At Kauniala Hospital yesterday at the annual Christmas celebration for military attaches. The President of Finland Sauli Niinistö expressed his gratitude to the war invalids and veterans who participated in WWII. The Chairman of the Board Vesa Ekroos thanked The English School for its decades of service to the hospital.
In other words, THANK YOU ninth graders past and present for your charitable endeavors and the wonderful Christmas parties you have organized, often with performances by first and fourth graders! A tradition started by the Sisters in the fifties.
The UN Assistant Secretary-General for Strategic Cooordination Mr Hochschild visited us today along with Mr Puukki, Kauppinen and Sareva from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Mr Paananen (alumnus from Engs!) from the Mayor’s Office in Espoo. Ms Mervi Pänkäläinen, Mightifier, facilitated the visit. A grand day for 6th grade and us bystanders.
