Alice Lisa Nyawere

School Counsellor and Learning Support

I was born and raised in Uganda in East Africa. I have lived in Norway for 11 years now.

It’s boundless joy and happiness for me to be part of GIS team to serve children, staff and parents. I love listening, talking and helping students learn social skills. My belief is to always encourage all students strive to achieve their goals.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in education from Inland University College in Lillehammer. I have also just completed a course on Restorative Practice and Special Needs from Australia. I have 7 years’ work experience as a social worker with Gjøvik Children’s Care Center for migrant children under the age of 15 coming to Norway without parents. I also worked at Steiner school as an assistant during my study training program. My last work place before joining GIS was the Office of Integration and Diversity Gjøvik branch.

My husband also comes from Uganda and we have 4 children, Gift, David, Debra and Deron. When am not at school, I like spending time together with my family, taking walks, cooking and inviting friends to dine with us.
