The main purpose of Finnish Schools is to support bilingualism within Finnish-British families and the first Finnish School was founded in London over 30 years ago. Currently there are at least 18 Finnish Schools all over the UK.
Glasgow Finnish School activity groups include PLAYGROUP (for children up to 2 years old), KINDERS (3 to 5 years old children) and JUNIORS (children over 5 years old), but also Finnish people without children are welcome to use the school facilities (including "Finnish shop") and to meet other Finns.
The meeting time is from 13.00 to 15.00pm during the selected Saturdays in the Pollockshaws Methodist Church, 74 Shawholm Crescent, Glasgow G43 1NY.
