MY4 work experience days, 26 & 27 November

On Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 November, MY4 students will spend two days shadowing a job that they feel would be of interest to them. Job shadowing is intended to give students a realistic picture to the relevant tasks and responsibilities for a job where appropriate. Hosts are encouraged to give tasks that are meaningful and engage students which can help them develop key employ-ability skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, communication and time management. A survey will be distributed at the end of the second day so that hosts can give feedback on the student and their experience.

Here is the link to the form for those who are willing to host students. This form will remain open until Friday 26 October. Ms Sarah Sommerschield or Ms Fredriksen will contact you by 01 November to confirm student placement and make any further arrangements as necessary.

Thank you for investing your time and expertise in the Skagerak community.

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.

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.
