Finland comes to Kingswood

The Makana Municipality in Grahamstown enjoys a twinning partnership with the Raseborg Municipality in Finland, and Kingswood College was recently visited by a delegation of Finnish teachers and school pupils.

Kingswood director of academics, Theuns Opperman, recently visited Finland on a study tour to research their education system and so he was delighted to be able to share the Kingswood experience with the Finnish visitors.

Opperman remarked that the Finnish students found the concept of a boarding school quite perplexing as they were not accustomed to having their movements at school controlled in any way.

The Finnish delegation visited a variety of schools during their South African stay.
