CIS Nordhavn Campus
On Monday January 9, we welcomed our 1,100 students and staff, plus a lot of enthusiastic parents, to the first day of school. As a community, we're all incredibly excited to finally being re-united in these fabulous facilities! See photo from the all-school assembly below:
The local authorities are hard at work on the parking area now, and are finishing up this week (weather permitting).
If you get off at Nordhavn in the mornings, we recommend that you walk down Sundkrogsgade on the school-side of the road in the mornings. You can also walk back on this side in the afternoons, so as to avoid having to cross Sundkrogsgade down by the school, where, unfortunately, the traffic light and the zebra crossing have not yet been installed.
The traffic light was agreed to by the authorities at the end of November, and as the Director mentioned at the Town Hall, we weren't sure whether it would be up for the first day of school. We now know that it won't be ready for Monday, and we expect to have their building timeline soon.
In the afternoons, street crossing of Sundkrogsgade is required by bikers and those taking the bus. We have adult presence on the road in the morning and after dismissal at the end of the day and this will continue until the traffic light is up.

Thanks to the generosity of some of the major foundations in the Danish business world, the school has received donations in excess of DKK 350 million, allowing the foundation work of a brand new, state-of-the-art school right on the water in Nordhavn to begin in the spring of 2014.
Our Major Donors are
- The Moller Foundation (A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene Formaal)
- Novo Nordisk Fonden
- Villum Fonden
- Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S // D/S Orients Fond
- Hempel Fonden
- Augustinus Fonden
The opening of the new school, which will house 1200 students, is set for January 2017 and this will be a unique opportunity for new families, Danish as well as international, to join the multi-cultural CIS community.
