MESSAGE FROM THE MANAGEMENT
I am excited to work in Oman and oversee the implementation of the Finnish teaching practices and know-how in a new environment outside Finland.
I feel very fortunate to be involved in setting up the Finland-Oman School from scratch. I believe every child deserves the best possible education, in Oman as anywhere else in the world, and I am happy to be here to share the secrets of Finnish success in education.
Working at Finland-Oman School is a great opportunity for me to collaborate with expert Omani and Finnish teachers. At Finland-Oman School we value each child and see their strengths. We treat children as individuals and help them proceed according to their capabilities. We have special education teachers, who support the children in their learning. Learning should be fun and joyful.
