The last school day for the Abiturients at HYL

The 12th Year students had their traditional last school day, called Penkinpainajaiset. In the morning they had breakfast with other high school students and teachers. After a very well-produced abi-video, they gave presents to their teachers and prizes to Abiturients. I got a bottle of beer. I wonder why.

Then they visited upper secondary classes giving candies to pupils. Finally, the trucks came, and they left for a ride around city with all the other high schools in Helsinki City.

The Matriculation exam starts on 10th of March, so now they have a couple of weeks time to study for the exam.

I hope that they will live a good life.
