The whole school gathers to the soldier's grave to sing and to listen to "the Message of Freedom" to appreciate the independence of Finland. Everyone has clean and tidy clothing. The food in school is slightly different.
After finishing their studies the last year students put on some funny costumes and go around the city to throw candy to younger students. The seniors also arrange the "morning radio" in Halikon lukio. They usually make fun of the teachers and other students. The seniors also give the school a whole new decoration: they put trash bags and funny pictures of the younger students on the walls of the school. The second year students will give diplomas to the seniors. After that the seniors will go for a truck ride around the city.
The prom is for the second year students right after the Kickout day. The students will take the teachers to drink coffee and eat cake with them. They will also visit the other schools of Salo and Halikko and they make the younger students eat baby food. After that the students will dance traditional dances. The girls are wearing beautiful and colorful dresses and their partners are wearing a tuxedo or a suit.
