To return to the subject of schooling for a moment.
This week is week #6. And it so happens that the number seks (six) is pronounced exactly like sex - so that's also when sexual education is the main theme in many if not most public schools.

Here is an amusing blog from a Scottish ex-pat, living in DK and married to a Dane, about that (in English): Week six? (More) Sex at school! – Diane's Daily Denmark
M&F's children are still a little too young for dedicated teaching of the subject, but Christian will be there in a couple of years.

- The material used now is pretty tame however compared to the notorious Elle-Belle-Bolle-Bogen from the 70's! Some Danes here may remember it.
Difficult to translate but that was illustrated sexual education in your face!
I can still remember one of the verses from the book (about Donald Duck BTW) but tact prohibits me from writing it here...
Actually you can't even get access to the book from the state libraries nowadays without coming up with very good reason!

A couple of tidbits from BB, written by our learned reporter, Ulrik Ulriksen.

Of Mary attending the 200th anniversary of the public school reform.

The white blouse Mary wore is by Max Azria.
Mary told a little bit from her own school days in her speech: "I still remember my own very first day at school: a smart, brandnew uniform, a new bag, my first school-photo for the family album, many new faces and names and a feeling of being - just that day - a little bit grown up. A beautiful but perhaps also a bit hazy memory, which I recently refreshed when our two oldest started at school.
To experience the first day at school as parents is however completely different, but the butterflies came along.
From my own time at school I remember my old maths-teacher. And she was really old, very strickt (*) and she threw chalk.
There was also my chemistry/science-teacher who was very inspirational. My athletics-teacher who shared from his wisdom. And then there was one teacher, who wasn't my teacher, but who made it possible for me to take up my passion for horses".

(*) All maths-teachers are strickt - or insane.
German-teachers are subject-idiots. There is nothing outside teaching German. - And they are usually mad as well.
Athletics teachers are unusually short-tempered and prone to smack you, or kick a ball at you. - Or just mad.
Science-teachers are excentrics.
Biology-teachers are vindictive and borderline mad.
History-teachers have tendencies to have nervous break-downs - in class.
Music-teachers are more than willing to smack you and pull your ears off while dragging you out of the class.

Mary participates as a patron of the 'School for 200 years' anniversary at the 'Schools Song days' in the Concert Hall in DR Byen:

There wasn't enough room so that all 1,500 children could get close to Mary. And what do you then do? You handle the situation like this

Thanks, great photos. The children looked ready to go squeeze through the fence in the first one.

A video from BB of the visit to the school, which lasted about an hour:

As you can tell it's an immigrant heavy school and there is a delightful interview with four third-graders. The first one: Explains that it was "utterly crazy" to be visited by Mary and the boy telss us that he was excited and slightly tensed before the royal visit.
The sweetest moment is the girl giggling.

A large B.T. gallery with some seriously nice pictures

A little girl almost climbed onto Mary's lap.

Se billederne: Børnene var helt vilde med Mary | www.bt.dk

Video from Berlingske.dk
Mary fejrede den syngende folkeskole

School principal Peter Hegaard is quoted as saying: "There was a totally Justin Bieber-like atmosphere when Mary came."

Does anyone know why the children in this photo were behind the fence and not in the crowds outside? It just seems a little strange. I apologise for sounding negative, but curiosity got the better of me so I decided to ask.

Roskilde had mentioned in her post that "There wasn't enough room so that all 1,500 children could get close to Mary"
i guess some kids improvised and reach out through the fence

Somewhat eerie pics actually. They reminded me of zombies or that Roman Polanski film about a girl who believe men are reaching out for her from the walls.

However, the-sweetest-pic-of-the-day award must go to the ones of the girl presenting flowers to Mary, which she must have picked herself.

This is the pic I referred to earlier: http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/298/7/2048x-u/7298696-.jpg

Which is scoring high on the aww-ain't-that-sweet scale.

It's not really a fence, as you can see in the BB video posted by Muhler, but part of the gallery (?) where Mary was standing.
The children actually were in the crowd outside. Those in the middle of the crowd had free sight and those at the side had that wood construction in front of them.

I agree. The young girl looks very genuine and sincere, modestly passing on the flowers she caringly brought with her. She looks very sweet and kind.

Thank you to those who answered my question. I noticed Roskilde's post but I thought she meant inside the school, which is why I asked.

***
These are my favourite photos from the event:

One ~ Two ~ Three

I love how the little girl just reached up to hug Mary in photo three.

Here are pictures from Mary's first event last Friday

Before she went to the school, she was to a children's concert in the DR city where she danced a little dance with the children. The photographer behind these pictures tells us that she was the only photographer because all the other photographers, unfortunately, got stuck in the same elevator on their way up to their places. It also explains why we've got hundreds of pictures from Mary's second event at the school, but almost no one from her first event. Poor photographers.
