We aim to develop a social, safe, respectful as well as enjoyable community, which will enable the students to get the best out of their stay and their academics while being in Ikast.
Choosing to become a dormitory student in our facilities involves no direct parental or other kind of supervision. The students will be provided their own room in a shared apartment. Hence, we do expect the students to take responsibility for themselves and their studies.
In order to become a student in the dormitories we expect the following:
In Denmark you are allowed to drink and purchase weak alcohol (below 16,5%) when you are 16 and stronger alcohols when you are 18 (above 16,5%). We expect you to at least follow and respect the Danish legislation, however if your parents have other requirements you ought to deeply consider following them.
Furthermore, we must emphasize that drugs are not allowed. If we feel that a student cannot handle the freedom the student has been provided by living independently in the dorms parents will be consulted.
Regarding food – the students will have facilities in their own apartment as well as in the common area that will enable them to cook for themselves. However, students living in the dorms are offered to participate in “the Sportstar College Plan”. The Sportstar College offers a food plan in their canteen. Learn more about the plan under Meals
Helene Møller Lauridsen is the supervisor in year 2015-16 and will be visiting the dorms at least twice a week to offer homework support, personal support, and to organise events with the dormitory students. The supervisor will also inspect the students’ rooms once a week. Currently, the dormitory students are arranging “cultural-dinner” together every Monday. Here the students cook food from their culture in turns.
Gitte Pilley is the IB coordinator and is also in charge of the dormitories. If the supervisor cannot help you consult Gitte.
Events: Throughout the year the supervisor will be in the dormitories at least twice a week. Some of these days will have actual activities such as movie nights, international-dining nights, food nights etc. The students are always welcome to organise something for the dormitories.
