Life at the School
Every year the school network of Tvind organize the Olympic games, a big event where all the students take part in a sports weekend with all kind of disciplines.
It is an amazing pedagogical occasion to get closer to a new sport’s vision where everyone can enjoy and be a winner.
Being part of our school means to be politically and socially active. This winter two events regarding the
environmental issues have made us take a stand and emphasize the seriousness of the climate change.
First we took part in the Conference of Youth (COY) in Bonn, Germany where among workshops, activities and discussions we met people from all over the world.
In our school at Lindersvold, we felt the necessity to organize a general meeting with the other schools, focusing on global warming and climate change, to create suggestions and new input to make the difference together.
As part of a team we share our free days and often we go to visit each other in the different schools where we are working. One of them is Søgardhus where, as part of the pedagogical program, the students learn sailing and working with boats.
Practical actions are fully part of our school program.
As DI’s, we develop our skills and discover every day new abilities. At the Day School in Tvind, each week on Wednesday we take part in these common actions in connection with the nature and the environment around us.
A tree house, bonfire place, gardening and wood production… are just some examples of the results and activities that, students and teachers develop and create. It is part of the education system.
Study weeks are always a productive way to spend time with the team, and to do our tasks and exams. During one of the study days, we used the week to visit our comrades in Norway and share with them seven amazing days; enjoying nature, skiing, being part of the daily life of the school. We also had the opportunity to exchange our knowledge.
The team that hosted us presented to us their investigation made in Palestine and, from our side, we performed in our people’s exam.
