Independent boarding and day school 9th-12th grade in southern NH. Beautiful New England campus surrounded by lakes and mountains.
News from the Quad and Beyond.
It feels like just yesterday that I stepped onto this campus for the first time as a Dublin school student: nervous, lost, but also very excited. But, the sad part is that it wasn’t yesterday. For some of us it was four years ago, three years ago, two years ago, and even one year ago and already what now seems like tomorrow is the end.
The Week in Review
Senior Class traveled to Alabama for Habitat for Humanity Project. Last Sunday, the senior class headed to the “Heart of Dixie” to build houses with Habitat for Humanity. Students report that the weather in Birmingham is a balmy 90 degrees. They will return mid-next week with their trusty chaperones.
The Junior Class went Rafting in rural Maine, now views Dublin as a metropolis. The junior class made the annual trek up to Maine for 24 hours of breath-taking white water rafting and leadership training. All had a wonderful time on the rapids and lived to tell the tale. Special thanks to Mr. Bates, Ms. Bouton, Mr. Jackson and Mr. Hungerford for chaperoning the trip.
103 AP Exams were shipped off. Likely, the exams were sent to some secret AP bunker filled with nerdy high school teachers. Legend has it that this year’s Dublin test takers were the strongest bunch yet! Way to go!
PROM! Ahhh prom: the event that can incite deep nostalgia and/or nervous sweating in members of nearly every generation. Well, Dublin proms are not like any other. For starters, it’s required. Second, the dance floor is blind to lack of skill. Third, where else can you see your athletic trainer do the chicken dance?
The Boys' and Girls' Varsity 4+ and Boys' 2nd Varsity 4+ boats will be representing New Hampshire at the National Scholastic Championship Regatta in Saratoga Springs, NY!!!!
iDesign Comes to Dublin. Dr. St. John, an assistant professor at Mount Holyoke College, presented at morn- ing meeting on her pilot seminar in electronics known as “iDesign Studio.” Dr. St. John noted, “A surprisingly minimal amount of technological comfort empowered the design of such projects as slippers that alert the wearer to obstacles; an inter- active children’s book; and a dancer’s skirt with movement-reactive lights.” Dr. Bill Kennedy will be piloting St. John’s class at Dublin next year.
