In a world where interconnectedness and cultural understanding are increasingly vital, educational institutions play a crucial role in fostering global communication. Recently, an interesting international event held at Savon ammattiopisto exemplified this commitment to providing students and teachers with opportunities for internationalization within the school community.

Students from a diverse range of nationalities, including Syria, Ukraine, Finland, Russia, Afghanistan, and Iraq came together to participate in this event and embrace diversity. Moreover, teachers and counselors from different fields of study took part in this event.

The event's organizers ensured inclusivity by conducting activities in both Finnish and English, allowing all participants to engage and communicate comfortably. This linguistic diversity not only facilitated interaction but also emphasized the importance of multilingualism in a global context.

One of the event's highlights was the diverse array of activities offered to participants. From engaging in games that transcended language barriers to expressing themselves through pantomime, handicrafts, and singing, students had opportunities to communicate and learn from one another.

 One of the best parts was the food! Students cooked dishes and desserts from their own countries, giving everyone a taste of different cultures. It was a great way to learn about food from other countries and try new flavors.

Moreover, the event provided a platform for students to express their cultural identity through language. Each participant wrote a sentence in their native tongue, further enriching the linguistic tapestry of the gathering and highlighting the diversity of the school community.

Beyond just having fun, the event was also about understanding and respecting each other's cultures. By bringing students from different backgrounds together, it helped everyone learn from each other and work together. It showed how important it is to celebrate our differences and find common ground.

In conclusion, the international event at Savon ammattiopisto was a fantastic opportunity for students and teachers to learn from each other and become more connected with each other. It showed how important it is for schools to embrace diversity and create a welcoming environment for everyone.

The International event was organized by Globe@Home -project and Maahanmuuttaja kotoa ammattilaiseksi (MaKo)-project. Both the projects are co-funded by the European Union.

Aivojen palautuminen kiireisen arjen keskellä

Nykypäivänä suuri osa tehtävästä työstä on aivotyötä. Aivotyö kuormittaa jaksamistamme, joten tarvitsemme sen vastapainoksi palautumista vapaa-ajalla, mutta myös työpäivän aikana. ”Aivotyö sujuvaksi Sakkyssa” -hanke kutsui aivotutkija, psykologian tohtori Mona Moisalan kertomaan meille, kuinka voimme vähentää aivotyöstä tulevaa kuormitusta sekä palautumaan paremmin.
