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 ❤

Union Letter – November
Posted on December 25th, 2016
The sun sets at 15.00 and the unclear weather served us with both snow storms and a few rays of sun. Regardless of the weather, a new month in the union-world means a new month filled with events! You may have been one of those who stressed over how to get home from school when the uninvited snow decided to say hello. It may have been suiting that KG Unplugged and the new language café created a cozy atmosphere in snow filled Stockholm. During these events, you got the chance to study with older students who could help you with both homework and give you tips on how they managed to get trough the position that you have now. You could also enjoy the fika whilst getting to know new students and maybe even improving your language skills by hearing a few new languages. The yearly KG for Refugees was also started and once again proved that KG can make a difference by collecting 265 910 kr and by doing so setting a record! Soon, it is also time for the American football game, and we got an early start on the event by selling tickets and KG’s own t-shirt. Last but not least, the long awaited school clothes were also delivered as an early and well deserved christmas gift.
Now, we turn up for the term’s last few weeks and and play christmas music on the highest volume possible.

Union Letter – October
Posted on November 1st, 2016
The month of October marks the end of warmth and the beginning of tiredness which increases with the rate of the darkness. To make things a bit easier and to give you inspiration to get through one of school’s tougher periods so that you can moderate your stress that all of us experience, the Happy week was started. During a complete week, lectures and workshops gave different perspectives as to what can help you specifically to get through school stress and give you inspiration for the future. Furthermore, the association fair was something that the student union hope that you enjoyed, however it is understandable that it can be hard to remember everything you saw during that small amount of time. Therefore, a personal association site was opened where you can manage your associations and join new ones; a little cherry on top of the association life. The awaited school clothes were also sold so that you can represent your school wherever you go without having to say a single word, just point to the logo 😉. Random surveys were also sent out so that we can get a response as to what you think of the student union, to make it the best that it can be. Last but not least, the month of October is the month of halloween, and it was obvious that this had to be celebrated! Hopefully, few people missed the decorations in school that were a part of the haunted house, where pumpkin carving, scavenger hunts and a movie slowly but surely calmed the school chaos and welcomed a well earned break.
And with that, we say au revoir to another month and rest during the break, while a new month sneaks into our lives.

Union Letter – September
Posted on October 1st, 2016
The month of September was started off with the yearly carnival. The planning of the social committee resulted in many fun plays and good entertainment, along with another class that got to know that they will be first to run out of the school on graduation day. Next in line was the biggest and best inspark in Stockholm, where 1100 students gathered at the slakthus roof for an epic night. For many third graders, this is the last inspark before the graduation, and the ‘mössutprovning’ enhanced the feeling of the fact that their time at this gymnasium is almost over, for good and for bad. To be able to enjoy this time at Kungsholmen as much as possible, there are ca 50 associations, and the associations fair gave you a chance to explore the ones that interested you. Half way into this month, many started to feel school related stress, and like a knight in shining armor, the service committee invited you to service bjuder where there was chocolate and other goodies, because chocolate fixes everything
With that, we say goodbye to September and welcome to October.
