On Friday, September 8, 2023, the official start to Wooster School’s 98th year began. As is our tradition, we came together as a community for Convocation, and this year on Coburn Lawn.
When asked by Wooster’s Head of School, Matt Byrnes, if I would be interested in traveling to China to represent Wooster School with our Connecticut-based international student homestay and recruitment partner, Apex International Education Partners (APEX), I responded with a resounding yes! After that, I dusted off my rigid, unused passport and spent weeks preparing for an opportunity of a lifetime. I felt a mix of emotions during those weeks: exhilaration and excitement for a new adventure, urgency and anxiety of needing to be prepared in a short amount of time, and nervousness of traveling with people I have never met.
Wooster School recently participated in the 20th Annual HALO Awards for Connecticut High School theatre which recognized and celebrated student achievements in all aspects of theatre: acting, technical theatre, directing, and more. Wooster School was recognized with 17 nominations for its productions of CLUE and GODSPELL and won 2 awards in the ceremony.
Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) worked with Wooster School staff to achieve a Heart Safe School designation keeping students, staff and community members safe during a cardiac event.
Wooster School held its Commencement Exercises on Friday, June 9 to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2023. These seniors join more than 3,000 alumni who have graduated since Wooster's founding in 1926. Congratulations to the Great Class of 2023 for all of their accomplishments!
