On Monday, October 8, the eleventh annual Nueva Cup Golf Tournament was held at Green Hills Country Club in Millbrae. The weather conditions were ideal as nearly 60 parents, alumni, alumni parents, relatives, students, teachers, and friends of Nueva enjoyed a day of camaraderie, fun, and friendly competition benefitting the Nueva School.

Congratulations to our 2018 Nueva Cup winners Joe Arron, Phil Pemberton, Colin S. (grade 9), Luke P. (grade 11), and Jack B. (grade 11) with a team scramble score of 55 — a new Nueva Cup record low score. There was no doubt about the "Closest to the Pin" contest as Joe Arron won that handily with a hole-in-one — way to go Joe! The "White Tee Long Drive" contest was won by Mike Mengarelli and the "Red Tee Long Drive" contest was won by Nueva sixth grader James L. A "Chairman's Long Drive" award was given to John Henrikson for traveling the longest distance to get to the tournament — all the way from The Hague! Please visit the Nueva Facebook page to see photos from the event.


Special thanks go out to the Nueva Cup Tee Sponsors, Raffle Prize donors, and the Nueva Cup Committee, Nueva staff, and volunteers who helped make the event so enjoyable for this years' participants! We look forward to another great event in fall 2019 and hope you will be able to join in the fun!

"When words divide us, music unites us.” A favorite saying of violin instructor Sin-Tung Chiu, who teaches his Menuhin-Dowling students to live by the values inherent in this aphorism. When asked about the most meaningful aspect of the Menuhin Program, eighth grader Audrey A. couldn’t choose just one.

“The teachers are incredible," she said. "My violin teacher (Sin-Tung Chiu) has taught me so many new things over the years, and I’ve improved as a musician so much through his coaching.”
