Students pay a visit from Norway

STUDENTS from a Norwegian school have had a taste of British college life at Scarborough Sixth Form College.

The 56-strong group of Scandinavians, accompanied by seven teachers from Fyllingsdalen School in Bergen on the western coast of Norway, spent a morning as special guests of the college.

Beginning with an introductory talk by vice-principal Rowan Johnson on the education system in this country, their guided tour of the campus featured the college’s newly completed music centre, part of a current £1 million investment at the institution.

The Norwegians also participated in a typical A-Level general studies lesson at the college which made use of their advanced English language skills.

English teacher and group leader Linn Svardal Gunnerod said: “We enjoyed visiting an English college. It is interesting to compare everything we have seen today to our own education system.

“We would like to thank the Sixth Form very much for their hospitality.”
