For example, graduates can obtain their diploma at FC Groningen Stadium. “Students come as players on the field. Parents sit in the stands and family members can watch live,” Jepko van Roon, general manager of catering at FC Groningen, told Editie NL.
“The mail is too hot, and many schools are interested in that.” The football club only requests a portion of the supervision and production costs. “We want to play a social role in this.”
Alcohol-free bubbles and nuts
There may be a total of 100 people on the stadium. “On entering, each person gets a bag with a bottle of water and a bubble free of alcohol and nuts. It should be a festive moment.”
And the Premier League club isn’t the only one coming up with something to put graduates in the spotlight. For example, the Kruitwagen Clothing Rental company in Zevenaar came up with the idea of photographing students in party uniforms.
In Finistra Risen they came with a diploma bus. “All the teachers take the bus in front of the students, who can then get their diploma, which they deserve,” Claes Feenstra told Edie NL.
Catering and flowers
The bus will be decorated with broadcasters, and the sound system on the bus should guarantee a real party. “We can also provide food and flowers. We are doing everything we can to make a party at this special time.”
