We were really excited about the trip to Malaga. Involved in Erasmus was me Elli, Iida, Maxu, Werner and three teachers Heini, Tiina and Aki. Our flight was long, about four hours. We were a little nervous about going to the host families, but then we realized there was nothing to be nervous about. They were really hospitable and responsive to us. 

First day in Malaga was just getting know to the other students. In the beginning everybody were a little bit shy, but later we started to talk with everyone. We also noticed that Spanish school was truly different from Finnish school. The school building, lunch break, studying, well almost everything.

We liked the beach activities and the trip to Malaga city was unforgettable. There were really beautiful buildings. It was confusing, that it was warm In September and in October, because in Finland its cold in that time. The week was going by so fast. We also hanged out with them in time after school and it was really fun😀.

We were sad when we I had to leave. The trip was magnificent experience. 

ERASMUS+ OVERCOME

visit to Slovenia 2020

On Sunday, 2nd of February, we went on an exchange trip to Slovenia. There were four of us from Finland, Emil, Leo, Luukas and Iida. The exchange school was located in Race, Fram. Race was located near the town of Maribor. 

We got to know many Slovenian students but also students from other exchange countries like Germany, Cyprus and Spain. The Slovenian school had organized a lot of activities for the days, for example, we went on a tourist tour in the city of Maribor and Ptuj, and we visited in Uranjek farm. We were also supposed to go downhill skiing, but the weather conditions didn´t allow it. Because of that, we went swimming and ice skating.  The host families had also planned us many activities for evenings, like bowling and eating outside. 

However, the best thing about the trip was getting to know new people and the new experiences we had during the trip. 

Jopo-luokan syysleiri Lapissa 19.9. – 24.9.2021

Teksti: Harjurinteen jopot

Sunnuntaina klo 7.20 lähdettiin koulun pihasta kahdella pakulla ajamaan kohti Lappia. Aikuisia mukana oli Alfa eli Pete, Jussi, MC Tuge ja Tuuli. Matka sujui osalla levottomasti ja perille päästiin juuri auringon laskiessa. Jättiläiskuu möllötti taivaanrannasta. Ensimmäinen yö nukuttiin laavussa ja teltoissa ja aamulla startattiin melomisretki.

Kanootit tuikattiin Tarvantojoelle Kuttaisen perämetsistä. Ja melonta alkoi. Alkuun melottiin rauhallista suvantovaihetta, kunnes joki muuttui kivisiksi koskiksi. Kanootti kerrallaan laskettiin hurjia koskia ja kun kivikot oli ohitettu, niitä tuli lisää. Leiri pystyyn Kuttasen rannalle ja rakovalkea tulille.

Aamulla herättiin lumisateeseen, syötiin puurot ja työnnettiin kanootit vesille, ensimmäisenä piti laskea Launinivan koski. Matka jatkui ja pian olikin lounasaika. Lounaan jälkeen taas melomaan ja tuntien melomisen jälkeen Tarvantojoki muuttui Muonionjoeksi. Muonionjoella alkoi raaka vastatuuli ja osalla porukasta sormia ”hieman” paleli ja kuivapuku hiersi kaulaa. Leiri tehtiin Ruotsin puolelle Kurkkionalustalle.

Aamulla taas puuroa naamariin ja kanootit vesille. Edessä oli 23 kilometrin melonta kovaan vastatuuleen. Tapokoski, Ollisenkoski ja Pingiskoski lasketeltiin jo tyylillä ja illalla auringon laskiessa nääntynyt porukka saapui laavulle.

Torstai-aamuna pakattiin kanootit Jussin autoon ja käännettiin autojen puskurit kohti Äijäkosken lomakylää, jossa kaksi lämmintä mökkiä saunoineen odotti reippaita retkeläisiä. Osa porukasta hinkui vielä melomaan, mutta osalle riitti mökin lämpö. Illalla aikaisin nukkumaan (aikuiset) ja aamulla startattiin autot kohti Loviisaa.

Ihana reissu, ensi kerralla hiihtämään!
