Education[edit]

In the early 1990s, the town of Hemmet had a school, but it was abolished since it was deemed too small. Afterwards, pupils from Hemmet had to attend the private Christian school in Sønder Vium, 4 km east of Hemmet or the public school 5 km south of Hemmet located in Nørre Bork, where the "Bork Havn Musikfestival" is staged. In Hemmet there is a kindergarten, holding around 100 pupils
