”It feels like an ordinary end of term, not like leaving school for good”

They're getting ready to come running out of school – but they can't help feeling they're missing out on something big. With three weeks left until the end of term upper high school-leavers are trying to come to terms with their disappointment, and at the same time have as much fun as they can.
”In spite of hard restrictions we must be grateful that we can celebrate the end of our school days at all”,  says Mohammed Benjamin. He and Rutba Raheel, 18, are studying on the care and welfare programme.

Classmates Aya Alkafri, Rutba Raheel and Mohammed Benjamin are students on the care and welfare programme.

They have sat down in the shade on the grass outside Söderportgymnasiet.

"We're not having any ball, and on our last day only two relatives are allowed. That's not much fun"

They have gradually come to accept that that school-leavers this year too will have to tone down their celebrations because of the pandemic.

A lot has been cancelled. Victor Johnsson,19, Aleksander Lukic, 18, Vilmer Norrman, 18, and Leo Berger, 19, on the natural sciences programme at Österänggymnasiet, are trying to make the best of the situation.

– We're studying care and welfare, so we can't disregard that, says Mohammed, who would have preferred to have had all his relatives waiting to welcome him in the school yard.

”It feels fine, but I'm going to miss Kristianstad”, says Lukas Nilsson, 20, who moved here from Malmö to go to Riksgymnasiet. He is going to celebrate leaving school at home with his family.

Rutba Raheel doesn't know exactly what celebrations at home will be like, but she thinks it will be with her closest family members. And she too feels rather disappointed.

– We're not having any ball, and on our last day only two relatives are allowed. That's not much fun.

– It feels like an ordinary end of term and not like leaving school for good, Aya Alkafri points out.
