The Brunswick community gathered in Dann Gymnasium on Tuesday, June 6, for Closing Ceremonies — an annual spring event to conclude the school year and honor students and faculty for outstanding accomplishments in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and throughout the community.
Head of School Thomas W. Philip noted that it was a great year for Brunswick School in “any way you can measure it.”
“The individual and collective successes that have been achieved — the academic achievements, the artistic presentations, the athletic victories, the lessons learned from experiences both joyous as well as challenging — all together serve to make this a year to remember.”
Philip encouraged boys to take a moment to consider all the people who made the year special for them — teachers, advisors, coaches, administrative staff, and the maintenance and kitchen staffs.
And he also thanked the boys for their efforts.
“Thank you all for your hard work this year, for your support of each other, for your involvements beyond the classroom, and for your sportsmanship on the playing field,” Philip said.
“It is a pleasure and an honor to be among you each day.”
The event concluded with the “Moving-Up” Ceremony, as eighth-grade students were welcomed to the Upper School and juniors rose to become the senior class.
