Our new friends go to Oulu International School. There are 289 students at OIS from preschool to grade 9. We only have 42 students in kindergarten to grade 7.
Here is a great You Tube video they have posted on their website all about their school:
From their letters we learned that:
- Many of the students like to play Minecraft. Many of the students in our class love Minecraft too!
- They only have PE once a week and we have PE for 30 minutes every day.
- Our school day begins and ends at the same time every day, but they start and finish at different times.
- We study many of the same subjects in school.
- Many of the students at OIS are from different countries around the world and can speak several different languages. Only one student in our class can speak more than one language fluently.
We decided to make a video to show our new friends a little about our school. This first video, will show you the outside of our school and some of the things we like to do (we are working on a second video that shows the inside of our school). We hope you like it!
