Heathwood Hall Episcopal School took 13 Upper School students to the Rensing Center from Monday-Friday, March 7-11, for Winterim 2016. Heathwood Hall Upper School students spend a week each March pursuing an interest that will broaden their educational experience. The Winterim curriculum focuses on five main areas: Academic and Cultural Enrichment, Leadership, Service, Wilderness Education, and Internships. Students are required to choose one of these areas each year and at least one internship during their four years. Winterim experiences are local, national and international.
While at the Rensing Center with teachers, Elise Hagstette and Scotty Peek, students wrote stories, songs, and created visual artworks which were mostly self-directed as a typical Artist Residency would be. They also shared communal meals, their artworks and thoughts about art, and stories and laughter around campfires.
