these settings are hallways, school grounds and changing rooms.

Knowledge and skills in the area of values is continuously strengthened .

We have clear objectives at all levels in regards to values and these need to be continually improved on. A high degree of awareness of the true situation in the school is necessary as a basis for development.

We have a clear and visible leadership.

All the adults in school are responsible for helping in these areas.

Long term goals have been set up and these are continuously addressed. Both children and parents must be engaged and involved.

The school interacts with and benefits from interactions with the local community.

The school has a democratic mission consisting of various areas of importance. The first area deals with developing pupils' understanding of democracy and values, and this area is addressed in our teaching of subjects and when planning together. The second area helps our school to operate democratically in regards to work relations, both students and staff have an effect on and feel a strongly involvement in the atmosphere of their work environment. This influence is formally dealt with by having a student and parent council, staff meetings, staff/student meetings and discussions with students, staff and parents.

We are proud of the school's small size this helps us to create a safe environment for students.

We work in close consultation with the parents to see and respond to each individual the best possible way.

What methods do we use?

Thematic teaching

Thematic teaching entails incorporating different subjects into one main topic. This topic is the core of the theme work activities. To achieve this we have longer classes and an integrated school day. The content is clearly linked to students' everyday experiences. Reading literature plays a central role in the search for knowledge. Our approach is problem-solving, investigative and process-oriented. Ethical, moral issues and human relationships are important elements.

Adventures in Science on boys' and girls' levels

We at Svea School think it is important to translate scientific language to an understandable, everyday language. Boys' and girls' interests are different and it is important for educators to adapt to their various interests. Topics dealing with humanity, anatomy, psychology and health issues, environmental issues, communication and IT all have a central place in contemporary science subjects. We want to emphasize that nobody needs to be a master of these topics in the sixth grade. The important thing is that the students is curious about science and understand its importance in our world.

Cooperation with the University of Lund

How does one increase curiosity and lust for life? School Activities, meetings and research takes place before trips to Lund and once there, the university has spectacular science shows that awaken all your senses.

Cooperation with businesses and the city of Malmoe

It is important that our students successfully meet the challenges ahead. To do this, school and business must meet, share with each other and work together. It is important that we have a common understanding of what is happening in our society. Frequent, regular visits and work study opportunities is something we work intensively with.

Schoolsoft

Everyone at the school works with an interactive web-base tool called Schoolsoft. This is a tried program that simplifies the teachers' planning and doings while improving communication between the school and home. Using this tool has simplified the work of teachers while the student and parents have easy access to information about school work, attendance, performance reviews, plans, homework, tests, results, etc.

What is an independent school?

Independent Schools are funded by local school funds and no fees are charged to students nor their families. Independent schools are schools run by a private owner and the school is regulated by the state. An independent school is open to all regardless of where you live in the city, or which municipality you live in.

The most common myths about independent schools:

Myth: The number of independent schools has exploded.
Fact: Approximately 8% of the students in Sweden are attending an independent school, the majority of these are located in the Stockholm and Gothenburg region.

Myth: It costs money to go to an independent school.
Facts: Student fees are prohibited in independent schools as schools are funded by local municipal grants.

Myth: independent schools only want the good, trouble-free students.
Fact: Studies show that the percentage of children with special needs is higher in the independent schools than in the community run schools.

Myth: It is not appropriate that schools should be run by private companies.
Fact: All private businesses must make a profit. Ltd is a well proven, well-conceived business model, with clear rules on transparency. It is a business form that is highly suitable for operating a complex business.

Myth: Independent schools have contributed to segregation.
Fact: It is mainly housing that segregates. Segregation arises when people are not given choices. Independent schools often have their students from a wide geographic area and student composition therefore reflects different living environments and nationalities.

Myth: Independent schools are secretive and suspicious.
Fact: Independent schools are given permission to open by the Swedish government authority called Skolverket. the School Board controls all school supervision. The municipality in which the independent school also reviews all school activities.
