The receiving of gifts from the Faroese Ministry of Education has become a much appreciated ingredient of our annual Council Meeting. Claus Reistrup, who has been the Faroese representative on the Council since we were founded in 1995, becomes our own ‘Santa Claus’, as he brings books or other cultural products that are essential expressions of Faroese Culture. This year we received three copies of William Heinesen’s classical novel “The Lost Musicians” and a special photo book capturing the Northern Lights on the island.  This year’s gift also includes factual books on history, grammar, fairy tales and seasonal fishery outside Greenland – all made available for our students through the library and on current display at the entry to the Kantine.
