The Browning community traditionally begins the first official day of the new school year by attending a morning Opening Assembly at Christ Church, and this year was no exception. The September 10 program included welcoming remarks and the introduction of Form VI boys by Headmaster Clement, a rousing rendition of the School Song led by Chair of the Music Department David Prestigiacomo, followed by remarks from Division Heads Ms. Gruhn, Mssrs.
