More than 1,000 students may now move into Lindbjergskolen

On Monday, 6 January 2020, Lindbjergskolen in Hammerum-Gjellerup was officially opened by Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen. The new school accommodates more than 1,000 students, and it is one of Denmark’s first 24-7 schools where local sports and recreational activities are integral elements.

More than 1,000 students, staff and teachers were gathered yesterday to mark the official opening of Hammerum’s new Lindbjerg School.

Lindbjerg School is one of Denmark’s biggest 24-7 schools and incorporates movement, play and learning into the conceptual design both indoors and outdoors. The new school is built next to Hammerum’s existing sports halls. This means that not only students and staff will benefit from the new school. Linking Lindbjerg School to existing sports and recreational activities will make it the town’s new focal point for activity both day and evening.

The school’s workshops and auditoriums can be used for evening classes, the outdoor playgrounds and activity areas are accessible to the whole town, and both school and recreational users will benefit from the new, state-of-the-art sports facilities housed by the new sports and school building complex.
