Other activities at school

Action break

The school has an action break each day at. 12 – 12.25 pm. During this time the students can do sports at the sports hall or join other activities at school.

Peer counselling

Our school has a group of students who form a peer counselling team. Peer counsellors are students who have applied for the position with an application. The main goal for peer counselling is make the formation of friendships between students easier and creating positive school spirit.

 

Students’ union

The students are represented by the board of students’ union which consists of chairmen for each class (LuPu). The  members of the board are chosen through an election each autumn. Students’ union board makes it possible for students to be heard and influence decision making. The students who are chosen for students’ union board are also the chairmen for their classes.
