Activity on campus is ramping up as a new school year gets underway, with students returning on Wednesday, Aug. 17. Faculty and staff were welcomed back to campus at a special morning ceremony around the Lily Pond on Friday, which honored Punahou’s new employees and set the tone for the school year. New faculty are getting acquainted with the school through historic tours of campus. Those new to Hawai‘i are learning about the Islands’ history and customs. Meanwhile, Junior School faculty participated in a fun community building event.
