Welcome to the Boarding School
Dear new student and parents
Welcome to the boarding school at Nyborg Gymnasium. We are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, August 12, between 3.00 – 5.00 p.m.
You probably have several different reasons for applying the boarding school at Nyborg Gymnasium.
There are two things that are fundamental for the social environment and the everyday life of the boarding school. The first one is the respect for your studies at the gymnasium as your studies are the prerequisite for living at the boarding school. The other thing is the mutual tolerance and consideration for your fellow boarders which is required for 160 boarding school students to live beneath the same roof and interact with each other.
We want the individual student to feel safe and, at the same time, be given good opportunities for personal development. These are elements we believe in and want to encourage. Some might consider freedom with responsibility as an empty phrase, but at the boarding school, we give meaning to the phrase.
Besides this greeting and a schedule of the first week of introduction, we would like you to read the bording school's 10 commandments, which are relevant for you to know beforehand. At Nyborg gymnasiums website, you can find an version of the boarding school booklet 'Boarding School's rules and practical information', which is good and essential reading before starting at the boarding school. If you have any questions you are very welcome to call the gymnasium or the boarding school.
We wish you and your family a very nice summer and are looking forward to a year of good fellowship and great experiences.
On behalf of the boarding school staff
