Traditions bring our community together and Winter Carnival is one that never disappoints. Despite cold temperatures and more time spent indoors, students and faculty enjoyed two days celebrating one another, having fun, and trying all sorts of activities new and old.
Theatre at Winnipesaukee Playhouse
Winter Carnival weekend also features our winter theatre production. The talented cast of Love/Sick performed off campus at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse in partnership with their education department. The show was directed by New Hampton School’s Director of Theatre Joe Sampson. Throughout the weekend, students and faculty went to the Playhouse to support their friends on stage and enjoy fantastic performances.
New Hampton School Basketball Invitational
The Frederick Smith Gymnasium hosted the New Hampton School Basketball Invitation, packing the stands for two nights as Huskies cheered the Men’s Varsity A Basketball Team to victory against rival Tilton School in a two-round tournament. Mika Adams-Wood was honored with the Sloan MVP Award.
Winter Carnival Luau, Casino Night and Bingo
Saturday was a full day of events. Following a great victory on the basketball court and impressive performances, the evening began with a Luau and pig roast. The dining hall then transformed into a Casino, also featuring some friendly games of bingo. Faculty and a few volunteer parents acted as dealers and regulated games, engaging students, showing off their card skills, and having fun. Similarly, students dressed to impress for their night out at the Casino.
Winter Carnival Roller Skating, Games and Treats
Sunday continued the fun with activities in the Field House including a roller-skating rink, a wrecking ball and criss-cross collision game, candy station, hot dogs and other tasty food stations. Later in the day, students competed in broomball in the Jacobson Arena and trivia in the theatre.
Head’s Holiday Surprise
To close a fantastic weekend, Mr. Williams surprised students with a Head’s Holiday on Monday. Students and faculty alike cheered in the houses as the message reached everyone on Sunday night. A well-deserved treat to relax and refresh before heading back into the academic schedule.
