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

by sampokylmanen

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 🙂

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!
