Club and hobby activities

Club activities are organised for the comprehensive school pupils of Helsinki in connection with the school day. Pupils can participate in the planning and development of these activities, for example, through the students’ unions of the schools. Schools’ club activities can either be organised by the school’s own staff or bought from external operators (free of charge for the participants). In addition to this, schools may have other club activities organised by operators outside of the City (moderate participation costs). . Pupils in morning and afternoon activities can participate in the club activities at the school.

The City of Helsinki and Finnish model for leisure activities by the Ministry of Education and Culture will introduce free activities connected to the school day. The goal is to improve the well-being of children and young people. The activities have been designed based on the wishes of pupils.
