From the Principal

Team Kista Talk and how we deal with the effects of potential right-wing demonstrations in our area

Team Kista Talk and how we deal with the effects of potential right-wing demonstrations in our area

Dear all,

As you all may know there has been applications submitted to demonstrate from far-right extremist groups in neighborhoods around our school but not directly in Kista. Besides being a display of horrible ideas and values, this can also be very dangerous when these groups collide or fight with anti-racist demonstrators. Therefore the school will keep its doors fully closed and we have increased staff presence around the main entrance throughout the day and on Monday as well to take care of any follow up or concern from students or parents.

On a more positive note, the second Team Kista Talk on the brain and memory is being published today.

You can find it here!

Your Principal,

Mr Ö. Huhta
