School lunch

We have lunch at school every day, it's for free and you can eat as much as you want to.

There's one dish each day, including a vegetarian alternative (and if you cannot eat pork, lactose, egg or gluten, then ofcourse there is another option for you).

We always get to choose between lots of different salads and different kinds of crisp bread.
We are offered milk or water.

I personally do not like the food, but i know many people do. But it is not exactly restaurant quality

The food in swedish schools is very healthy - we are never offered white bread, juice or soda, and they never serve dessert (it we're lucky we might get a mandarine after lunch at christmas time).

The most common things served at lunch in Sweden:
  • Fish (maybe two times a week...)
  • Sausage

  • Soups

  • Meatballs

and finally, a never ending varity of (not eatable)...

  • ...steeeeeeews :(

This is what we do

Basketball Program

There are two different kinds of basketball programs, one is a nationwide program and one is a local program. For the Nationwide program people come from all around the country to try out for the program, if u get accepted you’ll have to leave your current association. At the local Basketball program, the one I go to, you can stay in your current association. At the local program we got 2 trainings a week on Tuesday and Thursday morning, were we train with the nationwide program and their trainers. At the Basketball program we still get the same education as everyone else on the sports program like we can still pick the science subjects or the social subjects and even a subject specialized at economy if we want to. We also get a education in how to referee a Basketball game, like we can be referees for different adges depending on how much time we spend in the education
