Welcome back to you all. Special welcome to the ninth graders and to all of you who are new to the Upper School. I hope that you all had a great week and that those of you who are new to Waynflete will feel, with each passing day, that the Upper School is becoming more and more like home base to you. Please know that we are really excited that you have joined our community.
I want to start the year by asking a question that may seem a little odd coming from me.
What is the point of school? Really, what is the point of school?
It was a whirlwind week at Waynflete, but final events have come to a close and suddenly the hallways feel oddly quiet. We had two wonderful ceremonies for our graduating seniors—Baccalaureate and Commencement. Click below to see photos and poetry readings from the events.
Over the past decade, Waynflete’s sixth-grade class has closed out the year with a culminating event—a museum that showcases student learning. This year’s museum focused on the theme of the Ancient World.
