January 22 marked the start of Lunar New Year, a multi-day celebration that signals the arrival of spring in many Asian cultures. From classroom activities and projects, to art shows and assemblies, all three divisions are taking part in celebrating and learning more about the holiday and its traditions.
Cross-cultural festivities foster a sense of community, and students in the Jewish Student Union and Hispanic Student Union came together prior to the holiday break to celebrate and learn more about each other’s respective traditions and customs.
Letters have the power to change lives, and members of Hamden Hall’s chapter of Amnesty International penned a handful of letters advocating for social justice, promoting human rights, and showing solidarity with those around the world in conjunction with Amnesty International’s Write for Rights Campaign.
Learning emergency saving techniques to help those in need creates a community that cares, and Upper School students in our Anatomy and Physiology class spent the morning learning CPR and First Aid skills with the option of becoming certified.
The excellence of Hamden Hall’s Music department carries on as a combined 27 instrumental and choral students advanced to compete in the Southern Region High School Music Festival sponsored by the Connecticut Music Educators’ Association.
Hamden Hall Country Day School is a nurturing and inclusive community with a dynamic learning environment that promotes academic excellence by understanding each child and fostering their individual growth.
