“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. 😀
