As my time in Finland was drawing to a close, 
I was able to attend the Finnish graduation ceremony called 'lakitus
- that's Finnish for 'getting the white cap' as a sign of finishing upper secondary school.
All the students were dressed up for the occasion...

....there was music...

My 'old' friend Hassan even rapped for the graduates!

There were 44 of them this year, and they listened tearfully to Gaudeamus Igitur, an official farewell song to high school leavers in Finland (and elsewhere)...


Hopefully, getting back to Mozartland will give me inspiration 
in my piano studies ;)
