Beware all ye land-lubbers out there! Off on the horizon there be a show fast approaching and it be waving the black pirate flag. Hide your valuables and man your stations for it be those scurvy students of Rabun Gap and they be riding the waves of one of the most feared vessels of the seven seas: the Cirque Tortuga! November 6-8, 7:30 PM each day and 2:30 PM on the 8th, Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School will set sail for high adventure with a pirate-themed Cirque performance. A new addition last year was the well-attended and much loved Cirque Preshow. Scheduled an hour before each performance, characters mingle in a circus atmosphere outside the Rearden Theater sharing their talents with the community. This is a great experience for children too young to sit through the sometimes intense and always thrilling aspects of a complete cirque performance. Tickets will be on sale online until through Monday November 3: www.rabungap.org/cirque.
The weather was beautiful for the inaugural Rabun Gap Alumni Reunion Weekend, held on the Rabun Gap campus October 17 and 18. Campus was alive with activity as alumni and guests spent the weekend celebrating their milestone Reunion years. In addition to private gatherings, campus festivities included a 5K walk/run, with alumnus Ollie Hudgins '10 finishing first for the alumni group, literally jumping across the finish line. Saturday events included lunch at the Addie Corn Ritchie Dining Hall, hikes to Pickens Nose, face painting for the younger guests, and a fine arts showcase, including a sneak preview of Cirque Tortuga, scheduled for November 6-8. The day also included recognition of the Young Alumni Network for a successfull 100 Days Campaign, including the unveiling of a solar charging station selected by donors. Dess Oliver, retired industrial arts and technology teacher, was honored for over 40 years of service to the school and was presented with a plaque and chair. Saturday came to a close with dinner and dancing at the new Middle School Complex on Betty's Creek Road. Thanks to all who helped make this event a huge success!
Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School excels in providing students opportunities to become acquainted with ways to maneuver in the global environment they will soon lead. From embracing the varied cultures of the school's diverse student body to participating in activities which equip students with knowledge and experience to operate in a culturally rich world, students learn to move comfortably among their global peers and gain a greater understanding of people from all nations. Model United Nations (MUN) at Rabun Gap allows students to travel to nearby universities and replicate the negotiation and amendment process of the United Nations. The team traveled to Georgia Tech last weekend to compete with schools from around the United States. Rabun Gap MUN students represented the United Kingdom and Jensen Vu '15 received an Honorable Mention award as a delegate serving on the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The UNDP works with nations to improve quality of life, focusing on topics including expanding the role and number of women in government, reconsidering the Millennium Development Goals due to expire in 2015, and rebuilding regions affected by political instability in Africa and the Middle East. Team members included Jacob Calvert '15, Ryan Charnoky '15, Sandra Chung '16, Jodie Lian '17, Isabella Mo '17, Thuy Nguyen '15, Phoebe Peng '15, Joaquin Perez '16, Akira Stobaeus '15, Jensun Vu '15, and Apple Zhang '18.
