Did you know?
Roycemore first opened its doors on October 6, 1915. Our founding Head of School, Julia Henry, named the school after her beloved grandfather, Andrew Royce. Roycemore’s mascot, the Griffin, has represented the school since day one, and its motto Fortis et Prudens Simul loosely translates “strength and wisdom come from careful judgement,” and also came from the Royce family.
Our Palio tradition reaches back to 1920 when students first demonstrated their physical education, athletic and dance skills. Each class will proudly present its banner, which they carry throughout their time at Roycemore, and in 12th grade, pass it on to the students of Kindergarten.
Do you remember your class banner? Save the date for this year’s Palio on March 16, 2018!
