Our School Finland

Hietakummun ala-asteen koulu is an elementary school located in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. We have 310 enthusiastic and happy pupils who are from 7 to 12 years old. Our staff consists of dedicated 30 teachers (class teachers, special education class teachers, special educational teacher, language teachers and teachers of different religions) and other diligent staff (e.g. a curator, a school psychology, a school health nurse and school helpers). The core values in our school are joy, safety and responsibility in relation to learning, environment and each other. We also emphasize expression education (e.g. music, art & crafts) which can be seen in our activities as well as in our school interior.
