Kauniala War Invalid Christmas Party
On the 29 of November, the ninth grade had the privilege to visit the war veterans at Kauniala and host a christmas performance for them. Few grade 4 students accompanied too and danced and sang for the veterans.
Saara and Fiona from 9a got the chance to meet a war veteran aged 95 named Antti. You wouldn’t have believed that he was already 95 years old because of his cheery personality and great sense of humor. We got to chat with him about his experiences during the war as well as about his personal life. During our visit, we realized how much the veterans appreciate even the smallest things such as talking with them. We got a new perspective on life’s tough tribulations. How it is a privilege for us to live in an independent country and to appreciate what the previous generations have done for us. We will forever cherish this experience with Antti, and how he insisted on taking photos with us so that he can remember us.
