The start of the third and final year at P.A.R.T.S.: time to take in everything the school still has to offer. But also to prepare for what is to follow: professional life. Equally exciting as daunting. Although Corona has been consigned to the sidelines and school life is ‘back to normal’, the virus continues to reverberate in the personal struggles and tensions in the school. In addition to Black Lives Matter and mental health, also consent, food habits and gender diversity are on the agenda. At the start of the organization of the graduation student festival, it sounds: "to listen to each other is our biggest challenge."
