The role of the After School Club is to support and balance out the children’s school day. There are set times for both quiet and physical activities (both outside and inside) and children are positively encouraged to join in both. Children are also encouraged to interact with each other socially in a way that they feel comfortable.

Club activities are versatile. They vary from doing homework, quiet play together,  or board games, to football, soccer or other games in the gym.


A healthy snack is offered every day (around 14:15) which is included in the fee.

ZAU Club

The TIS ZAU Club is organized in collaboration with LUMA Centre Finland and Zonta International District 20.

ZAU Club aims to introduce 10 to 12-year-old children to the world of science. The topics can vary from exploring food and reactions, the environment, art and sciences to stars and space. The participants have an opportunity to investigate different phenomena and use their creativity in problem-solving.

Johanna Rajala and Aliisa Wahlsten are our ZAU Club teachers. Please see the short introductions below:

Johanna: I am studying to become a teacher at the University of Turku. I am a fan of phenomenon-based learning and I think a good starting point to science is asking questions. The nature is full of amazing phenomena and what better way to make discoveries than by exploring, experimenting and observing. My goal is to get children excited about science and provide them with positive experiences.

Aliisa: I have studied biology three years at the University of Turku. My minor subjects are chemistry and geography and next year I am studying pedagogy. I know that we are going to have nice autumn with science, wondering about amazing natural phenomena. I am excited to teach and inspire everyone about the surrounding world.

The club runs on Mondays 14.15-15.15 in Mr Ward’s classroom B2109 in Norssi.
