Kb Mosaik pays a visit when the children are having their very last meeting for this term.

– Today is the last After School, says Marcus Cato, stand-in project leader.

– No-o-o-o-o, the children shout back in chorus.

–We'll be back again, once you've had Christmas and New Year, he promises.

Fine diploma, fine prize. Alma Abuzarad and the other children will decide how to use the 100,000 crowns prize money. Perhaps a lot of outings.

Ten or so children have defied the snow in the air and come to the library at Gamlegården. They have the library all to themselves. Today they are going to watch the documentary they filmed, discuss what activities they enjoyed and say what they would like to do next term. And have some cake and juice.

After School is open for children in classes 3-6. Here they take the children's opinions very seriously. And they have developed a high quality as regards cultural activities. So the project has been awarded Region Skåne's Kulturpaletten prize of 100,000 crowns.

The children have been able to bring along family members on outings, for example to Kjugekull. There they learned how to carve wood, make tasty ”bread on sticks” over an open fire, put up a tent and hike.

Marcus Cato has already had 30 suggestions for outings for next year. The prize money ensures that the future is secured.

– What do you think we should do with the money?, he asks.

– Go to Denmark, on the ferry, says one child.

Go to Stockholm, to the Jumpyard, go on the roundabouts, Tivoli, the baths .......

– Leo's Lekland, says Ibrahim Badel.

– Do you want to have more outings in nature, out into the countryside?

– Ye-e-e-es, they answer with one voice.

”The children have their say in a lot of things, in line with the Children's Convention”

Sitting still can be hard, but the children have set up rules of behaviour. For example, to listen to one another, to wait your turn, remember that everyone has the same value, to show respect, and help one another.

During the autumn they have made sweaters, drawn, painted, filmed a documentary about themselves and a whole lot more.

– The children have their say in a lot of things, in line with the Children's Convention, says Marcus Cato.

All the children have made a top list of books. Three prizes are to be raffled from the list. Alma Abuzarad wins a slime kit.Her eyes are shining, she's laughíng all over her face.

– I'll try it out at the weekend, she says.

Alma Abuzarad: ”We do different things, instead of hanging around at home. Everything has been fun, slime was great. And now I won a slime kit – I'll try it out at the weekend. I started at After School when I was in class 2, now I'm in class 4.  I'm going to come  next year too”.

Zakariya Al Jumali: ”When In started in class 4 we had to read a lot of books, for we wanted to win among all the class 4s in the country and go to Astrid Lindgren's World. My friend and I went to the library. There they asked us if we would like to come to After School, so we went the very next day. Since then we've come more and more often.  The best has been playing tv-games and painting”.

Muhammed Daramy: ”It was so boring at home, so I started coming here during the autumn. It was fun making slime, watching films, doing different things. Yes, almost everything. I'd like to go on an outing, maybe to Stockholm, and just have a look around”.

Rim Ali Basha: ”I've only been coming for a month or so. It was my friend Gina who said  when we started in class 3 that she couldn't come home to my place for she was going to After School. ”What's that?” I asked. Then I spoke to my mum about it, and now I come here. rt's been great fun, with slime. It was fun when we took photos and we got to choose the background. I've got mine at home”.

Ibrahim Badel: ”Outings have been fun.They're going to make a new play area over there, with a new basket-ball pitch, a football pitch and a skateboard area. They asked us if there was anything else we wanted, that was good. My sister started going to After School in  class 6. I went along too. I was in class 3, now I'm in class 4. I want to keep on coming here”.

After a break for snacks librarian Camilla Nilsson talks about Stv's Julkalender, ”An honest Christmas with the Knyckertz”. The children, Ture and Ellen, have bought a dog without getting a receipt. How can they prove that it is their dog? The police suspect that the Knyckerz family has stolen the dog.

”I've had 30 suggestions for outings. A lot of the children thought it was a good idea to be able to bring along family members”, says Marcus Cato, stand-in project leader.

– What does ”pinch” mean? Camilla asks.

– That you steal, take something that doesn't belong to you.

She says there is a new episode every day until Christmas.

– If you think the film is fun, you can watch it – or read the book, says Alexander Magnusson when the film starts to roll.
