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.
