Team operations


In teams, a student can influence and develop

Team operations

Ylivieska Upper Secondary School’s operating culture is based on the active operations of teams during the academic year. 

HOW DOES EVERYTHING START? At the very beginning of the autumn term, our upper secondary school’s students join their chosen team in which they wish to influence and develop our upper secondary school’s joint activities during the year. The teams are created and formed according to the students wishes and needs. Each team selects operators from among themselves: at least a chairman, secretary and spokesperson. The operations are also an essential part of the student union’s operations because a representative from each team is appointed to join the student union’s board. In this way, information easily travels from the students’ team meetings to the student union’s boards and from the teachers guiding the teams to all the upper secondary school’s teachers. The student union’s general meeting shall appoint a chairman for the board.

CONVENING OF THE TEAMS: The teams convene regularly (approx. 2 times/period). The group usually convenes at the invitation of the chairman at the time and place reserved for this purpose: the meetings have a clearly marked time in the timetable, which has been marked as “upper secondary lesson” (upper secondary lessons are reserved for team work Mon-Wed-Fri). Each team also has its own meeting location. The upper secondary school’s glass lobby operates as the notice board for team operations, and it is where the teams inform others about their operations.

TEAMS’ ANNUAL CLOCK: At the beginning of autumn, as soon as the teams have been formed, the students begin to plan their operations. At the end of the 1st period, the teams present themselves to all of the students and staff members, and tell about their objectives and planned operations. Over the year, the teams operate actively and independently, but also in cooperation with each other. During the academic year, the student union convenes to develop the teams: they present the achievement of their objectives in so-called development seminars. In these joint meetings, the teams present their development ideas, provide feedback to other teams and plan their operations for the following academic year.
