Star Harley and Maria , one more question  Confused how long does primary school last, here it's 8 years, jr infants, senior infants , 1st, 2nd , third , fourth , fifth and 6 th class. 2nd and 6 th are what we call communion and confirmation class.

10 years with a possible extra year, if you want/need it.


Omg, I thought 8 years were fairly long! Thanks

Ten or eleven years in primary school seems quite long to what I am used to as well.  Thinking
How many more years are spent in Secondary School before a young Danish person can enter University?
It is interesting to learn about the Irish School System too, Tigerben, thanks.

Here, in Victoria, it's one year of 4 Year Old Kindergarten that is paid for by the Government before Primary School starts.  (Some children also attend Kinder before that and pay privately.)

Children must be turning 5 no later than the 30th. April of the year that they start.
(All children start school at the start of the school year, at the end of January.)
So that makes the youngest child about 4 years and 9 months and the oldest would be about six.  (Parents can delay their child starting school until they are six.)

Primary School consists of seven levels - Prep and Years One to Six. Seven years in total. (..unless a child is held back due to them not coping, which is an unusual but acceptable occurrence.)

Secondary School then consists of six years.  Years Seven to Twelve.
Of those, Year Eleven and Year Twelve are the final years - when most children who wish to attend Tertiary institutions study for University Entrance Scores..  Some bright kids can start Year Eleven subjects in Year Ten and therefore can finish Secondary School a year earlier and some kids like to take three years to complete Years Eleven and Twelve - so take an extra year at Secondary School.  It is by far the most common practise for children to spend six years in Secondary School though.  
Some people who don't wish to go on to University concentrate on more practical subjects during their Year Eleven and Twelve and graduate with alternate qualifications such as the first year of a Building Apprenticeship or Food Handling Certificate.

So Victorians tend to spend thirteen years at school before University - from ages 5/6 to 17/18.
Students are 17/18 when starting University. (If they take a Gap Year, they'll be one year older.)

Does the Danish system have fewer years at Secondary School?
Or do Danish students begin University at an age older than 18?

High school, which gives acces to University, is three years.

Thank you, Maria.   Thumb up

Danish children attend the same school for a huge proportion of their schooling.
(I'm assuming that children don't swap Primary Schools .. but maybe they do.)
It would be important that the school suits them.  Thinking
Do you find differences in the delivery of education of Primary Schools.
Are some very Arts driven and others into Sports or Maths?  Do they tend to cater for certain types of children or is the aim of Primary Education to have a uniform standard and experience over all.

Are the High Schools focused on specialist areas perhaps.?
I guess it would be fun to attend the High School.  All students would be older.

Most Primary Schools are very much alike. The differences depends mostly, IMO, on what sort of student body there is. And also sadly on how rich a community the shool is in. But overall most school are very much alike. There's not a tradition of school sports in Denmark - kids go to sports/music/other activities on their own after school.

Here in the US you can start Kindergarten at 5 (cutoff date varies but normally anywhere from Sep 1 to Dec 1). But, Kinder isn't mandatory so some do private K & then an extra year of public K. That means you can start the year with kids as young as 4 & as old as 6.
Primary is probably K-6 with Jr High being 7-8 & high school 9-12. At age 16 (around 10th grade) you can drop out of school but that means no diploma so it's discouraged. Everyone can go through 12th grade.

Soon to be confirmed boy.
And siblings.

(How cute Little Henrik!)



If I didn't know, or if no one told me, I'd have thought they're all full-siblings the way they interact with one another. Great to see the brothers holding hands

Cute. It may be too soon but I'm starting to wonder if Felix is going to end up being the taller of the 2 brothers. Nikolai has time to sprout but his mother is pretty tiny & he may have taken after her. 2 of my DHs brothers are short like their mom as opposed to tall like dad (there's almost a foot height difference between husband & wife).

Was surprised to see that Nikolai was not quite cute/striking as a baby. Wouldn't have thunk it. He's grown up really well Smiley

interesting  



Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik arrive at Amalienborg Palace for the royal family’s balcony appearance on Queen Margrethe’s 69th birthday, 16 April 2009. Among the first to greet them is their nephew, Prince Nikolai. Mary goes, “Nikolaaaaaiiiii!”.




Crown Prince Frederik hugging his nephew. Margrethe and Christian, even though he apparently gets distracted after the first kiss.

June 17
It was announced that Nikolai is changing schools





HH Prince Nikolai changes schools and starts to August 10th at Herlufsholm boarding school.

He just finished going to Krebs's school and will be going to Herlufsholm boarding school after the summer holiday.





At Herlufsholm teaching, leisure time activities, home, and boarding school are fused together. The atmosphere is characterized by openness and fair-mindedness among students and staff alike, and this is reflected in the teaching.
 
Key values at Herlufsholm are: Upbringing, tolerance, security, respect, personal identity, independence, and responsibility for own efforts and for socializing with others with respect for the school’s rules.
 
Herlufsholm is widely known for its traditions. We guard those, whilst making sure that they tune in with the development of the school and society in general.
 
Herlufsholm is a Danish school, and the administrative language is Danish. However, as a helping hand to English-speaking students and their parents, you may above find information on admission to the school

August 12
Prince Nikolai had Tuesday the first day of school Herlufsholm Næstved.

Monday was the first day of school for many students after the summer throughout the region. But Herlufsholm Næstved attracted special one student's attention on Tuesday when the school gardens opened on the first day of school - namely, Prince Nikolai, who is the son of Prince Joachim and Countess Alexandra.
 
He started in 10th grade at Herlufsholm and was like fellow pupils welcomed by President Klaus Eusebius Jakobsen, as seen in the video below:
