NORWAY DAY May 2022 This year Norway Day was combined with the Viking Festival in Norsewood. After getting into their Scandi uniforms and a quick practice at school, the students walked across the road to Johanna's World. Here they sang the Norway national anthem while the flag was raised. The children then lead the parade down to the historic oak tree and then onto Matthews Park to the Viking Festival. The children performed a couple of Norwegian folk dances to an appreciative audience followed by a community dance where they got others to join in..
