Hill School Chapel Talks

Attending Chapel is one of The Hill’s most treasured traditions. Sixth formers and faculty take to the lectern each week and offer the community the most inspiring, reflective, insightful, and sometimes comedic talks. Most are posted here on our website for all to enjoy. Take a listen - you won’t be disappointed.

May 29, 2024: Moving Up Ceremony

The traditional "Moving Up" ceremony occurs during the final Chapel of the year. Head of School Kathleen Devany invited the members of the Class of 2025 to “move up (over)” to occupy the Chapel pews reserved for the sixth form class. Assistant Head of School for Community Life and Dean of Students Ari Baum and Rising Sixth Form SGA Co-Presidents Maggie Qi '25 and Hilton Johnson ’25 also offered remarks.

Depression and Mashed Potatoes: A recounting and analysis of my struggles with clinical depression and anxiety, this talk is not about me. I hope to arm listeners with the ability to support those who need it and the empathy required to do so. I explain that depression is a multifaceted illness that affects lives in a myriad of ways so it is prudent that we, as a community, are adaptive in our response to it.
