Onsdag den 7 augusti 2019: Studenten och talangjakten!!

Published: August 10, 2019

Studenten is the word for the festivities surrounding the competion of high school in Sweden. You can read about it in this article. We at Sjölunden do our own studenten, which you can read about in this blog post! You will see many photos below of the students decked out in white clothes and the characteristic studentmössa, the white sailor cap.

After dressing up nice and taking some graduation photos, the students processed towards the dining hall. Their two-week villager friends were waiting there with big photos of the students to welcome them in. The photos included both current and baby photos—a testament to how much they have grown up!

Our student banquet included champagne (well, "champagne"), a delectable dinner, speeches from the students about what this summer has meant for them, an exhibition of their portfolio (the big project demonstrating a student's work at Sjölunden), and a post-dinner avec (drinks and coffee).

After the banquet, we had a talent show! Both villagers and counselors participated. I've put together a long, full video of the entire talent show that you can find through this link; you can also find some assorted photos and videos here.
