Hyrsinki school is a village school with 51 pupils, 4-6 teachers and 3 teachers’ assistants. The youngest ones are the pre-school pupils aged 6 and the oldest ones are on the sixth grade. In the municipality of Pirkkala there are 5 primary schools and we are the smallest one. We belong organizationally to Kirkonkylä School, but are quite independent. The school will have its 100.Birthday next year. This project will be the third international project we take part in.
Our school is situated in a rural area, but there is not much farming here anymore. We have around 19 000 inhabitants in Pirkkala and our nearest town is Tampere in the southern part of Finland.
