Focusing on the class community
A significant prerequisite for gaining value from the education is to feel part of the class community.
That’s why the first day of school is filled with activities that provide a great opportunity to start getting to know each other.
Throughout August and September, all classes go on a 1½-day stay at the DGI Karpenhøj Nature and Outdoor Center.
Especially during the first year, but also in the second and potentially third years at Grenaa Gymnasium, the class teachers have a yearly plan that ensures a continuous focus on creating a secure framework within the class, characterized by camaraderie, openness, and mutual respect among the students.
The buddies keep an eye on each other’s well-being during classes and breaks.
Two buddy pairs form a buddy group, which functions as a work group during classes.
Every 3 weeks, the buddy pairs change, so each student gets to know and work with many others in the class
You learn best when school is not just about teaching, but also a community where you feel happy and secure.
After the first few weeks, the class, together with the class team teachers, sets some goals for how they want to treat each other. They discuss with the class team teachers how they can create the best environment for the class to become a community that everyone feels a part of.
