Homework Assistance

Homework Club has resumed in 2018. After school homework assistance is provided on each Monday, 3:15 to 4:00 pm, and Tuesday, from 2:45 to 4:00 pm, for all PY2-MY4 students. Students are welcome to attend if they would like some help with their homework from a member of staff.

Assisting staff for 2018 is Ms Kristina Unhjem, kristina.unhjem@skagerak.org, and unless notice is given otherwise, the homework club meets in the PY3 classroom.

All students who come to homework club must have homework to do and a book to read or drawing materials to use, should they complete their homework before they are collected. If the student attends SFO regularly, he/she will be sent to SFO when homework is completed. This is meant to be a peaceful space where a student can work quietly and receive assistance as needed.

Primary Winter Performance - 14 December

We welcome you to the Skagerak Primary School winter toy room on Thursday 14th December, to come and meet the new members of our toy room. They have been hand-picked to represent some of the most iconic toys children have played with for hours, days, months and years. Just how many Russian dolls can you find hiding? Why do kites fly so high? And what really happens when the teddy bears have their picnic?

Holiday greetings from the principal

Christmas holidays are soon upon us and we are nearing the halfway mark of the school year. As we soon enjoy holidays across the globe or in beautiful Sandefjord, I thought I would give you an overview of the upcoming dates and other information before we start the holidays. As always, if you have any questions or require more information about the events below, please contact the school.

School calendar for 2018-2019

Lost and found

Every year an expansive collection of Lost and Found items are collected in the Primary and Middle school. These items are displayed in the front hallway of the red building until next week. Please take an opportunity to peruse the items. All remaining items will be donated to charity on December 15th.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, students and parents for their continued support from the start of the year. Skagerak is truly a community and it is at this time of year that it really shows, in the hallways, classrooms and in the students faces. The 2018 school year will bring new learning experiences, new challenges and new fun. I look forward to what lies ahead for us as at Skagerak!

I hope to see as many parents as possible at the Primary winter performance or before the break begins next Friday, but if not I wish you all Peace, Joy, Hope and Happiness during this Holiday season and throughout the New Year.

Kind regards, James Tester

Cyber bullying/Internet awareness/Gaming seminar, 2 November

On Thursday November 2nd we will have a guest speaker, David Hasseløy from Barnevakten, coming to the school to speak with parents about cyber bullying, internet awareness and gaming addiction.

The last time we had a visit from Barnevakten about internet awareness was in March 2015 and we remember the presentation as highly relevant and useful. Given the rapid changes in media and technology, we thought it is a good time to have another session with Barnevakten. The presentation is in English, the PowerPoint slides are in Norwegian. There will be opportunity for interaction and discussion.

If you would like to know more, please visit the Barnevakten webside: http://www.barnevakten.no/

Time: November 2nd at 17:00 – 18:30

Place: Lars Ask auditorium

We think this is an important topic to be addressed and hope that as many as possible can attend.
