We have just completed one of the most challenging years in Punahou’s history. At the outset of the pandemic, we expressed our hope that we would emerge from this crisis as a stronger and better school, and together we have been able to do just that. As we celebrated the Class of 2021 at the close of the school year, we were able to reflect on Punahou’s tremendous potential, and what we had accomplished together. Though they had certainly experienced loss over the course of their senior year, our graduates spoke of the opportunities they seized, the friendships they deepened and the futures that Punahou enabled them to pursue.
The generosity and support of our Punahou community during these uncertain times has truly been heroic. We had the ability to deliver a fulfilling educational experience for all of our students safely, and we weathered economic instability and managed our costs to ensure that all of our employees remained with Punahou. Thanks to our incredibly supportive faculty and staff, parents, alumni and friends, we met the financial needs of our families and are setting the foundation for a bright future for our School.
Mahalo for all that you have done to make Punahou the vibrant, caring and innovative community that we are.
