|Community Leadership Program in its Second Year|
As concern over hazing and bullying continues to hold the national spotlight, Holderness School is entering the second year of a school-wide program designed to address issues of hazing, bullying, bias and harassment with a focus on prevention. Last year 10 faculty members were trained through a Training of Trainers model. Then, in a series of small group meetings that occurred over the school year, these faculty took approximately 200 students through a program focusing on education, skills-building and empathy-building. This autumn the program has continued, beginning with an all-school meeting and education session with a nationally known expert, as well as additional small-group sessions for students who have not yet been through the training.
|Veterans Day Address|
On Monday, November 10, Holderness School honored veterans with a special chapel. Assistant to the Head of School, Andy Herring, a veteran of the conflict in Afghanistan shared remarks, an offering was taken, and the hymn was "America the Beautiful." In his remarks, Mr. Herring discussed the paradox of vulnerability and strength that can make returning home from war a difficult transition for vets, and challenged listeners to seek to understand the individual stories of returning warfighters, rather than place them on a pedestal. He also challenged listeners to see the well-being of veterans as an important social justice issue, noting that the U.S. military is a culturally diverse population that suffers the same social justice challenges as the general population, as well as the added stressors of deployment and combat. The full text of his remarks are below.
|Holocaust Survivor Addresses Local High Schools|
On Thursday November 6, students at Holderness School and Plymouth Regional High School gathered together to hear the story and message of Dr. Philip Riteman, one of the last living survivors of Dachau and Auschwitz. At 93, Dr. Riteman delivered a distinct and powerful message about a life beyond hatred and prejudice, providing an unique historical and cultural perspective that will not be available to younger generations. The event, which was hosted and faciliatated by PRHS, was an excellent opportunity for students from both schools to connect, as well - one that we hope will be repeated. Dr. Riteman's TED talk can be viewed HERE.
