Centennial Celebration: Danish Students Visit VIMSIA

Students from Ranum Efterskole College in Denmark spent a day at Virgin Islands Montessori School & Peter Gruber International Academy on Tuesday Jan 17th.  The Danish students paired up with VI students to attend classes, become friends and to experience the curriculum at VIMSIA.

This visit was an effort to welcome the Danish students to St. Thomas as we celebrate our 100-year Centennial this spring.  The two schools are planning to embark on future visits, such as an annual student exchange program.

From the VIMSIA Dance Teacher, Ms. Helen Sidiropolous, "In our 11th grade Dance class, the visiting Danish students danced the Sevillanas from Spain, the Kalamatiano from Greece, the Bachata from the Dominican Republic and some hip hop dancehall fusion with the DP Dancers from the Virgin Islands!!  They took a true trip around the world."
