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.
