LOST & FOUND. At the end of last term, we had many bin bags full of top-quality but unnamed clothes in the Lost & Found. All lost items which had been correctly named did find their rightful owners, so please do make sure your child’s clothes are named. We thank OISPA for taking care of the Lost & Found clothes and raising money by selling them out.

STRENGTH OF THE MONTH. The Strength of the Month in January is Social Intelligence (sosiaalinen älykkyys). We would like families to pay attention to and discuss the following at home:

  • Do I introduce myself to new people?
  • Do I respond to greetings and questions addressed at me?
  • Do I listen to the one who speaks? Do I let them speak?
  • Do I look at people when talking to them?
  • Do my views get taken into account in discussion?
  • Do I always say the words Thank you, Sorry and Please?
