Another glimpse on schools in Finland

Last year I introduced ‘the most modern school in Finland‘. However, the variety of schools is broad so it might be interesting to check out another kind of a school –
one I deem to represent more generic school environment in Finland. Let’s go!

Lobby featuring lockers. Nothing too fancy 🙂
‘Welcome’ in various languages. Internationality is valued here (at least it’s prominent).
Second floor is equipped with a ping-pong table to encourage activity during recesses. The picture doesn’t tell, but it seemed very popular.
Art (not sure if it’s student-made). Plus pictures of a few old Finnish presidents. Modern art meets classic portraits?
Recycling point for bottles and cans (very common to recycle those in Finland). Also bins for carton and energy waste.
No smartboards etc. found here. This school isn’t on the edge of the newest digital trends (should it be is another question) 🙂
Teacher’s table. Document camera is a very common instrument in Finnish schools. It’s practical when displaying paper images and written texts to the whole class.
