It must be nearly summer because two Copenhagen International School have already graduated!

Passion for cars
Jorrit van der Baan (below right), 18, who is from the Netherlands, has just finished his IB Diploma and now intends to study at the Dutch Automotive Business School to fulfil his passion for cars.

“Being an international student for nearly eight years has really given me the opportunity to develop myself and learn from the open international community,” he enthuses.

“I want to thank CIS for giving me a great education, and I look forward to returning in the future, knowing I will have great memories of the school.”

All about the graphics
Also graduating is Danish-born Claudia Gesmar-Larsen (above left), who was raised abroad by Danish parents and speaks four languages fluently: Danish, English, French and German.

“Through my upbringing I’ve been inspired by art and design through the different cultures,” contends Claudia, who is a former pupil of the International School of Monaco and the Herlufsholm boarding school.

“So in the future I plan to become a graphic designer.”

CIS extends its Pre-K
In related news, CIS is extending its Pre-Kindergarten Programme to enable parents to keep their three and four-year-old children in afterschool care from 15:00 to 17:00 at no extra cost.

The service, which is available from August, represents a saving of 2,575 kroner per month for parents. Pre-kindergarten classes at CIS have a maximum of 16 students with a full-time teacher and a full-time assistant in each class.
