Enrolment

The school has had a very successful start with twice the number of students as expected. Enrolment has gone through two fases. The first was the initial offer of a place where all those families that attended our virtual meeting earlier this year were offered a place. The second phase started in May where families are placed into one of two groups.

Group 1 are families that are new to Denmark for the purposes of work. This group receive priority enrolment and are the target group for the school as described in the KIG law and the schools by-laws. This group must be the majority.

Group 2 is basically everyone else; mixed families, permanent residents, repats and Danish.

The chart below shows the size of each group currently. As you can see Group 2 is the larger group, therefore any further enrolments for Group 2 is closed for the remainder of the school year. Any interested families that fall into Group 2 are still offered an interview and may apply to be on a waiting list.

Student Target Group. Group 1: 36 %, group 2: 64%

In the meantime, and new arrivals to Denmark will continue to be offered a place.

Håndværk og Design

Håndværk og Design is a subject that teaches children knowledge and skills in crafts, processing, materials and design processes through practical work with different crafts, primarily in textiles, wood and metal. At Lolland International School this is taught in Danish from Grade 2-9. In this subject, the students must, through practical and sensory experiences, develop competencies to design, manufacture and evaluate products with aesthetic, functional and communicative value. The subject strengthens the students' innovative and entrepreneurial competencies taking an idea through to a finished product at an age appropriate level.

As an example, recently Class B made an underwater scene by printing on fabric. Additional materials to use as coral, fish or seaweed were collected on a nature walk. Another example of the learning experience in this subject was an excursion to Maribo Craft Days where children got to see and experience weaving as well as visiting the new forest troll in Maribo.

You can see more about Håndvæk og Design and other subjects through our social media pages:

Halloween

On Friday the 29th November, the school enthusiastically jumped in to all thing Halloween. The day began with a morning assembly. Children sang some spooky themed songs in Danish and English before seeing a fabulous performance by the boys in Class B.

The day continued with a rotation of activities that involved creative and active tasks. The best part for most was the Halloween cake buffet. Thank you to all those that prepared a ‘horrible’ treat for the children. Everyone involved really enjoyed the day.

A generous donation
