Family Profiles

The O’Regan Chivite Family (Brendan, Mayte, Sofia, Pablo, Andres)

“We are an Irish / Spanish family and have lived in Denmark for the last two and a half years. My husband works in the pharmaceutical industry.  Moving to Denmark, I would say was a little daunting at the start (sorting out housing, CPR numbers, schools etc.) but after the initial phase, including an exceptionally warm welcome from students, teachers and parents at school, life thankfully has become quite pleasant and relaxed.  Living close to the school also allows us to take advantage of the excellent and safe cycle paths, which the whole family greatly enjoys.”


The Ramzan Family (Amer, Saira, Xavier and Maha)

“We are a Danish/Pakistani family settled in Denmark. We chose NIS for our children because, having grown up in an International environment myself, I know firsthand the advantages of having an international education. Growing up among classmates from different corners of the world imparts a better understanding and appreciation of other cultures. NIS provides a fun, educative and nurturing environment for its students. There is a close bond among the small International Community at school. The Parents Association, teachers and administration collaborate closely to make learning fun. Teachers work diligently to ensure high academic and extracurricular performance by all students. My children just love going to school everyday!” 


 The Völkers Family (Emile, Mariska, Anne-Sophie, 6 and Daniël, 2) 

“We are from the Netherlands and have lived in Rungsted Kyst, by the sea, since spring 2015. Emile, my husband, works for the Dutch construction company Mobilis/TBI. We love Rungsted Kyst, because of the space, the beautiful surroundings (proximity to the sea and forest) and also because it is perfect for travel – only 4 km to school and 25 km to the centre of Copenhagen. Although we can bike, we prefer taking the car to school. Our daughter, Anne-Sophie, loves NIS because she has friends from all over the world and because of the nice after school activities, especially the sports club! I study Danish during the day and am an active member of the school PTA.”
