For us as a small community and small school it is vital that we make a special effort to maintain international communication. We want to guide our students to see nature, culture, history etc. in a European context and to grow into a socially and digitally responsible citizenship. Living in the countryside far from major cities means that our students need to participate in multicultural activities to protect them from social exclusion. It is also important that they understand how to positively influence the increasingly digital world.
