Ingen skole i dag.... No school today

Der er ingen lærer hos gymnasiet idag. Der er ingen elever hos gymnasiet idag. Men hvorfor?! Fordi i dag er Operations Dagsværk!

There are no teachers at work at the Gymnasium today. There are no students in classes at the Gymnasium today. But why? Because today is Operations Dagsværk (literal translation is "Day´s work")

http://www.od.dk/
(Der er dansk OG engelsk sider! /There are Danish AND English pages!)


Operations Dagsværk er en elevs organisation som arbejder sammen med elever overalt i Danmark på en projekt som hjælpe fattige børn i verden. Hvert år har OD et nyt område i verden som danske elever arbejde at hjælpe.

Operations Dagsværk is a student-led organization which works together with young people all over Denmark on a project that helps the world´s poorest children. Each year OD has a new target area in the world that the students are working to help.


Gymnasiet i Danmark holder ikke klasser i dag så elever har tid for at gå og arbjeder sammen på dette års projekt... beskytter unge i Zimbabwe mod politisk misbrug. Du kan læse mere her : http://www.od.dk/projekt/zimbabwe


The gymnasiums in Denmark are not having classes today so that our students have the time to go out and work together on this year´s project...protecting the youth of Zimbabwe from political abuse. You can read more about the project here:

Siden vi har ikke klasser i dag, tog alle lærer fra Herning Gymnasium til Vingsted i aftes for vores egen dag sammen med hinanden idag.

Since we do not have classes today, all the teaching staff from Herning Gymnasium got on a bus and went to Vingsted last night for our own day together today.

OD er et nyt ting til mig og jeg ved ikke så meget om det så jeg er meget spændt for at komme tilbage på skolen på torsdag og hører fra mine elever om deres dag!
OD is such a new thing to me and I do not know much about it, so I am really excited to come back to school on Thursday and hear from my students about their day!

It's a great idea and teaches kids to care about other kids in other parts of the world by using their time to work and earn money for these kids...Enjoy your day off!!

Kelli, Thanks for sharing what's happening with your school. I read the link.. this is such a great project for students to participate in. Should be something American students participate in... or students all over the world.

Raising funds is such a cool idea - and giving the students a day off to do so. Brilliant!
