I wonder if the Danish education system is the same as in Portugal (it looks like it). Here Primary Education is from 6-9 years old, Middle School from 10-14 years old, High School from 15-17 years old, University from 18 years old onwards.

I have only the Dutch system as reference, of course, but here it is primairyschool ages 4 to 12, highschool ages 12 to 16-18 (depending on which highschool level you attend) and then practical education/college/university, or work (but only after you've turned 18).

It depends on what you call "High School". In the US and Canada, High School normally covers Grades 9-12 only (ages 14/15 to 17/18). Grades 6-8 (or 7-8) are "Middle School".

However, some people alternatively call Middle School "Junior High School" and High School properly is called "Senior High School".

Yes, that is why I wrote that I only have our own system as reference. There are such differences between countries. It made me curious about what the system is like in Denmark.

Christian is on his last year in primary school, 9th grade. That's why there was speculating as to what he would do after primary school....

Having finished 9th grade, the pupils con continue in 10th grade, especially if they are still not sure what direction to go, or simply feel they are not ready for high school.
Some 60 % will go to high school for three years attending one of several main lines, like the classical mathematical or language line.
Many opt for what is basically 10th grade at a continuation school, where they live. Many if not most continuation schools have a specialty, like sports.
Some will become au pairs abroad.
Others will become apprentices, typically for 3-4 years as painter, hairdresser, technician, shop assistant and so on, with schooling in between working.
A few go straight from school to getting a job. That is actually discouraged though as it is the aim of the Parliament that all should have an education.

Some will later return to what is a kind of high school for adults, HF, lasting two years.

It is common for people who have graduated from high school or who has finished learning a trade to appear in front of the draft board, typically at 18-21 years old. In reality all who become conscripts are volunteers, some 98-99 %.
Men must appear before the draft board. Women can appear if they wish to and also sign up for volunteer conscription.

After high school many if not most will take a year off, before going to university, trade school or some other education.
----------------
- So Christian: High school. Perhaps six months to a year doing something else, like working on a farm in Australia or travel. Draft board and volunteer conscription. Frederik and Joachim chose the army, but perhaps Christian will chose the navy or air force. NCO-school and officers academy.
Then in his early twenties Christian will attend university, both in DK and abroad. In between he will return to the military while moving up the ranks.

Basic school in DK is 0-9th grade. About 6-15 years of age.

No.

But there is a high school right next to the school he and his siblings attend, so a logic guess would be there.
Can't remember the name off hand.

Here in England the schools are returning next Monday.

Nice to hear that the Danish children can go back.

Do you mean Øregaard Gymnasium, the high school which his father and uncle attended?

Other possibilities would be the schools which have already been "tested" by his cousins: Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium (Felix) and Herlufsholm Skole (Nikolai).

I guess Christian's choice will be heavily influenced by the experiences of his relatives.

Or he and his parents will choose something completely new, just like with his primary school.

Yes, that's the one.

My bet is on Øregaard, because a number of children of M&F's outer circle of friends attend Tranegårds School and will likely opt for Øregaard High School. (Some may even have older siblings going there.) But also because a number of Christian's classmates are likely to cross the street so to speak to Øregaard. We must assume that Christian as well as his siblings, have found friends among their classmates.

In the middle of the confirmation season.

And celebrate in private with due regards to the Corona restrictions, can only means that it will be a family affair only. I.e. few, if any at all foreign guests and representatives for the official Denmark. Which we might otherwise expect since Christian is a future heir.

A pity.

I think we can rule out any Swedish guests. The border is still closed except for those Swedes with valid reasons and it'd be very bad optics for Victoria to travel abroad when the authorities still recommend us to stay at home.

I'm glad we got a date now. Even with a scaled down version I'm sure it will be a special day.
At the same church Frederik did his confirmation 40 years ago.

What are the restrictions to travel to Denmark?
I'm thinking it will be only family, but we still have Joachim (who has traveled to and from Denmark a couple of times) and grandpa John abroad.

On another note, the Queen 1955 and Crown Prince Frederik 1981, at their confirmations.

He'll probably get twice the presents to make up for it?

Since they will celebrate it in private because of the Corona restrictions, are they going to release pictures? I hope they do.

There will be some official pictures and a photo-shoot outside the church, albeit probably with only a few photographers - I can't imagine otherwise.
But hardly anything from the private party.

Difficult to say right now as the restrictions could change between now and 15 May.

For Joachim, Marie and the kids it shouldn't be a problem. They're Danish citizens and although it's strongly recommended that Danes living abroad stay where they are, that hasn't exactly stopped them from going back and forth before. As for John and Susan, I'm not sure where they live right now so depending on whether the current restrictions are eased, them getting in and out could be a problem.


Interestingly, doesn't Pavlos have a Danish diplomatic passport? If so, at least one international godparent should be able to make it into the country as well even if the current restrictions are in place on 15 May, right?

Would postponing the confirmation until large gatherings are possible have been a viable option, or would that be impractical or controversial?
