Skagerak community is invited to join the dedication of The Elisabeth Norr Library

Skagerak International School is pleased to announce the dedication of its Senior School Library in honour of the school's founder, Elisabeth Norr. The Skagerak community is invited to join the dedication celebration during the its 17th of May breakfast celebration at 8:30.

Ms. Norr has been called Skagerak's "first lady," recognised for opening the school nearly 30 years ago. She subsequently guided Skagerak to the flagship reputation it enjoys today, both here in Norway and internationally. Ms Norr's passion for high quality teaching, combined with her desire to offer students only the best, led her to share her teaching experience from around the world; returning eventually to Sandefjord and establishing Skagerak International School in 1990. Ms. Norr has provided an opportunity for many thousands of students to attend an international school and experience the International Baccalaureate Programme.
