Pupils with special needs, behaviour problems,
ADHS, learning problems
„school on the move“ = Bewegtes Lernen
us: I´m the principal of a 1-6 grade
school, in Kokkola, Mid
Finland, at the coast. We are a Swedish
speaking/ teaching school with 133 pupils
, 10 teachers ( 3 of them are special
teachers) and 9 assistants. In
my school we integrate pupils with
special needs, meaning handicapped,
learing problems and other difficulties, as behavior problems (ADHD,ADD etc)
We have integrated pupils with special needs in every class, that´s why
so many assistants. We are an ECO-school,
“ Finnish schools on the move(
activiteies during the lessons, breaks etc.) We are situated just outside
Kokkola, so we are close to the nature, and we have an “outdoor” classroom we visit weekly, and have outdoor education. Music and physical education( sports) has a very
central part in our school.
some years (2020-2021) there will be another school( Kyrkbacken) included with
us, so then we will be about 210 pupils, 18 teachers and 12 assistants.
Probably Kyrkbacken´s teachers also would be interested in a project
and the NMS/VBS 1190, In der Krim - Vienna
We have got about 30 teachers and about 250 students in 11
grade to the 9th grade.
We have got
2 to 3 parallel classes each from grade 5 to grade 8 (NMS and VBS) and always
one of these classes is taught bilingual with the help of 3 English Native
there is one9th grade class, the
prevocational college, called the „Fachmittelschule“
moment the Austrian board of education is in transition and therefore also our
school type - form the old Middle school system called the „Neue Mittelschule
NMS“ to just „Middle school“
is over 100 years old and therefore the building and the infrastructure is old fashioned
as well, but we try our best to keep it up ( ICT, multimedia, the gym,…)
As we are a
school in the megacity and the capital of Austria, Vienna, we have a mixture of
cultures, religions and languages and have to deal with migration and social
problems. We are very proud of our multicultural climate with students from
Austria, former Jugoslavian countries, Turkish and Arabic pupils and because of
the bilingual project (English!) from all over the world, such as Africa, all
over Europe, Asia,… Many of our pupils come from socialy weak families and many
parents haven’t got higher levels of education. Therefore we try to help and
support our students as best as we can (language courses, homework
assistence,…) and try to teach them social skills and tolerance.
NMS Neue Mittelschule:
are taught as one group in the 5th and 6th grade. For grade 7 to grade 8 they
get split up in 2 groups: students with general/basic knowledge ( grundlegende Allgemeinbildung)
and extra ordinary good knowledge (vertiefende Bildung) in the 3 main subjects.
They are taught by 2 teachers who try to differentiate, support and help.
we have to implement the 8 european competences (Europass) to the 4 grades of
the NMS and started to use the ELP for the language competence.
