Monumental moments can sometimes come in small places with even smaller refreshments. A tradition that began when Head of School Robert Brisk P ‘13 ‘15 first came to Wellington 11 years ago, the Senior Class Micro Mini Reception is an opportunity for leaders in the community to impart the upcoming graduates with sage advice, or five words of wisdom to be exact. Sixty members of the Class of 2019 joined Mr. Brisk in his office along with guest speakers from the school community. The speeches were as succinct as they were profound, giving seniors much food for thought as they enjoyed tiny treats in celebration of their fantastic final year at Wellington.
