Dr. Andrew Armond

I want students to be spiritually challenged, to examine their own religious tradition and to explore what their place is in it. To ask, what does it mean to be a religious person? Chapel should be a sacred space where the community comes together and feels safe to share and be vulnerable, where we can take ourselves seriously. We can have silliness, but chapel is also where we relate based on something deeper, and that’s the community that we have here.

    At the heart of chapel is the willingness of members of the community - both students and teachers - to talk about their personal journeys, their families' cultures, their life lessons and their hopes for the future. 
Our School Prayer: O heavenly Father, who has given us Thy Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Friend and example, help us to understand His friendship, and to do such things as will please Him. Bless us in our work and in our play. Make us gentle, generous, truthful, kind, and brave. Keep us in purity of heart, and let the life of our school go on from strength to strength and have its place and meaning in Thy kingdom. All of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
