Arts & Physical Education

Arts & Physical Education


Hitherfield’s Lower school students play recorders, learn music notation and sing, while our Upper school students continue with the recorder or may learn to play an instrument of choice.


Students JK to grade 8 present “May Plays,” over the course of four nights. Production performances help students gain confidence in public speaking and teach about effort, cooperation, and commitment. All students engage in an annual school-wide production as part of our dramatic arts program. This play incorporates all students, with the eldest having the most demanding roles and the younger children having carefully choreographed routines with lines. Additionally, each class from Grade 1 to Grade 8 presents their own play.

Physical Education

Students from JK to grade 8 cross- country ski and snowshoe on the trails of our beautiful property, as a part of our phys-ed programming.

Additionally, students JK to grade 3 take part in swimming lessons through Making Waves in Milton and students from grade 4 to 8 engage in rock climbing weekly.
