Now it's almost over

Dear reader. 

The week has seen a host of oral exams, with Year 10 students in particular being tested in the main subjects of Danish, English and maths. It has gone beyond expectations for most and we are very proud that the students have managed to both travel far afield and then pull themselves together to perform with the green board.

The last tests end on Friday and we have completed no less than 777 written tests and, funnily enough, 777 oral tests. 

Activities out of the house 

In continuation of the great journeys, this week has offered a number of excursions locally and in - Nordjyske. The students have visited Skagen, Moesgaard, Aalborg Zoo and there has been a lot of water sports. Among other things, some students have tried out the fantastic Aira 22 boats on a trip to Livø, while other students have been out riding in the beautiful countryside around Svenstrup and Slettestrand.

Football match against Ingstrup Efterskole 

The football team has played several friendly matches during the school year. The students have arranged the visits themselves and on Thursday the school's football team visited Ingstrup Efterskole near Løkken. 

Water Sports Weekend

The last "normal" 1TP5 weekend was dedicated to water sports and the students were busy sailing, surfing, windsurfing and standing on SUP Boards. The wind was a bit rough at times, but the experienced sailors managed that too, so everyone had a good and safe experience. The students who took the duel theory this winter and who prepared for the practical duel sailing test also finished their exams this weekend. We wish them all a big congratulations for passing the exams. 

Student nominations and elections for Comrade of the Year

The students are busy nominating each other for a whole range of "crazy" awards, but they also have to nominate and choose the Comrade of the Year. The Buddy of the Year award goes to the boy or girl chosen by all students and staff at Ranum Efterskole College. The award is sponsored by Rotary Løgstør and has been awarded for more than 10 years! 

Memory books fill the evenings with talk and fun

Over the past week, a lot of students have been writing memoirs. It takes time to get around the peer group and collect little memories and messages from friends and teachers. The last week, and especially the last night, the memory book will be very important, because it brings everyone together and confirms the feeling of "Togetherness".

Last student party on 17 June

Students are already anticipating the festivities of the last week tonight, as the Student Committee and Parent Council hold the last big Student Party. Student parties have been going well this year, but for the final party they'll be going all out, including a live performance by rapper KESI. 

Family- and pick-up-thing Sunday afternoon

The last 1TP5Week starts already on Sunday afternoon, when we traditionally invite students back early from the weekend and registered families for "Pick-up-Thing and Family Afternoon". We also try to collect a number of pictures, videos and stories from the many cultural profile trips of the previous week. We know that students have been very busy with their oral exams, but we are keeping our fingers crossed that there has also been time to make a presentation to the families and their peers. The programme will not be shared until Sunday lunchtime at school level and the presentations will take place between 4-6pm in the banquet hall and classrooms.

Outrougen offers intense experiences and community

Monday we have Rønbjergdag, Tuesday is HouseCup, Wednesday starts with Home-Home Contact Teachers and ends with Gallafest, Thursday we gather the school again after an intense school year, and Friday we end with Dream Festival, where students stay overnight in tents brought by the school.  

In recent evenings, the students have been rehearsing the Lances for the big final dance at the Gala Evening. They have become quite skilled and it is great to see so many happy pupils coming together in this great community.

Graduation on the lawn on Saturday from 11-13.

Student team number 18 concludes with a big graduation for parents and siblings on the lawn in front of the main building. We will sing together, share speeches and acknowledgements and, most importantly, hug the tree of life in the schoolyard and each other goodbye one last time. It's one of the toughest days of the year - perhaps of life!

Happy weekend to you all and we look forward to seeing those registered for the Family Afternoon on Sunday.
