Finland - Kurittula-räppi

We are very happy to be able to represent Finland in the 2020 Schoolovision contest!
Along with the following rap you will get acquainted with our school that was taken into use in the autumn of 2019!
The rap was made by the rhythm club members of our school and the whole personnel of the school was involved in it.
The schools in Finland were closed in March due to the coronavirus. We had to finish the video working from homes and using the material that existed already. This spring has taught us that we should never give up, necessity is the mother of invention :)
Best wishes to all of you from Finland, stay healthy and safe!

  2. One of the best things about Schoolovision has always been its ability to showcase different cultures and the areas we all go to school. It's great to watch your lovely school and to hear this nice tune! Good luck from Scotland!
