Graduation 2015 – Good Luck finding “the balance”!

On a glorious morning graduates and staff gathered to begin the celebration of 12 successful years of school for 184 graduates from VRG Djursholm. We started with a lovely breakfast provided by our Parents Association; followed by class photos and  group photo; a music and speech filled lunch; a meaningful final ceremony and, then the big moment, “utspring”. The following is a photo documentation of the day:

During the lunch speech, I shared with my students that more than anything I wish them luck finding balance – balance between working hard and playing hard; balance between planning and mapping out every step in their future and being able to enjoy the “here and now”; balance between being bold enough to share your own ideas and humble enough to accept the ideas of others … this is no easy task.

To further encourage them, I shared the inspirational words of Dr. Seuss – perfect for this occasion:

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
