Tolerance is a life-skill

by Jazzy

Tolerance is something that everyone should know about. It is respecting, accepting, but first of all it is diversity. And our school is very much teaching us precious life-skills like tolerance. For instance we spent Day of Tolerance on last Thursday (21.3.). It was a five hours long day with plenty of organized programs. The main theme of the day was (of course) tolerance and racism.

Our school is pretty big – approx. 500 students, so it was lots of sweating for the students and teachers who were organizing the day. There was a Racism Path where the student were put into groups to think about everyday-racism that is there but nobody ever notices. As a little helper student on Racism Path, I can tell that the students really were thinking about the little bad things that we can make better. This Racism Path was a great reminder for all of us I think. 🙂

We were also honored to have two special guests to keep speeches; a man from Unicef, and congressman, Jani Toivola, from the parliament. The Unicef presentation was great – sometimes we don’t remember how well things are in Finland.  Little reminders like these make us be more grateful for what we have. 🙂

And I must say that Jani Toivola was just super inspiring with his speech!  That one hour just flew! The audience was going woooh already in the beginning before he even started! I think it was because of the strong contact he made with us. Jani Toivola is not only a congressman but also an actor and very known in Finland. And the funny thing is that he studied in our school back in 90’s. So yay!  ;)))

This lovely day didn’t end there  – there was also a little play that some students were acting in. And the theme was once again, tolerance. So it was a nice and funny thing to end our day.

Happy Schooling! 🙂

Day of tolerance in our school! :)

by ingamau

On last week’s Thursday, we had a Day of Tolerance in our school. We didn’t have any normal lesson because we had all kinda of different activities that was arranged to us. We have every year one day like this in our school :). We talked about different cultures and racism. Jani Toivola also kept a speech in our school. He’s a man that almost everyone knows, like a little celebrity and he’s also a member of parliament. The speech was VERY good and he told us about his own experiences about racism, because his skin color is black. There was also a little “fashion show” where was introduced different countries  national costumes. Then we walked around the school and there was games and thing to do which was connected to day of tolerance. The whole day was really nice and it’s good that our school organize things like this! 🙂

Day of tolerance

by petsku1337

We had a special day in our school about tolerance. We had different tasks to do with our class. We were told about people that can’t live as we do. People can’t go to school because it’s too expensive or even have clean food and water. It’s unbelievable that how much people there are suffering and most of us don’t do anything to help them. We had 2 guests at our school talking about those things. It was a intreresting and instructive day. There are many ways to help families around the poor countries. Donating just a little bit of money will help alot in their country.

Our school had a ”Day of Tolerance” last week. For me, it was pretty much just preparing the musical theater show i was a part of. We failed everything lol. 

A political activist and former entrepreneur Jani Toivola visited our school too.

After all it was cool because we had a short and easy day 🙂

Day of tolerance

by miimuska

Last Thursday we had this special day, day of tolerance. I saw amazing fashion and dance shows! The idea of fashion show was really good. There were clothes from different countries like Russia, Estonia, Thailand and Vietnam. After that one man came here to tell us about how badly things are in poor countries in Africa. It really made me think about how well things are here in Finland. Anyway before the end of the day me and my musical theatre group we showed our play it’s called ”Free your mind” and it tells something about tolerance.

The day of tolerance

by valtsusworlds

We had a great day in school! It was exciting and i would like to have more  days like this. The day started in auditorium were i presented the presentation of my journey in France. I was nervous but i think i did okay job with the presentation. The day continued with a man who told us about Unicef and how we could make the world a better place. After that we had a racism track which was instructive. Then we had lunch and after that we had show performed by the musical Theater course. The day was over after the show.

Thanks for reading!
