Meet our Students from Norway!

Our students from Norway just arrived in September and they are really enjoying their time at School District 42.  Read on to learn more about them!

Meet Kristine

Age: 17                                                                                                                                                 Kristine1-e1360795996609                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Grade: 12

School attending:  Garibaldi Secondary

Home: Tromsø, Norway

Favourite class:  I love theatre performance and dance because they are practical but I can be active and have lots of fun!

First impression of Maple Ridge:  it’s like what you see in American movies – the houses, the school, the fashion, and the lifestyle.

Favourite movie:  it’s hard to decide.  I like action, drama, and comedies – mostly movies with happy endings.

Favourite music:  I listen to the radio and like lots of different songs in the rock and pop genres.  I also like nice ballads and melodies.

Favourite activity or hobby:  soccer (I played for 4 years) but also hanging out with friends because we do things like shop, chat, and watch movies.  Oh, and of course I love acting!

Future career goal:  I love children and would like to work in a capacity in which I can help them – maybe a social worker.

Meet Herman

Age: 18                                                                                                                                                                                                               herman-e1350407267275

Grade:  12

School attending:  Garibaldi Secondary                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Home: Oslo, Norway.

Favourite class:  PhysEd!  I’ve been into PE since I was young.  I really wanna try lacrosse now that I am here in Canada because it is something I’ve never done before.

First impression of Maple Ridge:  it seems typical for North America – it’s kind of like living in a movie!  I mean there’s yellow school buses and the school hallways and sport fields are just like in the movies.  You can find Starbucks, Wendy’s, and KFC!

Favourite movie:  Avatar and The Last Samurai

Favourite music:  everything from classic rock to dubstep!

Favourite activity or hobby:  I like surfing because I feel free when riding the waves but I also like martial arts because it’s an old, primal, traditional form of art that allows me to be creative with my body and design my own skill use.

Future career goal:  I’m not a war lover but I want a military career in the special forces so that I can be proactive in helping people involved in conflict and making a difference in their lives.
