Birralee International School and Kindergarten Trondheim
Welcome to Birralee! Our school and kindergarten provide an English-speaking education for children aged 4-16 living in Trondheim, central Norway.
The Australian founder gave the school the name ‘Birralee’ meaning a ‘safe place for children’ – we do our best to provide a stimulating and secure learning environment in which we value each child as an individual. The school and kindergarten are owned by a non-profit making foundation.
Our curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum, an internationally recognised high quality curriculum used in many international and English speaking schools throughout the world. The curriculum has been modified to suit the needs of international students and also to meet the requirements of the Norwegian National Curriculum.
The curriculum is approved by the Norwegian Department of Education and Research. Our students participate in the Norway’s National tests and have the possibility to take IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams.
The school is approved as a University of Cambridge exam centre and is a member of the European Council of International Schools.
If you are thinking of coming to Trondheim and have children within our age range, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be pleased to hear from you and to welcome you to our ‘safe place for children’.

11:00 – 14:00 Festivities on the playground (Rec – Y11)
Organized by the Parents’ Committee. After the parade on Friday there will be an open café (selling cakes, hotdogs, ice cream and candy floss) on the Playground from 11:00 until 14:00. There will also be lots of games for the children! Every family is asked to bring a cake for the cafe (or perhaps a savoury veggie/halal dish as an alternative to the hotdogs).
Help needed! The Parents’ Committee would love parents of kids in YR-Y5 to help out an hour (or even half an hour) each with the games. Parents of Y6-Y8 children would be our personal heroes if they are able to man the cafe for a spell each. Middle school mums and dads would be of great help if they lend their talents setting up and decorating on the night before. In addition we are hoping everyone left at 14:00 will lend a hand cleaning up. Many hands make light work! :-) To sign up (first come, first served), please contact Linda (Y9 rep) on email@example.com or 95745436 ASAP :D
