School wel­comes Nor­we­gian heads

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

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.’

Peter Bain, Nor­we­gian head teach­ers Wenche Rud­shaug Kavali and Olav Wen­nemo, and pupils from Oban High School.
