At the school there is ample opportunity for physical activities as it is situated on a large plot with soccer field, campfire site, nature playground, sandboxes, swings, climbing tower, shelter and much more. There is also plenty of forest, thicket and lovely old crooked trees, where the children climb and make hide-outs.

Kassebølle Friskole is a “free school” based on the Grundtvig-Koldian perspective on school and life, and this means that the school does not profess to a certain ideology or a certain pedagogical principle.

The foundation, that is built up in childhood, is the foundation for every human being’s attitudes and actions throughout their lives. It is therefore one of the school’s most important tasks to confer the children with the “ability to live their lives” (livsduelighed).

Therefore, we attach particular importance to:

  • Teaching takes into account the development and abilities of each child.
  • The school is based on close contact between school and home and prioritizes shared experiences among students, parents and teachers highly.
  • There is great openness about the school’s everyday life, and parents are always welcome to attend in the classroom.

Three residents  work on the farm, the rest in nearby places. The aim of Bernards Hus is to make the residents able to move into flats and be able to take care of themselves outside an institution, if it is possible. Otherwise there is also the possibility to live permanently in Bernards Hus.

In Bernards Hus there are three fully qualified staff members and a Daily leader, there is a person on duty 24 hours a day.
At Barnards Hus we have a lot of experience with young volunteers helping out, it adds life to the house, which the regular staff can’t give. The world opens up and moves into the house with all the benefits that it provides, both to the volunteers and the residents at Bernards Hus.

Lebe und Lerne an einem einzigartigen “Folk College” in Dänemark (Non European Solidarity Corps program for Germans)

Bist du zwischen 18 und 30 Jahre alt und hast Lust als Teil einer engen internationalen Gemeinschaft von gleichaltrigen gemeinsam zu Leben und zu Lernen? Dann könnte eines der für Dänemark einzigartigen “Folk Colleges” etwas für dich sein! In “Folk Colleges” kannst du Kurse in Bereichen wie Global Citizenship, Kultur, Kunst, Schauspiel, Musik, Sport, Filmproduktion, Design, Tanz, Nachhaltigkeit und vielem mehr belegen.

Dänische “Folk Colleges” sind besondere Orte, wo es nicht um Noten und Examen sondern kooperatives und interaktives Lernen mit vielen praktischen Workshops und Projekten geht. Neben vielen neuem Wissen und Fähigkeiten wirst du mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit viel auf persönlicher, interpersoneller und interkultureller Ebene lernen.

Zudem triffst du auf andere gleichaltrige, die alle neu in der gemeinsamen Heimat ankommen, neue Freundschaften knüpfen und gemeinsam Umfeld und Freizeit gestalten wollen. Ihr esst, schlaft, besucht eure Kurse und verbringt eure Zeit im “Folk College” gemeinsam. Mit anderen Worten, du wirst Teil einer familiären Gemeinschaft, in der ein sicherer und respektvoller Raum zur persönlichen Entwicklung geschaffen wird, in dem man neues ausprobieren, Fehler machen und so mit neuen Inspirationen Lernen kann.

An diesem Rückzugsort kannst du dich frei von alltäglichem Stress voll und ganz auf die neuen Erfahrungen konzentrieren, deine vorhandenen Talente weiterentwickeln oder komplett neue entdecken.
