A meeting with the Mayor

radhus Asker

The school board, school administration and parent representative were grateful to be invited to a luncheon with Mayor Lene Conradi, Councillor Lars Bjerke and Head of School Services Jo Fiske.

We had a very productive meeting. Principal Robert Browne provided a brief update on the school's development over the past 3 weeks. The group discussed many factors related to the school, including the developmental plans of the general area surrounding the school over the next 10 years and that of the building itself.

Two topics discussed at length were facilities and the growth and expansion of the school. It was agreed that the principal would submit a strategic plan for the development and expansion of the school. In line with this, the representatives of Asker Kommune stated they would endeavour to work with our strategic plan to ensure the growth of the school.

The lack of gym facilities was also discussed. We were delighted to hear that Asker Kommune had not only reflected on this but were actively working to put a solution in place in the near future. This was very positive news indeed.

The meeting itself was a clear sign of commitment from Asker Kommune and its representatives Lene Conradi, Lars Bjerke and Jo Fiske. Asker Kommune has always been and continues to be committed to the development of Asker International School.

We would like to take this opportunity to again thank Lene, Lars and Jo for investing their time and energy in this school project. The future growth of the school is secure and promising.



Official Opening Day


All are welcome to visit our school on this occasion. Our doors are open to your friends and family. We hope you will help us celebrate the establishment of a new international school in Asker. 


Our first fire drill


We had our first fire drill today. The children did very well indeed. They managed to exit the building in a very orderly fashion in less than 2 minutes and may I just add that grade 1 in particular were brilliant. 

We discussed the importance of doing fire drills and it would be useful if parents could discuss this at home. One or two kids talked about being prepared by wearing their shoes in bed, so dont be overly surprised if you find your son or daughter in pyjamas and a pair of rubber boots in the evening!

It is very important that students have indoor shoes here at school and that they understand that they have to wear them. We are mandated to have 2 fire drills per annum but we will have more. Students will not have time to put on outdoor shoes and get ready. 

Although our first fire drill was successful, we left some doors open. So that is an area to improve on. In the next few weeks we will use the emergency exit so students get used to that also. 

So congratulate your child on a job well done!

Yours sincerely, 

Robert Browne
