HW Opening Convocation 2014
Prefects were robed and class officers were sworn in today at Harvard-Westlake School's Opening Convocation.
While it was the 24th official opening day for Harvard-Westlake (as a merged school), it was only the second time in school history that all students gathered together on the upper school campus for a joint convocation. (The first time was last year for the start of the 2013-2014 school year.)
After the prefects and class officers were invested, the Head Prefects, Sarah Winshel '15 and Albert Choi '15, addressed the audience with their insights about the upcoming school year. Then, Harvard-Westlake President Rick Commons introduced the school's new mission statement.
Following the ceremony, students and faculty were treated to soft pretzels and time to celebrate together before continuing the academic day.
