The New Canaan Country School Girls Varsity field hockey team experienced a rare accomplishment in sports—the perfect season. Ending the season with an 8-0-0 record, the Cougars went undefeated, untied and unscored upon.
Seventh grade students used ingenuity and teamwork to build a bridge on campus. The 64-foot long structure, which all students regularly crossed on their way to the athletic fields, was constructed entirely out of locally-sourced bamboo stalks that were tied together with pieces of clothesline roping. Pine planks were cut to size and were added to create a fully functional walkway.
Middle School students are hard at work in the new MakerLab, where curiosity meets innovation. The collaborative space opened earlier this year to provide an opportunity for technological experimentation, invention, and teamwork, much along the same lines as the school's woodshop.
Every year, students from New Canaan Country School and students from the Horizons Student Enrichment Program at NCCS join together for Friends Corps, an opportunity to create meaningful exchanges between these two groups of students which are both served by our community. This year’s Friends Corps kicked off on Oct. 25 when 80 students gathered for a fun fall Saturday.
To cap off their study of The Revolutionary War, seventh graders played a colonial version of “The Amazing Race,” the popular reality TV show where teams race around the world and take on mental and physical challenges.
