Sports Extreme

Mathias Solberg Erland


My name is Mathias and I come from Trondheim, I went to SEA last year, and it is also at SEA that I will be a stipend!

I like speed and excitement, and like to challenge myself and learn new things! I am very fond of cycling, and at Bakketun I got to try downhill cycling which I loved! Furthermore, I have learned to surf, climb (and belay), kite and more! I'm in on most things, except for anything to do with ice bathing...

I am very much looking forward to this year, which will bring new challenges and new experiences! I hope I can help make this your year as good as mine! And together, I hope we can make a really close-knit and safe group!

I am very much looking forward to meeting you!

Greetings Mathias

Challenge Explore

Otilia Ryo-Bergstad

Hey Hey!,

I am Otilia Ryo-Bergstad, and I come from Geilo, the very winter paradise on earth. I started at Bakketun after Christmas this year, and now I'm going to stay for another year (because I didn't think half a year was enough). This time I'll be at Challange, but I'll soon be staying a bit at SEA as well.

If I had to describe myself in 3 words it would be; Versatile, thoughtful and curious. I'm a bit like a smoothie bowl, suitable for all kinds of activities, you can also find me in all kinds of colours. Of my many interests, climbing, yoga, snowboarding and running are something I love to do. And I never say no to a game of cards either. In addition, I love to travel and experience new things with other people.

For my part, Bakketun has been a very valuable and rewarding six months. I went to another folk high school earlier, but for my part, Bakketun showed me how safe and at the same time cool it is to go to folk high school. I am looking forward to filling more of my heart with good experiences at Bakketun FHS. And hopefully it will be yours too!!

I'm very curious about who you are, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. So just contact me on insta, whatever it may be.

See you soon!

Sanita Johnson


My name is Sanita and I come from Malm (Steinkjer). I went to Challenge Explore last year, and that's where I will be a scholarship holder this year. If you like to challenge yourself and are fond of outdoor life, I would recommend the line.

I love exciting things and traveling around the world. Activities are also something I like, I rarely say no to a strength session.

On the line we did, among other things, surfing, ice bathing, climbing and much more exciting things.

Going to Bakketun was the best choice I've made, and the best year. The community we get at school is the best.

I am so looking forward to meeting you and hope I can make your year as good as mine.

Kind regards, Sanita

Gaming Active

Marius Schickor


My name is Marius. I am 25 years old and come from Germany.

I enjoy being outdoors and appreciate the incredibly beautiful landscapes and nature in Norway. I also like playing video games with others.

I attended Bakketun from January 2024 to May 2024 and decided to apply for a scholarship for the coming year, and I have received an acceptance.

Therefore, I will be at Bakketun in the Gaming class and as a PR stipp next school year.

Best regards Marius Schickor.



Ole Hillestad


My name is Ole Hillestad and I come from Western Norway (where it always rains).

I am happy to be out in nature, climbing and gaming. I'm a rather calm person but always happy to challenge myself to new things 🙂

I will be a student at Gaming Aktiv until next year, the same line that I was a student on last year.

So of course I'm very fond of gaming, but I think it's important to find a good balance between gaming and physical activity. That's why Gaming Aktiv was the perfect line for me, since I got exactly that balance 🙂

I had a lot of fun at Bakketun last year and I'm really looking forward to another year there!

I can't wait to meet all of you new students, we'll talk at Bakketun!

Greetings Ole!

Stage Studio Tour

Victoria Hafsås Rasmussen


My name is Victoria Hafsås Rasmussen, and I come from a small place 30 minutes away from Trondheim. Last year I was a student at Stage Studies and I'm lucky enough to be a scholarship holder on the same line!

I'm insanely fond of musicals, but I'm also very fond of being active and trying new things. Last year I read books, crocheted or played volleyball, if I wasn't injured then. Just invite me to things, I'd love to join!

I was on the Scene Studio Tour last year and I would say that it was one of the best years of my life. I got to experience so many new things and challenge myself in a completely different way. I also met some of my best friends.

Just get in touch if you have any questions!

Greetings Victoria!

Albertine Helmine Johansen Sinkaberg


My name is Albertine Sinkaberg and I come from a tiny island up on the Helgeland coast (more specifically in Lurøy municipality). This year I will be a scholar at SST, which is the same program I followed last year, and it will be great fun <3

I really liked doing theater and everything related to acting, otherwise I often come up with new things to try (often without success, but it's been a try) and I'm really into karaoke so even if I don't find myself then you just have to listen for the crow (me🤭).

My year at Bakketun was great, there I learned so much about myself, those around me and made a group of friends that will last forever. This is going to be a great year together with you and I'm really looking forward to meeting you all and I can't wait to get to know you <3

If you're still looking for someone, please just get in touch (preferably on messenger or Instagram)

Arts and crafts

Idunn Lewin


My name is Idunn Lewin, and I come from Sandnes. In my spare time I like to do art, fool around with friends, and read.

Last year I was a student at Arts and Crafts, where I will be a student this year. This year I will also work with PR and be a bit involved in all the lines.

My year at Bakketun has been my best school year so far. I made new good friends, tested my limits, developed new skills, and got to know myself and others better

I can't wait to meet YOU, and am incredibly looking forward to creating at least as memorable a year together as I had last year. See you soon!

Hugs, Idunn<3

Emma Henriksen

Hello! My name is Emma, I am 19 years old and I come from a small island in northern Troms called Skjervøy. Last year I was a student at arts and crafts, and that's where I'm going to be this year, and I'm really looking forward to it!

My year at Bakketun has meant an incredible amount to me. I have made friends for life and have been challenged in many different ways, e.g. creative and social. Got to travel a bit, and found a lot of tricks otherwise in everyday life.

I had never tried silver, ceramics or sewing before, so it has been super educational and fun to master new things and I am looking forward to continuing with it this year. Otherwise, I like to crochet. read and go for walks. Also love good, long conversations 🙂

If you have any questions, or just want to have a chat, just get in touch <3

I look forward to meeting you, and being able to help make a great year for you! See you in August 😉
