Fifty days until graduation!

Every year SSHL celebrates “50-dagars”, a much-loved tradition that sees our graduating students celebrate that there are only 50 days left until graduation. The traditional celebration culminates with the graduating class receiving their Abiturient caps . These caps traditionally signify that they are eligible candidates for the no-longer-taken Swedish final exams that result in a high school diploma, much like the final exams that our IB Diploma Programme students still take.

Normally, each boarding house and our day students perform skits and shows of some kind I front of the rest of our students, and often finish with a traditional graduation chant about only having 50 days left until graduation. This year we have only been able to organise the cap ceremony house by house and class by class.

The graduating students display of pure joy is a wonderful thing to see. Enjoy the photos from this years cap ceremony!
