(POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE) Faroese Public School 101: an information session for international parents
Where: Skúlin við Løkin, Runavík
When: 19.00 – 20.30, 10. Nov. 2021.
Who: This session is for non-Faroese parents of school-aged children in Nes, Runavík, and Sjóvar municipalities.
Host: Útlendingastovan and Vegleiðingarstovan.
Registration Deadline: By 9.00, 10 Nov. 2021
As non-Faroese parents, the Faroese Public School system may be unfamiliar and different from what you are used to. You may have learned bits and pieces, but you may not be entirely sure why the school teaches the way it does, what is expected of you as parents of school-aged children, and what secondary school opportunities exist for your children when the primary school comes to an end.
This information session is also relevant for parents who have small children not yet in school. The session covers the registration process for children who will start school as well as an overview of what the learning process will be like for your child.
During the information session, we will cover the following topics:
• Faroese Public School system setup
• The school's purpose and its traditions
• Parents’ involvement
• Resources for parents
• Secondary school and folk high school opportunities
Coffee and tea along with refreshments will be provided.
You are welcome to bring your children to the information session.
