Bear - a dramatization of the story of Siya Kolisi and his time at Grey.  The film was directed and produced by Old Grey's, Wesley Roodt and Steven Jones.


Grey Boys' High School is extremely proud to have hosted the historic centenary meeting of this great Athletics Meeting.  Grey is even prouder of our athletes, who did their school proud on the day, and brought home the shield for Grey. 
Thank you to Mr Louis du Plessis, and Mr Sam Gunn for organising the event.
