SYK – Building a Mental Bridge to Old People’s Home


Pupils started to write profiles of their senior person. They discussed, how they should write an interview which is at the same time personal, respectful and informative.



When all the profiles were finished teacher read them to pupils in 5A. The stories of senior citizens’ lives were touching and real.

On our second visit to Old people’s home pupils gave profiles they wrote to their senior person. They continued the interview by making more questions about plays seniors played on their childhood. First of all it was good to see how happy seniors were when they had an opportunity to meet 5A’s pupils again. Pupils heard lots of stories, but they also realized that it is hard to remember things which have happened so long ago.
