Simonkallio After-school Club started its operation in the Simonkallio School’s premises on 8 August 2019. The club offers versatile activities both indoors and outdoors. Our child-centred approach allows the children to participate in designing and implementing our activities. The club operates in a versatile environment comprising the school yard, a sand pitch and the nearby forests and parks. Our indoor activities take place in the school’s classrooms, and they include play, games and handicraft. In addition, a functional Breikkeri club, whose goal is to support well-being education and the development of transversal competence, operates as part of the after-school club. Come rain or shine, we spend time outdoors every day, and we reserve time for both instructed and free play.

Frequently asked questions

Our after-school clubs emphasise outdoor activities and exercise as an important counterbalance to the school day. Parents, too, have expressed the wish to include as much outdoor activities in the after-school club schedule as possible. Please dress your child so that they can participate in all kinds of activities. The children should always wear or have adequate clothing in accordance with the weather (raincoat, outdoor trousers, rubber boots, warm gloves etc.). Your child should also have indoor clothing and spare gloves, especially during wet seasons when their clothes may get wet already during the school day. All after-school clubs do not have facilities for drying wet clothes.

In addition to application situations, we provide daily information via the pupil’s diary or the club phone. When relevant, we give your child handouts that contain information to parents on the after-school club’s future activities and possible trips. You may also agree a separate appointment with one of the club instructors or the coordinator to discuss club-related matters. A parents’ evening will be organised for the club-goers’ guardians during the autumn to provide them with the opportunity to discuss timely club-related matters with the instructors and the coordinator.

At the start of the operational period, the parents inform the club instructors when their child’s school days end so that the club personnel know when to expect the child to arrive. If the child does not show up at the club, an instructor contacts the parents. Parents should inform the instructors about any absences so that they do not get concerned in vain when the child does not arrive. Times for leaving the club for home are always agreed on by the adults. Thus, the child cannot come to the club and, for example, let a friend know when they leave for home. For safety reasons, cell phones are turned off during the after-school club, and communication is handled via the club phone.

The parents should inform the club instructors of all of their child’s absences so that the instructors do not get concerned in vain.
