*Links:

The school Website seems to have no photo of the chapel, no campus map, and no mention of the bells, although it has been reported elsewhere that bands of ringers will be trained at both the Boys School and the Girls School.

A news article about the dedication of the bells has photos of them.

Since this ring has fewer than 8 bells and no principal maker, it is not indexed by foundry.

*Status:

   This page was built on 21-Oct-12 (not from the database) and last revised on 21-Oct-12.
The city name is shown in mixed case at the top of this page and in all referring indexes because this site, having only 6 bells, does not have an entry in the database which supports all other site data pages.


Explanations of page format and keyboard range are available.
