At the International School of Vantaa, we promote equality and equity in all components of life at school amongst all members of our very diverse community. We aspire to uphold values of non-discrimination from all possible perspectives. We believe in the nurturing of our student and teacher body. All comprehensive schools make an Equality and Non-Discrimination Plan in cooperation with the students. The purpose of this plan is to highlight issues that could lead to inequality and discrimination, and to create mechanisms that promote an equal and non-discriminating working environment at school.
Instead of providing our plan in the standard written form we decided to have a more visual appeal to our plan by involving students in the process by tasking them with video project where they had to make videos about what equality at ISV means to them. The process proved highly enjoyable and rewarding and we are definitely super proud of our students and the values promoted at our school.
