Head of School Greg Schneider Delivers Chapel Talk on Fatherhood

Continuing a long tradition of delivering a Chapel Talk to the boys on the morning they return from Winter Break, Head of School Greg Schneider spoke on the topic of fatherhood.

He explored fatherhood through many different perspectives including through literature, his relationship with his own father, and his personal experiences as a father.  "I suppose my reflections upon fatherhood today have allowed me to share a few things that do ultimately matter to me – things that I would love for you to know in some small way before you leave this school," Mr. Schneider explained. "And while I trust you are in no rush to become a father, I hope you might consider what you might want your children to know one day. What are the qualities that you are sure you would want them to replicate about yourself, and how might you hope they could be different from you?"
