About the Bunkeflo model
The Bunkeflo project began in 1999 at Ängslätt School. The project has resulted in a model, the Bunkeflo model, which has spread to many schools around Sweden. Researchers at Malmö University have followed the project since it began, and their research shows that pupils who take part in sport daily perform better at school, more pupils achieve the primary and lower secondary school targets, and more pupils meet the entrance requirements for upper secondary school.
