There is always a buzz across the campus whenever new Berwick Grammar School Boys arrive, and Orientation Day was no exception.
As our class of 2024 entered the buildings, it became clear that we should expect them all to become avid table tennis players, just as we have discovered the class of 2023 is. After a few friendly matches that found new and old Year 7 students playing together, the new boys were addressed by Dr Middleton and introduced to their House Leaders, who will play a significant role in their schooling life across the next six years.
Art, Science, Sport and especially Technology were enjoyed by the boys, each of whom was given the opportunity to fly a drone and race them across the Performance Centre, with a group of current Year 10 students mentoring them along the way.
Lunchtime was a free sausage sizzle for our guests, and a social service fundraising opportunity as all sausages and cans of drink sold to current students raised money for the Pat Cronin Foundation, an organisation that aims to educate about the Coward Punch.
This gave the class of 2024 a glimpse of what life is like at Berwick Grammar School, where we Grow Good Men.
