The municipality of Aalborg has a population of 203,448 making it the third most populous municipality in the country after Copenhagen and Ă…rhus. The earliest settlements date back to around AD 700.

School life at Gistrup Skole Gistrup Skole is a public school, fully financed by the Municipality of Aalborg. Gistrup is in Northern part of Denmark, on the peninsula of Jutland. The school is situated South East of the regional center Aalborg, and functions as a suburb to Aalborg. The town has 3.573 inhabitants. The housing is mostly single family homes. The countryside around Gistrup is mostly fields and wooded hills, with patches of urban development.


Gistrup Skole aims to create able citizens, who can function and participate in an ever changing world. Learning and versatile personal development are central values for Gistrup Skole. The students are organized into three departments.

Primary School, classes 1, 2, 3. Age of pupils 7 – 10 years old. Middle School, classes 4, 5 ,6. Age of pupils 11- 13 years old. Secondary School, classes 7, 8, 9. Age of pupils 14-16 years old.

Each department has three years of pupils. Every year has a core team of teachers, who follow the pupils for three years. These teacher teams work with a certain degree of autonomy. The teacher teams coordinate teaching and activities in regular meetings on departmental level.


Each class of pupils has around 25 pupils. The maximum number of pupils in each class is 28. The staff as a whole consists of 58% women and 42% men. Gistrup Skole has an after-school institution called “DUS”. The teachers there are “recreation centre teachers” The “DUS” is financed in part by the families, which use it, and the Municipality. The “DUS” is a natural and integrated part of the school. The “DUS” uses the main school buildings and shares the resources of the school. The “DUS” is not a place for traditional teaching, but a place where personal development, social skills, well-being and nature are thought into the activities. The recreation center teachers take part in some of the lessons in Primary School. The school management consists of a management team and the School Board. The management team consists of the Headmaster, the Deputy Headmaster and the “DUS” manager.The School Board consists of elected parent representatives, staff representatives and the headmaster. Gistrup Skole aims to qualify the working and learning environment by having a decentralized structure, where planning and academic development is in the hands of the three departments, the


Learning Center (library), and the school subject faculties. The School management and the School Board see it as a basic task to create a framework through clear principles to support this decentralized structure.

The principles are reviewed on a regular basis to keep Gistrup Skole in good working order. Gistrup Skole is active in securing pupil and parent democracy. Pupils are involved where it is relevant. There is a Pupil Council, which is heard on various issues. Parents are involved through parent groups in each class. Parents have meetings twice a year with some of the relevant teachers to hear of their child’s status. In addition to this teachers and parents communicate through an internal school mail service on news and other relevant issues.

Blarney Woollen Mills Built in 1823, Blarney Woollen Mills was originally known as Mahony's Mills. It was a water powered mill, producing mainly tweeds and woollens. After closing in the early 1970s, the mills were re-invented by local entrepreneur Christy Kelleher as a gift store servicing tourists visiting the village.


Hurling is a popular sport in cork. This is a game where 15 players with a hurley and a sliotar (small ball) try and score goals and points by hitting the ball in between the goal posts.
