And so it was time for it again – the carnival. Mr. Sköld said that this was the first year that he didn’t have to feel ashamed of us during the carnival – did that make it more boring?
Well, this year, the second and third year students had equally little previous experience; personally, I thought that would allow for more creativity, since there wasn’t a lot of material from previous years to copy. And, to some extent, I suppose that was true. Though there were classic themes such as students’ three-year-long journeys through KG, defeating Södra Latin in Läroverksfejden, and surviving Smiska Fisk, there were other ones as well. The ALS ice bucket challenge, for example – and the new grading system, of course. The most fun part of the carnival, though, was probably when the one and only host Daniel Paris lost the spotlight to a boy wanting to spread love – or when he kicked Fredrik Reinfeldt off the stage. Who saw that coming? No, this year’s carnival wasn’t boring. Instead, it was the perfect representation of Kungsholmen: full of energy, unity, and diversity.
And yes, the two slightly younger judges both went to social science. But let’s assume that’s irrelevant.

The National test. A synonym for stress, anxiety and confusion. The worries of students are tangible in the school atmosphere during these hectic weeks. When we’re anxious for the tests and our minds are blurry due to all pressure and stress, a confirmation that everything is well organized is the least that we deserve to […]
