The atmosphere is created together
Folk High School is the the sum of the people in the community.
From the moment you get up in the morning, you can feel life at school. You can hear voices out in the hallway or outside. Maybe a hair dryer from a room. When you walk into the dining room to have breakfast, you are greeted with happy but perhaps still a little bit tired looking smiles. The hair is still in the ’straight-out-of-bed’ style. If you are a morning person and are up early, you have time to go for a walk or make the bed. Maybe you fall into conversation at the breakfast table and end up getting to the morning assembly at the last minute. Others may have just gotten up and show up in their pajama’s. For morning assembly, the content can be anything from games, dance, and community singing to reflections from a teacher or student, a presentation from a subject or local tradition from one of the school's many international students and staff. The togetherness and the common start help to set the mood and set thoughts in motion, that become input for the rest of the day.
