School welcomes Norwegian heads
Norwegian head teachers made a second visit to Oban High School last week as part of an international exchange programme.
The schools share best practices and explore opportunities for 16-year-olds.
Wenche Rudshaug Kavali and Olav Wennemo were welcomed to the school by Oban head teacher Peter Bain, councillors Kieron Green and Yvonne McNeilly, and the executive director of community services, Douglas Hendry.
Mr Bain said: ‘Mailand videregående skole was researching the opportunities available to young people seeking work or further education in Scottish schools, and got in touch with us last year to see if they could form an exchange programme.
‘They visited us last October and, following a highly successful and positive trip, a project plan was established between us which allows teachers in both countries to share examples of good practice linked to Developing the Young Workforce.
‘I’m delighted that our Norwegian visitors are here with us this week to look at how we develop leadership at all levels, in particular how we are developing pupils as young leaders.’
