The full Year in Review is available only in Danish, but here are the highlights of the year in English:

  • Since the school was established, it has doubled in size – in terms of pupils, parents, teachers and pedagogues.
  • There were eight classes from Nursery through Primary 3 with a total of more than 200 pupils.
  • The school has two language sections, an English and a Danish section, but the pupils and staff speak many other languages as well.
  • The children in Primary 3 started “European Hours” lessons, where the children are taught in mixed teams across nationalities and language.
  • The school purchased three pianos and established its own European School Choir.
  • Construction of the school’s new school building in Carlsberg Byen continued and is progressing to plan and everyone is looking forward to see the final building.
  • In May 2017, the school officially established its own After School Care, which helps ensure continuity and alignment between school and after school care activities.
  • As a Save the Children ambassador school, we celebrated Children’s Rights Day and held our annual wellbeing day.
  • The school developed a shared vision with Sankt Annæ Gymnasium. The school also developed values for the school, involving all the school’s key stakeholders – pupils, staff, parents and Board – in the process.
  • The annual environment theme week took place in April and this year the theme was: All about water. Activities included dance, fishing, science experiments, art workshops and more.
  • In the spring, the school could congratulate its chess team for winning medals in both the Copenhagen Chess Championships and Danish Chess Championships!
  • After two years at Skolen i Sydhavnen, it was time to say goodbye and move to a new temporary location at Kirsebærhavens Skole in Valby until the new school building in Carlsberg Byen is completed.

Thank you for a great school year!

    New school building in Carlsberg City district tops out!
    We have reached another important milestone towards our move to the Carlsberg City district! On Monday 18 September, Carlsberg Byen A/S held a ceremony to celebrate that the builders have ‘topped out’ and placed the highest structural feature on our new five-storey school building in the Carlsberg City district. Topping out ceremonies are held to celebrate construction progress and are an opportunity to thank the builders, designers and engineers for their work to date.

    Successful first book fair
    The European School Copenhagen hosted its first book fair at the end of August. The purpose of the book fair was to encourage and inspire a love of reading in the children, so it was great to see that they all really enjoyed attending the storytelling and browsing through the many books.
