Speech on graduation day by VFIS Head of School

What is happiness?
Happiness is never just handed to us. Happiness is a choice that we have to make everyday. 
Whoever has found happiness, that happiness she should hide
There’s a famous line by a 19th-century Finnish poet, “Kell’ onni on, se onnen kätkeköön”.
The Miracles

Assessment at VFIS

The purpose of assessment is to guide and encourage learning and to develop students’ capability for self-assessment. For the most part, assessment takes place in the interaction between teacher and student. Assessment should be continuous and varied. Experiencing success encourages students to learn more, but mistakes and failures are also an important part of the learning process. Assessment is an integral part of instruction and is used in a manner that promotes
learning and is honest and respectful.

The three general areas assessed by teachers at VFIS are:

Orienteeing in P.E
 Orienteering teaches students about the benefits of knowing how to read a map and navigate in urban surroundings or in nature.
