Everyone slowly starts to settle into their assigned school on the second day. Here’s a taste of what the Swedish school system is about:
Primary school includes grades K-6
Middle school: 7-9
High school (mostly referred to as gymnasium): 10-12

In these schools, students learn practical skills if they wish not to continue their education past a high school diploma. Here are some examples of those skills:

Though this may look dangerous to most people, there has been no reported injury when using these tools.

After school, the gang went to Hylströmmen. An area with a beautiful scenery of the woods and a superb waterfall.
