As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, we look back at all the teachers of Holderness. Who do you remember? Who had the biggest impact on your life? What were their words of wisdom that still guide your decisions? Here's a look back through history at just some of the great ones!
In Kelsey Berry’s Art History class, students were asked to recreate a famous work of art in their own artistic expression. Through several assignments and a visit to the Boston MFA, the students gained perspective on a different way to study art--sketching. Follow the students' creative process in the video below.
Special Programs always require a certain amount of courage from our students, but this year required even more! The snowstorm and high winds this past week challenged all of our students to dig deep! And with overwhelming numbers, they rose to the occasion. Thanks to all who support Holderness School's Special Programs and make them a success every year!
During Artward Bound 2017, several students collaborated on the creation of two sets of colorful wings that will hang in the tunnels leading to Bartsch and the east side of campus, reminding us all to spread our wings and fly!
The annual Cheri Walsh Eastern Cup occurred this year amid a string of snow storms that left us buried under 3 feet of beautiful powder! While this may have kept some spectators away, it didn't keep the skiers from enjoying the rigorous climbs and ripping downhills on the Holderness Nordic trails. Thanks to everyone who participated, cheered, coached, and supported this event!
What's the impact of Mittersill on the Holderness Ski Team? We sat down with Director of Snow Sports Ivar Dahl and Sochi Olympian Julia Ford '08 to find out! Here's a link to our interview with them: https://youtu.be/BficGcjSPmw. Oh, and thanks to all the students who provided footage of their runs on the new trails!
Exams are over! Winter vacation has begun! And we’re already missing all our students! Happy Holidays to our current students, our alumni, and all the members of the Holderness family who make Holderness such a special place. Without you, Holderness wouldn’t be the same. Here's a musical message from our chorus that will keep you singing through all your holiday shopping and preparations for Santa Claus!
