Our Prime Minister has just held a press conference:

If the Danish figures continue to look good the Danish kindergartens and the 0.-5. grade (classes) in schools will open on 15. April.
6.-9. grade (classes) in our schools will continue to be closed and the pupils will continue homeschooling until at least 10. May.

So that means if the Danish figures continue to look fine:
Then Vincent and Josephine will start school on 15. April.
Christian and Isabella must continue with home schooling until at least 10. May.

Everything else in Denmark (except workers with critical functions) remains closed until 10. May.

We must gather a maximum of 10 people.

No major meetings of people are allowed until the end of August.

* I’m not sure we will see much to the Queen and Crown Prince couple officially as we are not allowed to gather more than 10 people together in public until at least 10. May.

It must really raise the spirits of the Danes to know there is light at the end of the tunnel with an organised beginning to (hopefully) return to normal.

You are absolutely right, nothing like a date to galvanise one's spirits in these trying times.

So happy for my Danish friends, I pray that this downward trend continues and things start to look upward. Children can start to enjoy school, I know mine are so ready to return... but they probably wont this school year.

Thanks for the update Roskilde. It still does seem a bit strange that Josephine and Vincent's age group can attend school but the older children are still obliged to be homeschooled. I guess Denmark is gradually easing everyone back into normal life? They seem to have had pretty efficient lockdown measures as I heard the cases were more contained in Denmark so I guess the government deemed it safe enough.

I assume it would be because younger children need someone to look after them 24/7 and in my experience, its harder to teach younger children online etc, whereas older children can be more self sufficient at home, look after themselves a bit and engage better online.

And not least because the younger ones are going stir-crazy (and so are their parents!)
As long as the teenagers have their phones, they can cope.
I know, I'm looking at one, happily absorbed with her phone right now.

I wonder whether it also I because of health reasons. Children seem least affected by the virus, so that's probably why some countries will first decide to have children up to the age of 12 return to school before they also have their teenagers return to school.

Also, before parents can return to work daycares, kindergartens and primary schools have to open. You can hardly leave a 5-year-old alone at home while you go to work.
+it's better if a smaller number of children starts at first and then gradually adding others

I suspect that the PTB want to ease back into "normal" life. I think if given the choice between younger kids versus older kids, the older kids are considered most suitable to continue to be educated online.

CP Frederik today:


"A big help to all of us landed early this morning from a cloudless sky at Copenhagen Airport.
I was invited to attend the landing of the world's largest cargo aircraft, where the cargo of 1,000,000 face masks and 170,000 protective suits and other protective equipment will be a major help to the home care system in the coming years in the fight against COVID-19.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to all involved who have made flights with protective equipment from China possible."

Thanks, Eya.

These three planes were the first of 24 (seriously huge) planes bringing this relief-aid from China to DK.
The logistic has been organized and paid for by Mærsk shipping.

Each plane carry masks enough to cover the (medically responsible) need for masks in the Copenhagen area for one week.

The number of masks and other protective equipment had reached a critical level here in DK.

All very good points! I hadn't thought about younger children needing more management - which, as a pre-school teacher in normal times, I can totally understand! A class of 6 can seem like it's double the size sometimes. I would presume the decision has more to do with practicality since COVID has been proven not to discriminate against age, sadly, as we have had some young children and teenagers lose their lives to the disease here in the UK. They are rarer cases, however, but are unfortunately still there.

We here in Ontario have also received Chinese masks to help critical shortages : however buyer beware

a similar situation has also happened to us

Vincent and Josephine have almost certainly started in school again today as their school has reopened.
However Isabella and Christian are not to return to school yet. They will still be taught online.

The Danish return to school got on the British news here too! Spain is also starting to ease back into normal life gradually, so perhaps we'll also see Leonor and Sofia return to school in the next couple of weeks.

We are still on Stage 4 Lockdown but our PM gave us a brief of the conditions of Stage 3 for when we are ready. So far the schooling seems to be in line with Denmark except there is no compulsion to send your kids back to school.

Frederik gave an interview of his time during the frogman training. Nice interview
https://issuu.com/soldaten/docs/3156...web/s/10436438
"After the student school, I could feel that I was given a much greater stress threshold, a better resilience and ability to maintain the overview wherever it may be," the Crown Prince says of the tools he still uses to this day.*

Nice photos

Thanks, Polyesco.

That's a magazine for conscripts. And since the vast majority of conscripts here in DK are volunteers (more than 90 %) they will no doubt read it with a positive attitude.
