The French Cookery Club So Delice runs on Mondays and Wednesday after school. Please contact Ms Folan firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. The focus is on fresch, locally sourced, organic produce and the students have the change to learn all about French regional cookery under the tutelage of a professional French Chef.
Last weekend, the Sandefjord Playmakers engaged their audience with an adaptation of C S Lewis’s classic favorite: Narnia, the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The play was the most successful of the Playmaker’s four productions to date. There were over forty students involved with the production, including current and former students at Skagerak. According to Mr. Firing, “The students were really engaged . . .The costumes, lights and the make-up were excellent. And the fights…….” Enough said.
Today, Skagerak International School made history. For the very first time, the entire school from kindergarten through the diploma program, came together...to draw! Everyone, regardless of ability or natural talent, had the chance to play, observe, solve problems, and use unconventional tools. Students rotated through activities, as older students took responsibility for the younger ones. Teachers of all grade levels had the opportunity to work together. The day ended with a whole school art competition judged by professionals. What an amazing experience, and a great way to spend time as one school!
Fantasy Night proved to be full of ghosties, goblins, food and fun for everyone. Thank you Parent Council, for planning this exciting night for the Primary School children. There were sticky, creepy games to play, pumpkins to carve and yummy treats to eat. The scary haunted house was made particularly frightening by creative Middle School students and there was a very mysterious fortune teller. What a frighteningly wonderful evening!
On Friday 19 September Primary school will celebrate International Peace Day. PY5 have planned an exciting day of school-wide events as part of their unit of inquiry “Peace and Conflict”.
Please dress in anything that represents peace to you!
Planned activities include art and craft projects, a football tournament, an assembly performance…and much more.
There will also be school-wide activities run throughout the week: Yoko Ono wish tree, interactive display- “When you close your eyes and think of peace what do you see?”, Lotus pots will be in all classrooms during the week- students write about people they have seen doing peaceful/kind acts and put them in the lotus pot.
Our annual Skagerak Day was a success, despite a bit of rain. Children enjoyed face painting, games, food, and throwing a wet sponge at Mr Deppong. Thank you Parent Council for another wonderful event and to Middle school students for helping as well. See some photos from the day, here.
Every year, Skagerak Kindergarten and Primary put on a show in December. This year, primary school students displayed an array of talent in an exciting performance of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. Following the performance there was a special visitor and a collaborative art work auction to raise money for our playground. See some photos of the night, here.
An assortment of weird and wonderful characters gathered to attend the annual Primary school Fantasy Night.
There was pumpkin carving; yummy baked treats; a mysterious fortune-teller; a terrifying haunted house and a spooky disco . The games room was full of smelly, sticky fun - the children especially enjoyed searching for a magic ring in slimy green goo.
A special thanks to the Parent Council for organising this amazing event!
The United Nations' (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on 21 September each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.
This year PY5 students organised Peace Day at Skagerak Primary school as part of their “Peace and Conflict” unit studies. PY5 led activities in all primary classrooms including painting pebbles for peace; face-painting; peace pinwheels; peace flag- making and reading stories. At snack a bake sale was held to raise money for UNICEF. During lunch students organised a “One Day One Goal” football tournament. At the closing assembly the PY5 students promoted peace through song, poetry and drama. It was a great day!
Every year Parent Council arranges a day of games and fun for Skagerak children, parents and friends. We welcomed in the school year with Skagerak Day outside on the school grounds in August. There were talented face painters, challenging games to play, good food to eat, along with lots of laughs and fortunately, sunshine!
Many exciting things have happened since the beginning of the school year. Our first assembly was connected to the Who We Are theme. We sang songs and presented our unit work to each other. The Primary school showed the Skagerak house team spirit by dressing in their team colors and creating an enthusiastic cheer. It has been a great start to a new year!
