Kingscouple wishes graduates success in 'corona year'
Highschoolgraduates are congratulated on Thursday during National Success Day by a video message from King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.
RED: due to Corona this year the examinations, requirements and such are very different from normal. As also parties and such are restricted, someone came up with "Geslaagdendag" (day of the graduates) this year.
Traditionally in the Netherlans, a school student has exams (tentamens; school-related) throughout the year, with the central final exams (centraal eindexamen; national) in approximately early/mid May. The results will be announced around the beginning of June. In the Netherlands, when a student succeeds, the Dutch flag is often hung outside together with the school bag. Much of this was hardly possible this year or had to be interpreted in a (completely) different way.
