Remarks

Our school is at the time being participating in a Comenius project with four other European school. We are also in contact with a school in Catalonia, Spain.

Our main problems are the lacking interest among the Finns in Sweden and a decreasing amount of pupils in our school. Also the teaching methods needs modernizing.
