Academic Awards, Friday, June 1, 2012

Gladly we gather on this beautiful afternoon to recognize, appreciate and celebrate the special qualities of those students whose learning and labors have moved us, impressed us, struck us with awe, infused us with gratitude, even humbled us. In this celebration, as the faculty of Dublin School single out some students and describe for us their choices, they paint a brilliant mural of what education means at Dublin School.

“Happiness comes from freedom and freedom comes from courage.” My World History I students will tell you that Pericles said this in describing Athens in its glory, and in Athens courage meant participation in the affairs of the city-state as well as in the military. He describes Athenians as versatile, generous, open; as people who live not only by their laws but also by the unwritten code of morals, as people who banish their cares in athletics and affairs of the spirit, in drama and dance, who value wealth for usefulness rather than ostentation, and who see knowledge and discussion as the precondition for any wise action, chaotic and time consuming as that may be. This courage to be involved requires confidence, education, and the desire to speak up. Dublin School, another little city on a hill, embodies these values too, and I dare say Pericles would commend us for the spirit of participation, of education, and of freedom that we have achieved in this past year of learning together.
