In the last week of  school year,  the teachers organize a party for the graduates. This party takes place in the corridor of the school and in the school yard. The party starts with a show in which each class sings its hymn (a song with funny lines about their teachers and school years) After that they all sing “Gaudeamus” and go into the corridor to have some snakes. Finally the party starts where the students and the teachers dance, share some memories and have fun together.

Latin English
Gaudeamus igitur
Juvenes dum sumus.
Post jucundam juventutem
Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus.
***
Let us rejoice therefore
While we are young.
After a pleasant youth
After a troubling old age
The earth will have us.
***
Ubi sunt qui ante nos
In mundo fuere?
Vadite ad superos
Transite in inferos
Hos si vis videre.
***
Where are [they] who before us
Were in the world?
Go to the heavens
Cross over into hell
If you wish to see them.
***
Vita nostra brevis est
Brevi finietur.
Venit mors velociter
Rapit nos atrociter
Nemini parcetur.
***
Our life is brief
Soon it will end.
Death comes quickly
Snatches us cruelly
It spares no one.
***
Vivat academia!
Vivant professores!
Vivat membrum quodlibet
Vivant membra quaelibet
Semper sint in flore.
***
Long live the academy!
Long live the professors!
Long live each student!
Long live all students!
May they always be in their prime!
*** 
Vivant omnes virgines
Faciles, formosae.
Vivant et mulieres
Tenerae amabiles
Bonae laboriosae.
***
Long live all girls
Easy and beautiful!
Long live mature women also,
Tender and lovable
Good [and] productive.
***
Vivat et respublica
et qui illam regit.
Vivat nostra civitas,
Maecenatum caritas
Quae nos hic protegit.
***
Long live the state as well
And he who rules it!
Long live our city
[And] the charity of benefactors
Which protects us here!
***
Pereat tristitia,
Pereant osores.
Pereat diabolus,
Quivis antiburschius
Atque irrisores.
***

(vers. C. W. Kindeleben 1781)

Let sadness perish!
Let haters perish!
Let the devil perish!
Let whoever is anti-student
As well as the mockers!
***
***
