Summer School leader
We still have room for children at this year’s summer school.
The summer school at Herlufsholm is a smaller summer school with a close-knitted, familiar atmosphere. It is a melting pot of languages and culture, and we make sure that all foreign children get a feeling of what the Danish culture is like as well an intensive language course. Danish children train their English proficiencies and get a new perspective on their own culture and heritage when this is put in an international perspective.
The two weeks at Herlufsholm offers a unique chance to experience life as a boarding student. Herlufsholm is known as a traditional school with strong academic values. The summer school gives the children an opportunity to experience this first hand. Every child has a dorm room – called a hummer by regular students – and they will try out the traditional sleeping arrangement where all students sleep in sleeping quarters. Everyone has a chance to explore a typical day at Herlufsholm with classes, arts, sport and social activities – and on top of all this: new friends from all over the world!
We are happy to welcome you to another fun and exciting summer school at Herlufsholm!
It is possible to register for Summer School 2017.
Dates: July 15 - July 29.
We look forward to receiving your application!
Herlufsholm Summer School has so far focused on Danish children living abroad, welcoming them to Denmark and teaching them Danish. But now the Summer School has opened up to Danish children, who wish to spend two weeks in an international environment, improving their English skills and making friends from all over the world.
The children will be mixed giving them the opportunity to make friends across boarders and for all to practice their Danish/English skills as well as see their own culture in a new perspective. When the students from abroad are having their Danish lesion, the Danish children will be working on a media project learning about presentation techniques, interviews and how to plan a movie including recording, editing and clipping – and they will in some cases include all the students in a joined language video project.
The summer school’s joined program offers physical recreation and creative activities. Every day the students (both International and Danish) will participate in sports and games, and all must sign up for music, arts or drama. In addition to this the days will be packed with social activities, cozy nights and excursions.
We are looking forward to having this Danish-International mix and hope that many Danish children will see this as an opportunity to have two fun and interesting weeks at Denmark’s oldest boarding school.
