Friendship Families 

 The purpose of friendship families is to: 

  • Promote the integration of non-native families and their children in Laugarnesskóli and the broader community reducing the likelihood of isolation.
  • Develop a school atmosphere based on mutual respect, empathy and cooperation between the many cultures and ethnicities within the school community.
  • Develop an mutually beneficial relationship between the Icelandic and non-native families based on support, respect and understanding.

 

Friendship families- Implementation

  • Non-native and Icelandic families within the same class/grade should seek to strengthen existing bonds or forge new bonds between children with the support of class teachers and class representatives.

 The Icelandic family should seek to: 

  • Keep the non-native family informed about extra-curricular activities, maybe offering to pick them up and accompany them to certain events.
  • Explain to the non-native family which leisure and sports are available and help them apply when necessary. Help non-native families apply for discounts using the Fristudakort and teach them how to use www.reykjavík.is if necessary.
  • Invite the child/children home occasionally.
  • Offer assistance with reading in Icelandic.  
  •  Invite the non-native family for coffee and a chat.
  • Offer to help translating emails and information from the school and if necessary help replying.
  • Above all initiate positive communication and promote the feeling of belonging in the non-native family. 

 The non-native family should seek to: 

  •  Share cultural differences, and reciprocate invitations inviting the Icelandic family for tea and a chat.
  • Take responsibility and seek help when they are not able to understand or need additional advice or support.
