A longer school day, more PE and physical activity, better and more inclusive learning environments – these are some of the initiatives agreed upon by the Danish government in the 2014 reform of the primary and lower secondary school system. For NOVA5, specialists in homes and education facilities, the challenge was to transform old and outdated buildings already lacking in space to accommodate more pupils and facilitate the new and different school day. That, and dealing with scepticism from teachers, pupils and parents.
