Some Blair traditions, such as School Meeting, Chapel, Society of Skeptics lectures or ringing the victory bell after an athletic win, are routine parts of the weekly Blair schedule, while others, like Peddie Day and Headmasters’ Societies Games, happen just once a year.
These beloved annual events unite the Blair community in celebration of the School’s history and spirit, giving students the chance to get to know peers and teachers who they might not encounter in their daily routines. What results is a strong sense of camaraderie that leads to lasting friendships and cherished Blair memories.
