Waynflete’s 123rd Commencement was held the afternoon of Thursday, June 10 at Thompson’s Point—a beautiful early summer day accompanied by the cooling breeze that we’ve come to appreciate about this venue!

This spring, faculty members in the Lower School’s 2-3 program added an environmental unit to their yearlong maritime study, with a focus on marine debris. Teachers reached out to staff at the Rozalia Project, an organization that is committed to cleaning up the ocean and local beaches, tracking data, and looking for solutions to marine debris issues in the Gulf of Maine. A member of the Rozalia team participated in a Zoom call with faculty to help prepare for a field trip to Willard Beach in South Portland, where students recently collected marine debris.
