Parent Council

The Primary, Middle and High schools, along with the Kindergarten, is supported by an elected council with one representative for each class in the school. There is also an alternate class representative who is available for times when the parent representative cannot be. Parent Council class representatives are generally elected at the class meetings which are held early in the school year.

The Parent Council holds regular meetings, approximately monthly. One elected member of the council attends the school's board meetings to ensure that the parents' interests are represented in that forum. He or she is able to both take parents’ concerns and views to the Board and to share information from the Board with the parent body through the parent council members.

All parents are encouraged to express general ideas, concerns and suggestions about the school through their elected parent representatives.

The Parent Council supports the school with projects such as fundraising, improving the facilities and supplementing the school's resources, arranging special events.

Becoming involved in the Parent Council or its activities is an excellent way for new parents to meet others and to become a more active part of the Skagerak community.

How to support playground improvement

The Skagerak Parent Council has created a new committee to find new ways with the school to support the building of a modern playground. They are seeking your help. Do you have any contacts with companies who would help sponsor this project? Can you assist with raising funds? Do you have ideas for promoting the project to potential sponsors? Can you help prepare the playground by digging, removing debris, etc?

You can also support a new playground by joining the grasrotandelen (organization number 913 447 794) or make a donation to account 2480.10.10837. The account name is Foreningen for Skagerak skole og Framnes Nærmiljø.

You can also be a grasrotgiver through Norsk Tipping or mobilspill by texting our organization number to 2020. It's free! If you have any questions, contact Chairman Shyam Sundar Venkatraman at
