    Meeting of the Minds: Compassionate Participation in the World

    Shipley’s mission commits us to “develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.” What is compassionate participation in the world and how does Shipley teach it to students? How do we make sure that learning is part of our service work? Our panel of service learning leaders explores these questions and more in this roundtable discussion.

      Brain Tree Online Interview

The Shipley School has a longstanding relationship with our sister school, The Brain Tree School in Uganda.  Each year, we engage students in this relationship and encourage participation in events whose proceeds benefit the Brain Tree School.  

This year, Fantastic Friday, our alternative to Super Saturday, will bring a new focus to this relationship.  We will share a beautiful video about the school and a brand new video in which two of our Upper School students on the Service Committee interview Martha Mukasa, the Head Mistress, a teacher, and a few of the children at the Brain Tree School.  

To support The Brain Tree School as they begin their opening in the midst of Covid, our Lower School is participating in a Walkathon, our Middle School students will have a dress down day and our Upper School students are holding a corn hole tournament.  Proceeds from these activities will benefit The Brain Tree School.  We will focus these efforts for Brain Tree from October 23 - October 30.

We are grateful for your support of this partnership!
