St Albans Finnish School celebrates 25 years
OVER 100 students, past and present, turned up to celebrate St Albans Finnish School’s 25th anniversary.
Former students from as far afield as Nottinghamshire attended the all-day family event, which centred on the unveiling of a piece of artwork followed by a baseball game for the adults in the afternoon.
Pirkko Soundy, chairperson of the committee, who has worked at the school for six years, said: “The day was a great success. We had classes as usual in the morning and had the afternoon for activities.
“The artwork unveiling was a great way for the adults and children to show their families what they had done to help celebrate our 25 years. The piece itself is an abstract collaboration of our students’ work. We wanted to give them the opportunity to express themselves in a way which represents their time here.”
Three large birthday cakes were shared amongst the guests who also enjoyed coffee and a selection of Finnish pies. The event also acted as an open-day for prospective students who were invited to take part in the festivities.
