March/April: FLE-party
The FLE-party (Forældre-Lærere-Elever = Parents-Teachers-Students) is one of the school year’s highlights with students, their parents and teachers getting together for a festive dinner in the decorated classrooms and dancing to the school’s excellent orchestras. In accordance with tradition, all students dance the elegant ”Les Lanciers”, and it is our hope that as many enthusiastic parents as possible will follow their example. Students and parents are offered 'training' in this traditional dance.

May: Hat Ceremony

International hats for IB DP at Nørre G 

The festive "Hat Ceremony" for our IB students takes place in May in the study center. The students' special graduation hats are placed on their heads by the IB Coordinator (as is our school tradition), assisted by the School Headmaster, and teachers and parents celebrate the students having finished the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme course at Nørre G. The final results will only be available online on 6 July though - hence participation in the Ceremony is voluntary :).
