And now a little funny moment. The daughter of the our acquaintance learned in the Finnish school. Once she organized such joke: the teacher left the room for a moment, then he returned and the room was empty – no students there. The teacher came to the director who did not believe it. They came to the classroom together – all the students sat on their seats. Director looked at the teacher with some suspicion. Finally all turned out – the girl persuaded all the guys to hide in the school lockers. Teachers were in real shock from such creativity. Now this girl successfully completes her study.
