Showers of Sweets for “Penkkarit”

These two handsome superheroes, Petteri and Toni, came looking for Ms. Sylvia. They have both attended our English Classes at Cygnaeus School and wanted to be sure to give her some sweets.

Today English Class pupils, along with all of the other pupils at Cygnaeus School, were intermittently showered with sweets for about 20 minutes. The reason was that today is “Penkkarit” Day*. Students from neighbouring PSYL lukio (high school) paraded in costume through the corridors of Cygneaus sharing their glee with younger pupils, that their final day of school before matriculation exams begin, had finally arrived. They celebrated by handing out lots and lots of sweets to younger pupils.
