We have celebrated our first short-term exchange of groups of pupils in Finland from December 9 to 13, 2019
Hosted by Aarnivalkea School, the students have been able to meet and get to know each other by little games in English, to present their country then the tale they studied and to choose the tales which they wanted to continue working on.
In addition to that, during two afternoons we all had the chance to visit Finland’s capital Helsinki. Everyone enjoyed the guided tour at the Natural History museum of Finland as well as the ferry and the visit to the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress.
We also had time to celebrate Christmas at the annual Christmas Party of Aarnivalkea school. The first experience of the change was unforgettable and everyone is looking forward to the next meeting in Romania in March.
