Schools' event day and concert in the city centre on 25 May
The schools of Tampere are in for a fun and relaxed day of events on Wednesday, 25 May 2022. In the morning, a light-hearted competition for lower secondary school teams will be organised and, in the afternoon on Laikunlava stage, there will be a school music competition concert aimed at all basic education grades.
On 25 May, lower secondary school pupils will have their own theme day near the city centre, where school teams will compete on a checkpoint course in the morning. The event will highlight sustainable development, the value of water and water management in a way that is both fun and promotes community.
On the same day, a concert for schoolchildren will be held in the city centre on Laikunlava stage, which will see pupils from all basic education grades both on the stage and in the audience. The competitive section in the city centre starts at around 9 a.m. and the concert on Laikunlava stage at around 12:30 p.m. Schoolchildren will also get to watch the broadcasts for the Palautuspäivä (Return date) event and the music competition concert from school.
A light-hearted race from Ratina’s pools to the upper reaches of Tammerkoski
Each basic education lower secondary school will be sending one class of pupils to a light-hearted morning race, where they will go through the course as one team. The teams will be divided into action groups, which will take turns carrying out tasks at checkpoints around the city centre.
On the course, the team will be going around the city centre while carrying water and performing tasks at checkpoints. The course goes from Ratina’s pools to the upper reaches of Tammerkoski, ending up at the Central Square.
The tasks have been designed and implemented by the basic education staff and other operators and partners in Tampere.
The final concert of the schoolchildren’s music competition starts at 12:30 p.m. on Laikunlava stage
During the spring, basic school pupils in Tampere have been competing in a song-writing competition. The competition will culminate in a final concert on Laikunlava stage in the city centre. The concert starts at 12:30 p.m. and ends at around 2 p.m.
As the competition was open to pupils from all grades, the concert is also aimed at all grades and pupils.
In the concert, we will be hearing songs from young promising songwriters from primary school to lower secondary school, ranging from rap and metal to Schlager. In addition to the finalists, the concert will also feature a performance from an established guest artist.
