During the annual Gothenburg book fair, our Year 9 students took part in an exhibition called “Vår Stad” (Our City). The exhibition was a part of the Gothenburg 400-year celebrations and featured photos from the everyday lives of 500 Year 9 students. The aim of the exhibition was to showcase the students view of the city of Gothenburg.
Our Year 9 students went to the book fair with their teachers and could observe the exhibition themselves. We are very happy to have our students be selected for the project and have their work shown.
