Dear SDIS community,
The school will remain closed until Thursday, 26th March, following the directives from the Norwegian government. More information from FHI can be found here. We will keep you updated if the situation changes.
I am taking this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the community.
1. Thanks to all the parents who support online learning at home. Thank you for being open-minded and collaborative.
2. A deep thanks to our teachers who exhibited great leadership skills during this transition. They are adaptive, positive, energetic and most importantly caring. They are the best people to work with.
3. A thank you to the students who embraced online learning and demonstrated creatively the fact that: Learning does not only happen in school.
4. Last but not least, I would like to thank our leadership team. Ms. Polly, the PYP Coordinator, and Mr. Kolven, the Director of Student Services, who worked tirelessly in this process and made the online learning both accessible and exciting.
I am so lucky and grateful to work and serve in this community.
This is a challenging time for all of us. But I strongly believe, if we keep united and take our responsibility to protect ourselves, we will protect others.
I look forward to meeting you again face to face at school when we, as a human race, win this fight.
Stay positive, stay united and stay healthy!
