Union Letter – February and March
Posted on March 15th, 2018
The time has come for the last union letter from the board of 17/18. The Annual meeting is about to occur and it will be the end of us but the beginning of a few others. But before it gets too sad, we’re going to account for what has happened lately and we start with February. February started strong with Catch the Points and wow how fun we had when we looked at all the participants’ videos. The winner will be announced at the annual meeting and one happy member will get 5000 kr to travel wherever they want. One of the assignments for CTP was to come on Tuesday’s motionsskrivning and to write a proposal for the annual meeting. How many fun propositions we’ve got, read the “årsmöteshandlingarna” to learn more about them. A week later, it was fettisdagen, and that means it is time to eat some semlor! To the event På Spår(et) we gave away some and it was very much appreciated by many members and while munching on such a delicacy some members of the group stayed to socialize. Then everyone had a much-needed sportsbreak to be able to come back excited and ready for the annual meeting you’ve all been waiting for. It started directly with a roast of candidates where they had to show what they are going for and why the members should vote for them. The Årsmöteshandlingarna was then published where all information about the annual meeting is available. The last event of this board was dressup day which took place yesterday. And here we are. The first day of the Årsmöte is done and the board of 17/18 has officially resigned. It’s been a fantastic experience and we would like to thank the entire student body for an amazing year because without you this wouldn’t have been possible.
Union Letter – December and January
Posted on February 1st, 2018
Hello dear members! January is now over and the school work is starting anew and aren’t we all just sooo excited 😉 Here comes a little compilation of what has happened since December in the Student Union. December was kicked-started with a KG Unplugged session for everyone who needed a boost for the national tests in math. Then we continued with some holiday events by the project committee where we could both find socks filled with candy and those early birds amongst us could also see julkalendern and drink hot chocolate in the morning. Headmaster Hearing took place and we got to know our new headmasters even better. Then the Friday we’ve all waited for came and we got to see our American footballers and cheerleaders perform. We were then all inspired to make a small donation to the Musikhjälpen when the social committee, together with the Association Synergy, held vinterfestivalen, where all revenue went directly to Musikhjälpen. Together we donated 5500 kr. Then the first semester of the school year was over and we all got to go to a well-deserved Christmas break. Now it’s January and it means that means we’re halfway to summer vacation and we can start seeing life a little bit brighter. To help you get started after the holidays, the student union has had some events. During both week 3 and 4, lobbying committee organized, in collaboration with Kzine, Södra Latins school paper Latin lover and Södras Democratic Committee, project mental health that drew attention to both mental health and illness. There was also a magazine produced regarding this which can be found in the library. Tuesday 30th there was a Student Union seminar where anyone interested in applying for the next board could come and get a little presentation about the board and could also ask questions to the elected representatives.
Union Letter – October and November
Posted on December 1st, 2017
October means to some the end of the warmth and the light and the beginning of the fall. To help with the motivation when the darkness fell, the first KG Unplugged of the year was held, where you could get some guidance on anything from those equations you struggled with to that french essay. For those of you who wanted to dream away to sun and summer or maybe longed for Christmas, it was a dress-up day with the theme holidays and the winner received a gift certificate on every KG students regular coffeeshop: Morellis! For those of you who didn’t win on dress-up day, there was a new opportunity just a few weeks after when Halloweek was organised at the school. Then KG was invaded by vampires and ghosts and one or two zombies. During the week, there was a treasure hunt, a bake-off, horror movie screening and, above all, the great Halloween party with VRG Odenplan, Södra Latin and Marina Läroverket. After the intense week, everyone went on a well-deserved break, but when you came back, the last half of the semester started off with killergame. There was running through the hallways, teachers sighed, victims complained, and killers only got more points. For the third years, the first reminder of their upcoming student was here, namely Mössprovningen. Some bought hats that week while others picked up their school merchandise and the new kg hoodie is common now, if it’s just because it’s super-cozy or if it’s because you want to represent the best school is hard to know. As a result of these eventful weeks, pepprallyt was held before the American Football Match and we can all agree on what school has the best teams, the best cheerleaders and above all, the best audience!
Union Letter – September
Posted on October 9th, 2017
For the first years, September was intense. They started off with one of the school’s oldest events: smiska fisk! Dressed up in garbage bags and with equal amount of grossness and enthusiasm they got to experience the true KG spirit. Grossed out but happy they went home to prepare for the inspark the following day. That’s when all of KG went to outer space and danced all night long below the starry (and sometimes rainy) night sky.
Pug hug, The Board
Union Letter – August
Posted on September 12th, 2017
August came and went in the blink of an eye. The 21st of August was the first day for the new first years and the day after that they were introduced to The Student Union. Those who registered as members received goodie bags filled with this and that from the Service Committee and they also received the Survival Guide, the ultimate guide for every KG student. This intense day ended with the Poängjakt between all the classes and all the tasks they did were documented on their Instagram accounts (if someone is interested in knowing all the mildly awkward tasks they did). On Monday the project KG Re-Calculate was launched, a cooperation between the Student Union and Kzine, where students will be able to re-use calculators. The Carnival theme was released on Tuesday and after a couple of hours of discussions and debates all the tracks chose what they wanted to do and they could go out to Rålis and have some adventurous rounds of Capture the Water which was arranged by the Project Committee. Friday came at last and together all of KG marched to Rålambshovsparken to select the best track but also choose those with the best props, the best character, and the best PR. And it was really the third time lucky for one track, the NASC-track won and their cheers of joy were loud enough to reach space.

Union Letter – April
Posted on June 1st, 2017
We’re more than halfway through the term and the finish line is now in sight. The Student Union has a new board that was elected in the middle of April, but a lot has happened since then. We have sold tickets for the Kryssning and hosted the Committee Fair. Even when it rained we marched with some of the student body to Zinken, where a lot of people participated in the first part of Läroverksfejden, and with fighting spirits we cheered on our fantastic representatives. We won that day and we brought home the victory, disregarding our ice-cold hands. This weekend, the sun arrived and with it the motivation to attend school went away. Regardless if you’re in first year and completely tired after everything the first year of KG entails, if you’re in the second year and have soon fought your way through the most demanding year or if you’re in third year and can see the light at the end of the tunnel; fight your way through it.
Now we hope for more days filled with sun and hopefully some motivation to finish the year!

Union Letter – Mars
Posted on June 1st, 2017
For the union of 16/17, March is the month that indicates the end of our mandate and the welcoming of a new union. Therefore, March and its election spring prepared us for the annual meeting. During the election roast, the candidates were questioned by Kungsholmen’s Debating Society, where you could also ask your own questions that you wanted answered. Lastly, it was time for the annual meeting. The 14th and 15th of March, you were given a goodiebag and fika, and the annual meeting had finally commenced. After many fair-play competitions between the candidates, a whole new board was elected, and soon it is their turn to continue to represent the best student union in Sweden. The resigning board would like to give many thanks for an amazing year and continue to look back at our time with the union as a fantastic experience. Without further ado,
The Board of 16/17 give their final Pug Hug <3
Union Letter – December
Posted on December 25th, 2016
The last month of the term is finally here and teachers take the chance to jam in your last few tests, but day by day we still come closer to a well deserved and needed break. Congratulations! You have now either managed your way through your first term of gymnasiet, completed half of your gymnasie-time or started the countdown for studenten. Regardless, the Student Union hopefully provided you with yet another month of fun events that you could attend, and in what way better to start off than with some christmas coziness while watching julkalendern and enjoying the goodies that service bjuder provided. Once again, KG showed its support for all of the amazing students that participated in the American Football Game, and what a great game and amazing performances we were given! If you have ever had any questions for the principals, you could ask them at the Headmaster Hearing where you were given information about anything in between the principal’s thoughts regarding “ämnesbetyg” and Ms Brunnmans ugly christmas sweater with pugs on it, a true KG spirit <3. If you hung back, you could also ask the Student Union any questions that you wanted answered. Furthermore, December is a month of music that fills the country with Mariah Carey and Nat King Cole, and in a true music spirit it was time for the Winter Festival where you could see KGs very own talents on stage, and the 3112 kr that were raised during this event were of course donated in full to Musikhjälpen, who this year focused on children in war’s right to attend school. To surreptitiously start christmas, the project staff started a Gift Hunt where you could look for hidden gifts in school with clues on our snapchat, because WHO can resist free stuff? For you who is over 18 and want to celebrate the break a little bit extra, you’ll be able to attend Café Opera to party with the other schools of Stockholm.
Now, we all go off to our break and enjoy food, sleep-ins and study free weekends – We deserve it ❤
The Union ❤
