This is a link to our school.
The Norway team attend the 9. grade at Sodin School in the town of Kyrksæterøra. Our school has both primary and secondary students from the surrounding community of Hemne. There are 400 pupils that attend Sodin school and classes are taught in the Norwegian language. The town of Kyrksæterøra is located half way up the coast of Norway and approximately 100km from the third largest city in Norway.
To represent Norway, the whole grade 9 group had a logo competition in class to create a logo for the project that would be used on the Norwegian project t-shirts. The local community and Norwegian companies were very supportive of the international project and provided funding for the project t-shirts.
Some of our sponser are: Hemne sparebanken, Sodin Skole, Moltubakk skilt og reklame, Gjensidige Hemne, Lerøy, Lund bakeri, Wacker Holla
