School and Education system in Norway

The first morning we were very welcomed by the head of school Harald Møller. He had plenty of time for us, even though it was the last week of the school year and parts of the school were a huge construction site. Harald explained a lot about the school, its branches and the history of the school. He also told us that Sandefjord Videregående Skole was the biggest school in Norway and furthermore he talked about the Norwegian ideal of a society and how school can help to build it.

Visiting their glass house

Visiting a garbage dump sounds, well, at the first sight a little smelly. Yes, it is. But this visit had so many tremendous surprises for us. Very creative and interesting what they do out of garbage. And we all can participate if we separate our waste properly. Amazing what one banana peel can do.

Diploma Ceremony

Friday we had a diploma Ceremony with the head of school again. We also got some Norwegian chocolate and a book about the 25 years of history of the school.
