New Tradition at Grey High School
14 Jan 2019New Tradition at Grey High School

A new tradition started today at Grey.  The incoming Grade 8 lined up outside the front of the school, and the current Grade 12s presented them with their ties, and helped them put them on.  Following this, each Grade 8 boy walked into the school, and was allowed to ring the bell.  This was the original bell from when Grey was at the original Grey Institute on the Donkin.  The ringing of the bell symbolises the boys arrival at the school.  The boys will only ring the bell twice more in their lives – upon leaving Grey as a Grade 12 learner, and again upon returning to the school as an Old Grey.
