Application and admission

Children are admitted to afternoon activities for one school year at a time. Application forms are available from schools and online from the webpages from the beginning of the application period onwards.

The application period for activities during the school year 2020–2021 is 23 March–8 May 2020.

NOTE: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, you cannot deliver the application form to your school of choice in person.

You can send the form via secure email, which requires that you verify your identity with a bank code, mobile ID, or an official ID card that contains a chip. This identity verification acts as your signature on the form.

As not all of the service is available in English, this requires the following steps:

  1. Download and save the application or registration form you need to your computer. Close browser window, which shows form.
  2. Open the saved form and fill it in, then save it under the pupil’s name as so: lastname_firstname.
  3. Go to the website link that reads Send the afternoon activity form via secure email. You will find the link and the blank forms at the foot of the page.
  4. Add your email address to the Lähettäjä (= Sender) field, and proceed to verify your identity.
  5. Continue through the process until you reach Uusi viesti (= New message) view. Enter IP-hakemus (= Afternoon activity registration) in the subject field.
    In the lower corner, click on Valitse tiedostot (= Choose file). Search for the lastname_firstname file you just saved on your computer and choose it as your attachment by clicking on Liitä (= Add attachment).
    To finish, click on Lähetä (= Send).

Or send the form by mail to, Education Division, Afternoon activities, PO Box 51300, 00099 City of Helsinki or drop off the form between 8 am and 4 pm at the City of Helsinki’s Education Division offices at Töysänkatu 2 D, in Helsinki’s Valilla district.   

The decision concerning afternoon activities at schools will be posted to the child’s guardian by 26 June 2020. 

Afternoon activities start on the first day of the school year and continue until the end of the school year.

Outside the application period, enrolment forms should be sent to the address Education Division, Afternoon activities, PO Box 51300, 00099 City of Helsinki.

After-school activity search in Helsinki will show the different facilities and service providers that are available. Contact the service provider directly with any questions.
