The ancient ritual of the school bell is under threat! We still have bells you say? WEGC is considering becoming a bell-less school next year. We had a sample run recently, more by accident than design. A fault in the bell system led to bells being turned of for a day or so. It seemed to make little difference once the students adapted (after a lesson or two) and the peace and quiet was welcomed by most.
Some pros and cons can be found here: http://www.debate.org/opinions/should-all-schools-have-bells My view… I can’t wait to be rid of them.
