Thanks to the financing by the Nordplus Programme we as Mariager Højskole have a project running in the school year 2022/23
The project funds a part of the cost for our project whose aim “… is for the Estonians to experience Danish culture, a Danish Folk High School, participate in the education at this school alongside the Danish students, get digital competences and be prepared for a digital society and computational thinking, learn about the Danish educational system, visit Danish families / homes / companies, work-places etc.” (Read more on www.nordplusonline.org). This project is only a possibility due to good relations to and collaboration with a partner bible school in Estonia named SA EKNK Õppekeskus (Read more on www.piiblikool.ee/en/). Following are some brief accounts on the project’s prime activities.
Estonian Focus Day
The 9th of September 2022 Mariager Højskole hosted a special day with the focus on Estonian history, daily life, arts, food among other things.
Other activities during 2022/23
From August 2022 through June 2023, the Estonian students participated in many other activities at Mariager Højskole (see: www.mariagerhojskole/elev). They spent time with Danish students, teachers, and coaches and participated in group work, discussions, work-shops, projects etc.
Besides the activities mentioned above, they participated in excursions to historic-cultural spots, educational institutions, different churches etc., in Denmark and also visited Danish families.
