at the front of the classroom or in a place indicated by the teacher.
• Use the breaks for eating and visiting the toilet.
Let’s respect other people at school events and parties

• Listen quietly and save your own discussions for after the event.
• Respect those who have organised the event by also remaining quiet between performances.
Let’s take care of tidiness and safety at Rellu

Let’s use breaks to refresh ourselves

• Let’s take care, that no one is left alone, and let’s make friends with an open-mind!

Using source material in written tasks
High school students will undertake many kinds of written tasks including essays, summaries, reviews of books and films, portfolios and presentations. Sometimes these assignments make use of reference material, and sometimes they rely entirely on the student’s own ideas. The approach required for a task should be clarified by the teacher. Copyright law regulates the use of source materials (Tekijänoikeuslaki 8.7.1961/404).
According to copyright law, text may be borrowed word for word from a published book. A quote must be clearly marked in inverted commas and the source must also be stated. There should be a good reason for quoting and the quote should be closely related to the subject.
Source materials are often used in summary form. Here the original text is condensed and explained in the student’s own words. This way of using a source must be indicated to the reader through a reference. This is also the case with internet sources.
Copyright law also regulates the use of all types of images such as photographs, drawings, tables and charts. The rights of usage are case-specific and must be checked separately from the source material.
The easiest way to use materials is with the Creative Commons licence, which defines how the material can be used. (see Ulkoinen linkkihttp://creativecommons.fi )
Plagiarism refers to the use of another person’s thoughts or ideas as one’s own without mentioning the source when quoting or summarising. This is dishonest. Sources must be mentioned in the way previously outlined. A student’s work which is partly or completely copied will be failed. In cases of plagiarism, there is always disciplinary action which may include termination of the course.
The same copyright rules also apply when using internet resources. Do not borrow or copy anything without stating the source. Some materials cannot be used at all.
