Dear reader!
The written tests have gone really well and there has been a great concentration in the large cultural hall. A lot of pupils have sat out the tests and the 10th grade maths test was particularly sweaty. The Cambridge exams have also gone according to plan, although just after 4 hours of maths, some 90 students had to be isolated from the outside world until the exam could start.

The week has been all about tests, but a large running team has still been to the Sildeløbet in Nibe. They won the prize for the largest team again this year, despite the fact that we couldn't have all the Cambridge students and that we only had students who wanted to run the 10km and half marathon.

Friday afternoons are a really nice end to the week, and we have now introduced a joint cake end in the Kærhuset and in the Dining Hall of the Seminary House, where students will be ticked off before they leave for the weekend.
This weekend is Pentecost and yet a lot of students want to stay and have fun together at school. The following weekend there is a skydiving course, and the students who are going to this course need to have the insurance papers signed by their parents. See the link for registration under the Teaching page.

The whole family and the contact group celebrated Martin's birthday!

In the coming week students meet again on Monday between 18.-21.30. The week will again include tests and preparation for the oral exams. On Tuesday we will be visited by 82 young people from Gregers Krabbe Friskole. They are going to an after-school camp and will use the Imagination Loft and the dining hall until Friday noon.
On Wednesday, we will be visited by the Tamela Youth Group that our Ghana visited last winter, and they will perform their dance show, as well as do a workshop for the students who want to participate.

Not much happens on an ordinary evening at Ranum Efterskole. From a leaking radiator to roundball and beauty night.

On Thursday morning, all students and staff will be photographed for this year's commemorative photo. In the afternoon, the whole school goes to the AFTRYK festival at Østhimmerland Efterskole. On the way there will be an excursion to Thingbæk limestone mines near Rebild.

It's going to be a great afterschool week!

Best regards and have a great weekend!
