International Parents Committee
The IPC is a highly valued group that exists to support the International Department. It has two important tasks:
1. To help support networking among parents, pupils and teachers
2. To help with ongoing school improvements via fundraising and awareness campaigns
All parents are automatically members of the IPC. The IPC has an active Facebook group which all new families in the International Department are invited. This group organises a number of events, and tries to help new families integrate into the Roskilde International Community.
Each class at Skt. Josef's School has one or two Contact Parents whose main task is to welcome the new families and initiate some class social arrangements to promote fun activities outside school hours. This gives the students the chance to meet in a different setting, and gives parents the chance to informally meet other parents. Some school facilities may be borrowed for such arrangements.
