Future Problem Solvers - Skagerak participating in international conference in Wisconsin, USA

3 teams of students from the Primary and Middle Schools have been invited to represent Norway at the Future Problem Solvers (FPS) International Conference in America, where they will compete with students from around the world solving potential future scenarios about the global issue of criminal justice systems. The Skagerak students voluntarily chose to attend sessions run by Ms Schäfer this academic year, where they were taught how to think, rather than what to think. They researched a variety of global issues, such as infectious diseases, toxic materials, philanthrocapitalism and cloud storage, and followed a six-step model of critical and creative thinking, problem solving and decision making to solve potential future problems related to these issues. The students had to raise their level of comprehension and view issues from multiple perspectives, identifying underlying problems and coming up with possible solutions, which they then turned into action plans. Approximately 2,200 students from all over the world are expected to attend this year´s conference, held at University of Wisconsin (La Crosse in Wisconsin, USA), from June 6 – 10, 2018. As the only participating school in Norway, our teams will not only be representing Skagerak, but Norway, too.

If you would like to donate to help fund their trip, please use https://www.gofundme.com/SkagerakFPS

Sustainability Museum


The Middle School will be hosting a Sustainability Museum next Friday 27 April kl.1300 to kl.1515. This will be the culmination of the middle school's focus days where students will be inquiring into sustainable consumption and purposeful reuse. This process is designed to investigate how we can sustain the use of something, thereby reducing the need to a) create waste and b) consume more stuff.

This event also coincides with the PY5 loppemarked and the Y11 student sustainable business challenge.

Come and join us to share in increasing awareness about responsible consumption of goods and purposeful reuse.
