Character building also plays a part, and principal Sten Muff explains how: “It is about the students and their understanding of the world, their morals and selfperception. It is important that they develop to become complete individuals with inner discipline, resourcefulness and selfcontrol. We want them to become robust.” This is a useful quality for dealing with the challenges students are presented with in learning as well as in life outside of school. “We are interested in the idea of the larger community. It is about being with others and creating something together,” says Muff.
