In 2009 the staff of Staffansby Primary School came on a study tour to Scotland. Although based in Edinburgh they made the trip through to Old Kilpatrick to see Storyline being used very successfully by the staff of Gavinburn Primary School in the District of West Dunbartonshire. They were so impressed by what they saw of the work by Gillian Penney, HT, and her staff that they decided to organise a Storyline course in their own school in Helsinki. Steve Bell was invited to present a two-day course on 10th and 11th February 2010. He was most impressed by the fact that the teachers worked each morning, teaching until 1230 and then attended the course from 1300 to 1800. It must have been exhausting for them but it didn’t seem to affect the interest and enthusiasm of the group. Many thanks should go to Birgitta Ponthin, the headteacher, for her efficient organisation and generous hospitality.
