“Education is the most valuable we can give to you young people”.
This was the message Her Majesty Queen Sonja gave in front of a packed auditorium at the end of the Cultural Show.
“Coming here to UWC RCN is always so invigorating, experiencing so much talent and willingness to share”.
This is the tenth time Her Majesty has visited our College in her role as patron. She joined in with our conference on the theme of inclusion, attended by our students, staff and more than 100 visitors – a day for sharing ideas and good practice in and outside of the classroom. Her programme started with a visit to the exhibition made on inclusion, introduced by student Rodrigo Freitas and art teacher Hana LeCam. The grand finale on Thursday evening was the cultural show, put together by Dan Silfwerin and his team. Supper was made by our own students, supported by staff, in the form of an international matbord – a varied menu, beautifully presented in the Høegh Centre. Leon Muller, Kalyani Mohan, Amalie Rosendal and Petter Hallqvvist from our Student Council had the honor of sharing the meal with her Majesty. An uplifting experience for us all.
