Afternoon Activities

Vakka ry morning and afternoon club

Vakka ry, the Parents' Association of the International School of Vantaa organizes a morning and afternoon club for the 1st and 2nd grade students as well as for students in upper grades who have an approved special-support decision. We operate during the school year from Monday to Friday. Morning club from 7.30am until 10.30am. Afternoon club from noon until 5pm.

Afternoon club is to offer a safe, happy and secure place for the children after the school hours. Our spoken language is English, but there is always a member of staff who also speaks Finnish and other languages. During the afternoon club hours we give students a healthy and balanced snack, supervise with the homework and let the children play with their peers in a safe environment. We also have various clubs which children can participate in.

Clubs for 2021-2022 are dance, music, art, drama and various other workshops during the year.

Our daily routine in the club is as follows:

  • 7.30- until your child’s school will start (We’ll send them to school according to their own schedule.)
  • 12.30 inside or outside play until snack
  • 13.15 snack after which it will be homework time (We will wait for all the children to have their snacks as coming to the club different times according to their schedule)
  • 14.00-14.30 clubs starts depending on the weekday
  • 14.30 outside

We have 80 student places and 5 instructors. Vakka ry morning and afternoon club has been operating for the past 18 years.
