Valentine’s Day

In Finland, Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily so much a romantic holiday as a holiday to celebrate friendship — in Finnish it is called “Friends’ Day,” after all.

As a way to celebrate the friendships we have with colleagues, a few teachers got to work making hearts with every staff members’ name. The hearts were placed in the staff room with the text of “I like you because…” above. Teachers, assistants, the secretary, etc. were all encouraged to write messages to each other throughout the week as a way to spread kind thoughts, words and cheer leading up to Valentine’s Day.
