Our students are back from their cultural studies trips and they're full of fun stories and wild experiences. We've opened up enrolment for Skydive, so if you're ready to take the plunge (literally), now's the time to sign up! And hey, our Full Host students spent their Easter holidays in Copenhagen exploring the city and having a blast. We're also looking forward to hosting our Culture and Family Day, where our students and teachers will share their adventures with you in pictures, stories and maybe even a film or two. All this and much more in this week's newsletter.

Full Host on tour
Full Host students have been enjoying Copenhagen at Easter.
They have visited Tivoli and 'Reffen', had a guided tour of Christiania, where they learnt some stories about the people who live there now and in the past.
Then one group went indoor skydiving, while the other group went to Amalienborg to see the Little Mermaid and other sights.
It was sunny but cold.
P3 Interest Vote
Now it is time for the pupils to choose their last profile subject, and there have already been many suggestions during the winter. It is now possible to vote, and you can find all the information on SkolePlan under announcements, where there is a link to fill out a questionnaire. The questionnaire for the P3 election ends on 17 April.
You can find the P3 selection questionnaire here here.
There is no parental confirmation of this choice, as the final excursion is not expected to be self-pay and will primarily take place in Denmark in the 2nd last week of the programme.
Invitation to the Culture and Family Day on 23 April 2023.
Dear parents and families.
You are invited to a Culture and Family Day, where pupils and teachers will talk about the Cultural Journeys in pictures, stories and possibly films. There will also be evaluation workshops during refreshments where you can meet with staff and share your experiences, opinions and ideas with us.
On Sunday we also celebrate the school's 19th birthday with lots of cake and refreshments and lunch for all groups at the advertised times in the dining hall.
The day's programme ends with a "gift of a lecture" specially adapted for parents, while pupils can visit each other's STEM workshop and spend time with their siblings and possibly grandparents, etc.
(Pupils and teachers receive specially organised lectures on digital literacy on Monday mornings).
"The art of screwing up several things at the same time" a gift lecture for parents.
Speaker and journalist Søren Hebsgaard has extensive experience in focusing on our use of mobile phones and screens, as well as digital education. Based on a survey among Ranum students, Søren addresses the difficult choices and situations where mobile phones or screens create challenges for community and presence. We encourage you to attend the lecture and support the dialogue about digital education, which is necessary for the students to get the full benefit of 1TP5Life - and life.
