Blogging ABOUT school # 01

So back in 2013, I was sitting in the classroom and wrote this post about blogging! Fast forward to 2017 and I was once again in a blogging workshop, although for a different course. This time, I thought I'd put my time to good use and update the blog that I started at the beginning... Continue Reading →

... what a travel student gets up to when they are at school in Finland. Check out Ullis' blog here. This also gives an idea of just a few of the great people that I study and work with 🙂  

Testing times…

Mr. 15 had a geography test this week. So all last week we recited and quizzed on the Finnish counties and their administrative centres along with some Nordic / Scandinavian landmarks. It was good for me to (finally) learn the names of all the counties and I was very impressed to realised we've visited all... Continue Reading →

Homework… of the best type

They tasted as good as they look! Mr. 13 had to recreate his home economics lesson from last week. I've happily signed the task completed paper. Even better, he's promised to make them again. This could become a regular thing.(This is the first time I've used the write a post option from the from page... Continue Reading →

Ajatellen suomi. Luen suomi. Puhun suomi. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Translated it means (I) Think Finnish, (I) Read Finnish, (I) Speak Finnish. This week I let myself down by not speaking Finnish. It was a small group presentation to the rest of the class. We'd been planning everything in Finnish, so it wasn't that I didn't know what we...

Feel free to follow the link and answer the question - or of course add your comments... Continue Reading →

Back to school

Huh! A big panic for ABSOLUTELY no reason. Please consider this an official thank you to your like and comments to my six word Saturday of August 4. I'll try to get back to them individually in the future. Yesterday I rolled up for official registration and managed to slightly confound the staff by producing... Continue Reading →

Thank you… 13 years later

Today's music is proudly sung by Stockholm's Gay Choir and What shall we do with a drunken sailor? I had occasion to sing this last Saturday night, along with 150 ship building professional and partners. The occasion was the 65th anniversary of LRK (Laivanrakentajain kerho) or Shipbuilders club. These men and women have all studied... Continue Reading →

Last lesson of the week

Taken while I was waiting to make a big announcement to Mr. 12's class. What big shoes they have! (I'm posting from my phone and haven't quite worked out all the editing commands, so if it looks odd... well I'll get to it when I get to it!)

Decisions, DecĂ­sions Part II

Today is brought you to by The Rolling Stones and You Can't Always Get What You Want... Just before Christmas last year I wrote about our big decision. Today at midday, it all came together. Each school applied to, and tested for; posted the list of accepted applicants on their front door. Physically, in list format,... Continue Reading →
