A few random photos from my collection

Bangor Grammar (the end of an era)

The school moved to new premises on the site of the old Gransha Boy's School. There was a Grammarians dinner held in the assembly hall on Friday 16th November 2012, followed by an open day at the school on Saturday 17th, a last chance for former pupils to see round their old classrooms. These are the photos of my visit

Bets are on as to who is first to climb it and place a Union Jack or Tricolour at the top
First Light  I noticed the opening ceremony taking place on my way home the previous day.
