Information about Onsbjerg Lilleskole in English

Onsbjerg Lilleskole is a small private school located at Samsø with approximately 70 children from 0. to 9. grade. We build on our strong foundations of diversity, mutual respect, moral integrity and social responsibility. To us it is important that all students feel welcome and we firmly believe that each and everybody have different skills but at the same time are of equal value as human beings.  Furthermore, it is important to us that the children like spending time in the school and feel a special responsibility to the school, other pupils and themselves.

To us formation and education are two sides of the same coin. Our approach take into account the individual skills and level of development of each child. The interaction between the children and teachers / other adults is of significant importance to us. This interaction fosters well-rounded citizens. The school is basis for social processes where the interchange between the individual and the community / group is of central importance.

We place particular value on the academic development of our children and devote time every day on central topics such as Danish, Math and languages. Furthermore, every week the children follow topics such as storytelling, cooking, chess, sports, art, thematic topic with the inclusion of geography, history, society and biology. Throughout the academic year, we furthermore teach in music, IT, physics, swimming and sex education.

We offer extra Danish classes for non-natives.

Modern computers with internet access are available to the children and we integrate IT in our teaching.

Thematic topics and project learning is a central part of our learning philosophy at Onsbjerg Lilleskole. In our theme weeks we mix math, Danish, English, crosscutting topics, art, drama, music, IT, natural sciences etc.

Every day we eat a snack and hot meal together. During the break at 09.45 the children enjoy a healthy snack and at 11.10 the children and teachers enjoy a delicious lunch together. The children help our cook preparing and serving the food.

After each school day our post-school care, SFO, is open to children from 0. to 3. grade. It disposes over to trained staff offering a wide range of activities or relaxing fun moments with school friends.
