The Final Time - Soon there will be Exams... and Graduation!

Spring is on its way and now our IB graduating students enter their last time at Birkerød Gymnasium. The school is slowly starting to buzz about the final sprint, the upcoming exams and all the celebrations. We call it "The Final Time". Therefore, here is an overview of the most important dates and events leading up to the graduation ceromony on Friday 23 June 2023.

Dear parents of 3u students,

We are getting closer and closer to the final exams. We are, therefore, also preparing the graduation celebrations coming up in May and June which we are all looking forward to, especially the students.

A proper celebration requires the attendance of one’s family. We have three celebrations at which families are welcome to attend:

1) First, there are the lovely graduation hats. On all days on which students have their final ex-ams, we will arrange a private area for the students and families to celebrate this important day. Here family members will wait for the students to arrive after being done with the final paper, and then you can make the first celebration of your son/daughter having finished all his/her exams. Students will have their hats put on by a family member, friend, or teacher. For this celebration, you are welcome to bring drinks and snacks (it is a Danish tradition to bring sparkling wine and strawberries dipped in chocolate ).

2) On the final day of the three-week exam period in May, we are pleased to invite you to

The IB Reception Thursday 18 May 2023 at 12:00 pm in Fællessalen at Birkerød Gymnasium

The IB Reception is a celebration and manifestation of the IB Candidates having completed their final exams, a gathering of candidates, parents and teachers for speeches and a drink and snacks. For the IB Reception, due to limited space, we can only accommodate students and parents. For students finishing on the final day (Biology students), we can include grandparents and sib-lings.

3) Finally, there is BG’s main celebration of all the graduating students at the school, the Graduation Ceremony, on Friday 23 June at 9:00 am in Birkerød Idrætscenter, Bistrupvej 1, after which the graduates go on their truck rides. (Students must be ready at the back of the centre 8.30 am)

We are looking forward to seeing you at one, two or all three of these celebrations.
