Mastersmith Kirsi Vahtera visited Tammerkoski upper secondary school to tell the students about her rare occupation. Becoming a smith was not what she initially started studying, but she became interested in forging metal and changed careers. She graduated from Ikaalinen college, which we also visited during the teaching and learning activity event in Tampere in 2016.

On Thursday September 1st a famous Finnish dance teacher, choreographer, entrepreneur and TV-host Marco Bjurström visited us here at Sampola.
He was interviewed by two of our students, and the questions got very thorough answers.
Talkative Marco made jokes and got everyone to rise from their seats and pat their tummies. He gave good life advice, like ‘take it easy and do what you like’. He has worked at many different jobs in his life, for example, in addition to being a dance teacher, he was a news anchor on TV. He has produced and directed most musicals in Finland, and at the moment he´s working on an opera that will get its premiere next year.
Marco also told us his life story and how he had made it this far, and how he became an entrepreneur. He even shed a few tears while reminiscing.
Mr Bjurström highlighted the fact that the most important thing in our lives is creating a fun atmosphere. He himself creates a relaxed mood at his dance classes by making the students laugh at themselves. He also gave us some food for thought when he said that “Remember that you need to get along with yourself and like yourself, as that is the person with whom you will wake up every single morning.”
Last Wednesday, 11th May, the Head and the Italian coordinator handed out the Charity Concert donation check to Vicenza Unicef Chairwoman Ms Getrevi.
It was worth 567 euros.
We are supporting a Unicef project in Bangladesh for “safe swimming” as last year 18,000 children died after flooding because of their incapability to swim!
Ms Getrevi is the one signing for acceptation!
A video about safe swimming is also avaliable!
