Over 50 upper school students embarked on 2-week journey to South Africa to acquire hands-on knowledge of the culture, history, geography, economy, politics, and daily life of the people.
Ten upper school students recently presented their narratives on the top “If I Wasn’t Afraid of Failing” to the entire student body during this year’s annual Oratorical Competition assembly.
Jemicy biology students traveled to Irvine Nature Center to learn about Maple sugaring, including how to recognize Maple trees, as well as how sap moves within trees and how it is collected and made into syrup. Students then identified and tapped Maples on the Upper School Campus; the sap will be turned into syrup in early spring.
Students visited the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore to explore themes of diversity and oppression that correspond to the Upper School trip to South Africa.
