Head of School Delivers Opening Day Chapel Talk

Opening day chapel took on a bit of a different look on Tuesday as the Head of School’s traditional opening talk was moved outside to the lawn under a tent as Hamilton Chapel continues to undergo its renovation.

There, in a talk entitled “Working Together: Diversity and Inclusion at Belmont Hill,” Greg Schneider, Ronald M. Druker ’62 Head of School addressed the boys to begin the day.
Mr. Schneider’s talk outlined some of the steps Belmont Hill is taking to make diversity and inclusion a priority at the School. “Our goal is quite simple: to understand more clearly areas where Belmont Hill is finding good success in working with different types of students and families, and places where we need to improve,” he explained. “Our hope is that by pausing to listen deeply to all of our constituents, we might gather data and forge a proactive action plan to move Belmont Hill forward in new ways.”
