Suomi100 Morning Opening
This Tuesday we had our second Suomi100 Morning Opening at Mäntytie. It was hosted by 2nd graders and the theme was Aleksis Kivi. We got to learn a little bit about Kivi and hear his poem Oravan Laulu. Also, we saw some still photos about his most famous book 7 brothers, taken by the 2nd grade.
Sports' Day Celebration
Amanda Kotaja, gold medalist in World Para Athletics Championship came to our school's Sports' Day Celebration. Her legs don't work at all. She taught us to not give up and to believe in yourself. Amanda didn't think that sitting in a wheelchair is a sad thing. She was really motivated, brave and proud of sitting in a wheelchair. It was interesting to get to know how she does daily things without using legs. We got a lot of inspiration from Amanda and there was a lot of interesting topics to think about.
