Happy new year 2017!
Asker International School will seek to assist each student to develop to his/her full potential, to become a versatile, effective and responsible citizen of the world.
We will do this within a secure and stimulating environment, delivering curricular programmes developed and authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), with English as the medium of instruction.
As an international school, we will be committed to fostering international understanding, and an awareness in each student of issues such as peace, freedom, and care of the environment – issues which are of concern to us all as world citizens.
Important note (edit 16th August):
There are currently no places available at Asker International School but that can change. We encourage anyone interested to apply using our online registration system. We will then contact you if we are able to offer a place at the school.
We have received 40 applications for grade 1 2017. We do not make offers of school placement for grade 1 2017, until December 2016 in accordance with our intake criteria (inntaksreglement). Applications for all other grades are processed on a continuous basis and based on availability.
Please collect your child at the main entrance of the school. Please wait opposite the entrance, not right by the door,otherwise you will obstruct the exit. If everyone sticks to this then we have a better overview of the children.
End of school times: Monday and Tuesday:15:30, Wednesday: 12:15, Thursday and Friday: 14:45, except grade 6 and 7 - 15:30 on Thursdays.
Please use the marked areas for pedestrians on the left and right. This may not seem important now but will become more-so as the year progresses and the evenings get darker.
Please have indoor shoes and rain clothes for your child. We will be going out most days in most weather. We are rarely indoors at break time. Indoor shoes are also important for when we have a fire drill, as children cannot stop to gather shoes/clothing.
There is a child in the school building with a hyper-nut allergy. So please refrain from putting nuts in lunch boxes. This includes staff. Please also check ingredients of popular bread-spreads. For more information click here.
Please check the school webpage frequently, especially the class blogs and news section. Save the path to your favourites on your phone. If there is information missing please let us know. Equally if there is anything you think might be nice to have.
