    Denmark's oldest and smallest school is just a few steps away from Kommandørgaarden. Between the years 1784 and 1874, up to 40 students were taught here at times. Instruction was always given by a former commanding officer who also had to be paid by the parents. He received this salary not only in the form of money but also in kind. In today's world with a supermarket around almost every corner, this type of remuneration does not seem very attractive. In the years of the Kommandøre, however, food was an extremely valuable commodity because all goods that did not exist on Rømø itself had to be laboriously brought here from the mainland. And the hardest time was always winter with a real struggle for survival. There was also an additional type of remuneration for the teacher in the form of a daily warm lunch in turn with the parents of the students.
    The students themselves had to take care of the cleanliness of the classroom and, as was common at the time, that was the task of the girls. The boys, on the other hand, had to make sure that there was always enough firewood for the cast iron stove. Of course, this had to be brought from home because wood was also a very valuable and expensive commodity.
