Parent-to-parent: The Buddy Programme and the parent communication platform

Dear new family,

On behalf of the Parent Teacher Association Committee, welcome to Copenhagen International School and Copenhagen. Our role is to welcome new families and help them to settle into life here. We know that moving to a new community can be daunting and we aim to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

Before you start school there are some ways in which we can help.

We offer a Buddy Programme, where we link incoming families with an existing Copenhagen International School family who can answer any queries you may have about the school and life in Copenhagen in general.

If you are interested in having a buddy family please fill out this form.
