On Wednesday, December 11, students and faculty celebrated the last real day of classes before midterms with a morning trip to Hobcaw Barony and an afternoon Secret Santa Christmas party. We toured artist-in-residence Maura Kenny’s watercolor exhibit at the Discovery Center. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed her enhancement of the medium with silver stitches and transparent overlays to suggest the past in our present. The weather was so beautiful that we decided to walk down to the pond behind the center, which was lovely.
At lunch, a large and mysterious box arrived in the common room, courtesy of Chris and Chandler. The seniors presented their senior gift to The Georgetown School: a brand new refrigerator to keep drinks cold and ready to sell! Dr. Gates announced our spring trip destination and that all student fund-raisers should be directed towards earning money for it.
