Everything went according to plan at the annual Spring Promotion at Cygnaeus School. The gymnasium was packed with parents of sixth graders as well as pupils and teachers. All of the sixth graders made their entrance by participating in a stately Polonaise procession.
English Class sixth graders Tekla and Jakub narrated the programme which included singing the Satakunta song, the traditional summer hymn, Suvivirsi, and the farewell song, Jäähyväislaulu. Sixth graders from classes 6B and 6C gave memorable speeches. Headmaster Arto Suni spoke and announced award recipients. The sixth grade music class sang a beautiful rendition of Climb Every Mountain in Finnish and English. The promotion ended with sixth graders receiving roses from their class teachers and walking an honour aisle composed of the school’s second graders. Below is a video clip showing English Class sixth graders receiving roses from their class teacher, Ms. Anneli.
