Amazing trip to Uppsala!

by miimuska

So I’m involved in this Comenius project, so we flew to Uppsala to see the others students who are also involved in this project. On 21, April we flew to Uppsala. The flight took only 45 min so it was quite fast 😀 We went to the hostel and then we left to the city tour. There one of the swedish teacher’s husband told us something about Uppsala. It was really interesting and we saw really beautiful cathedral and castle.

Next day we went to school and there we introduced our schools and countries.(Then we just studied). On Tuesday we went to school and we tested diffent kind of waters so we studied again haha 😀 but it was fun!

On Wednesday we had this trip day and we went to Stockholm. There we went to open air museum 😀 after that we just sat in the bus and the guide told us something about Stockholm. And some of us saw Justin Bieber when he were coming out of the gallery! Anyway we ate lunch at the famous Hard rock cafe! It was pretty cool.

On Thursday we studied little again and we had spare time too. Me and my friends Argjira, Sandra, Nicole( and Bailey and Adam they are from England) we went shopping(of course). In the evening we played football 😀

I really had amazing week in Uppsala and I met some really cool people. I miss them so much..

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! 🙂

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!

tolerance

by jjooeell97

If all do and be in the same way their it’s very boring. diversity is good thing but if you are kind of like you its wrong. everyone should get to be themselves.

“Out. NOW!”

by Jazzy

I have a very very lovely school! There are SO many interesting activities for us students to do to make our school more comfy. One very great example of these activities is EXIT -students! I know, sounds weird… but let me explain.

In our school we have to go out for a 15 mins long break after eeevery lesson (exp. after lunch break). And as many might already know, Finland’s weather isn’t the best after summer – less sunlight and more of grey clouds. So nobody wants to go out and get their hair frizzy… simple as that. And there has always been a “war” between we students and teachers under this topic. UNTIL students found a way to “please” teachers and be okay themselves too. That’s why we have a group of students called EXIT -students who make sure we go out between lessons and our dear teachers get to take their coffee break. Great, huh?

Our school got the idea from another junior high school of Porvoo in Student’s Goverment -meetings couple years ago. And then another group of students (called ‘trust’ students) took this mission and developed the idea. And of course, in cooperation with teachers. 😉

There are many good points in being an EXIT-student. But not everybody gets to be one. Because you have to have no detention from latest period.

1) You don’t need to go out when it’s your turn to be control others.

2) You can give detention to those bad girls and boys who break the rules and don’t go out.

3) You get to take your revenge of your class mates who (probably) annoy you sometimes.

4) You get wear a skirt like this:

I recommend this activity for schools alll around the world with break problems. 😀

Taking photos in our school.

by mimiia

Hello everybody! Last English Club lesson we took photos of our school. I took photos with my friends Marika and Miia T. I used my phone camera. Next week we will go by bus to center and take a lot of pictures, then I will take my good camera with me. Sometimes I will want to go somewhere little bit farther 🙂

Our school is a big and there are so many class room. Almost everybody at 9th grade come to school by moped or scooter or microcar.  I usually come to school with my friend’s scooter ride.

OMNOM

by sampokylmanen

Listening to OMNOM, English Club lesson in da computer room….. it’s pretty chill.

Guess i’ll go home soon ’cause i can barely breathe ’cause of my throat ache.

Every breath i take is like Darth Vader speaking, y’know?

But yeah, i think i said what i wanted to say. Or maybe i didn’t even want to post a post like this.

In fact, i didn’t want to post anything much. I just thought i’d make my teacher proud of me.

Sports day

by petsku1337

We had a sports day yesterday ( November 4th, 2012 ). The day started with a moped and bicycle trick track.  Few students took part in it. It was fun to watch and they all did well.  After that we walked and walked for a long time through the forest and over the hills. It was a long walk and just when i felt like i couldn’t go any further we finally arrived to our destination. We had a few tasks to do while we were there, such as rope pulling, darts, quiots and some other traditional games. It was a fun day overall.
