40 years as IB World School

This year, it has been 40 years since we started our journey as an IB World School.

SSHL was one of the first schools in Sweden to implement the IB Diploma Programme. Since then, thousands of students have studied IB Diploma and graduated from SSHL with great results.

For our anniversary, we were congratulated by the IB Organization with the following:

“The International Baccalaureate (IB) would like to congratulate you on reaching your 40th anniversary as an IB World School, joining a legacy of schools across the globe to reach this milestone.

Thank you for your continued commitment to empowering learners to thrive and make a difference.

Your whole school community has shown incredible resilience in what has been a challenging 18 months for all. When facing an unpredictable future, education is our greatest source of hope; your hard work and dedication to delivering an IB education means that you are developing the next generation of thinkers, creators and engineers, who will be ready to solve society’s most pressing challenges and build a better world.

The challenges we have all witnessed over the last year and a half, have proved that we are one world in need of innovative thinkers who can solve anything by putting cultural differences aside to work together for the benefit of all.

Your ongoing commitment to being architects of learning has built your reputation as working at the forefront of education. We would once again like to congratulate you on this anniversary and accomplishment. We look forward to continuing to work with you, to develop resilient, well-rounded young people who have the knowledge, skills and sense of purpose they need to thrive throughout their lives and contribute to making the world a better place.

A heartfelt congratulations and thanks,
Adrian Kearney
Director IB World Schools”
