Northwood Knighting Ceremony and Squires Bell Ringing
The Grade 12 Students were officially welcomed into Knighthood in a moving ceremony on Monday 21 January.
Each grade 12 student was accompanied by their father, Old Boy or mentor – who then pinned the Knight badge to their blazer, marking their transition from Squires to Knights.
It was a special morning for the grade 8’s as well, as they each had the opportunity to ring the Millennium Bell, marking their entry into Northwood as young Squires.
Our guest speaker, Mr Alex McAlery, an Old Boy, encouraged the students to “Seize the day” and reminded the students that “there is no such thing as a stranger in Northwood”.
