Full host in Copenhagen, Northern Lights and Dancing in the sun

Dear reader,

The weeks fly by at Ranum Efterskole College as the sun shines over Ranum and we realise that the last month of the school year is approaching. We enjoy every single day we have together at efterskolen and are counting down to our many upcoming celebrations, such as the 20th Anniversary, the Gala and the final out-week that includes Dream Festival and the big graduation. But before we welcome all these festivities, let's take a quick look back at this week's highlights.

Mark your calender with a BIG tick! On 22 June 2024 at 14:00, we will celebrate our 20th anniversary with a huge party! Read more about the day at the end of the newsletter!

Have a great time. We wish you all a wonderful sunny Whitsun weekend!

Full host in Copenhagen

Our Full host students have been on a trip to sunny Copenhagen this weekend, where they visited Tivoli Gardens, went on a harbour tour and saw The Little Mermaid up close! On the way home to Ranum, festive songs were sung on the bus after a fantastic weekend away in Denmark.

Northern lights over Ranum

The Northern Lights were at their peak in Denmark last weekend. And it danced beautifully past Ranum Efterskole College.

Gala is just around the corner. So once again this week we took advantage of the sunshine to practice our finest dance moves. Loud music was played and the students were very committed to doing a good job.

Students' Point of View

"It's been a fantastic week, the weather is great, everyone is out in the common areas, people are more open to new relationships, people are sunbathing in the garden and it just gets better and better. Happy summer days with lovely people, it can't get any better"

- Laura Black Frederiksen, student & part of the SoMe Crew 23/24

Dear reader,

Pentecost is just around the corner. The Danish written exams are over and the international written exams are coming to an end. In the classrooms, in the corridors and in the sunshine in front of the main building, students are preparing their synopsis for the Danish exams. It is an important exercise in gathering knowledge and reflection in an academic presentation, which certainly helps to strengthen the transition to the youth education that awaits after the summer holidays. 
We have ended the profile subject period with the last big Photo, Video and Article Competition, PVA, where students had their photos, films and stories from the profile subject trips in week 15 judged. The big competition shows everyone at the school our incredible diversity in subjects, interests and travel destinations. Pentecost is also the last chance to recharge your batteries. In the next few weeks we have New Students' Day, the Gala party and the last day of school before the oral exams start. There's a lot to look forward to and the high level of activity makes it easier to forget that we only have 6 weeks left of the school year. Live it up!
