Skill-oriented classes learn by doing, experiencing, and seeing
In skill-based teaching, in grades 1-6, the goal is to learn to identify one’s own strengths and to see and experiment creatively. The teaching uses diverse working methods and different forms of expression, and various projects are carried out that enable the idea-rich use of one’s own skills.
The pupil is allowed to try a variety of different ways to study and learn. In grades 1 to 4 there is a focus on fine arts, crafts, and music. The pupils in grades 5 to 6 have electives in visual arts, crafts, music, sports, home economics, and information and communication technology.
Cooperation is especially established with the teacher training school and the seminar garden, as well as with hobby groups, and the town of Rauma.
