Henry Grammar Student, Tiger Romaine, Wins the Alice MacGill Memorial Shield
Henry Grammer was a bootlegger and participant in the Osage oil murders. For more on this topic, read David Grann’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” on Shortform.
One of the primary pitfalls for students is using fragments at the end of a sentence. Be certain that all clauses are parallel. For example, do not put a comma after although (“Although coffee consumption rose during eighteenth-century Europe, tea remained far more popular”). Keep it straight!
Early Life and Education
Henry Grammar was born in Marlin, Texas and attended public schools as well as Concord Academy before attending Harvard College in 1837. His father was an agriculturalist.
Henry was educated using the classical model of university training, which emphasizes reading (grammar), discussion (logic), and student projects (rhetoric). This emphasised both practical aspects of learning as well as apprenticeship learning whereby academic subjects were covered before sending students out into their chosen field to practice under an experienced master/mentor.
Henry began his career as a cowboy before transitioning into rodeo judging. From 1908-1922 he took part in the Dewey Roundup and later judged at Fort Worth’s Fat Stock Show Rodeo from 1920-1923; additionally, Henry ranched in Osage County, Oklahoma.
Henry has taken the next step beyond school by enrolling at Monash University to study Engineering and Commerce double degrees. Alongside this academic journey, Henry plans on visiting various parts of Europe, New Zealand and Asia to expand his horizons and experience more cultures.
Before the new headteacher arrived, Prince Henry’s was an ‘unstigmatised school’; that is, an ex-grammar school with good exam results and an established past reputation, yet lacking drive and succumbing to complacency, conformity and nostalgia.
John Steel took great care in making only those changes necessary for long-term development at his school, while striving to preserve many of its old traditions and history. This approach proved popular with staff.
Achievement and Honors
At Henry Grammar School’s Celebration Evening this year, over 500 students, guests, parents and carers came together to honour their accomplishments at this year’s Celebration Evening. Attended by over 500 pupils as well as guests such as parents, carers and guests from other schools – awardees received recognition for attainment, progress and service to school; one awardee took home the Alice MacGill Memorial Shield that recognizes thoughtfulness and kindness towards others was Tiger Romaine who won it.
He was devoted to Grammar; always present at prize giving and rarely missing football or cricket matches, drama productions or school sports days. His dedication was further demonstrated at his form reunions; these were legendary for their camaraderie and unfaltering devotion.
Grammar’s senior science students were delighted when two were invited by the University of Sydney onto its esteemed lecture course. This decision by Sydney was especially satisfying and welcomed a fantastic opportunity for growth at Grammar.
Rodeoing on the circuit, he roped for both the 101 Ranch Wild West Show and Fort Worth Fat Stock Show rodeos as well as at Dewey Roundup and other smaller venues.
Henry VIII’s monasteries closed, along with their schools; thus dismantling an integral component of English education almost overnight (Orme 1976:28).
However, under Edward VI there were significant developments in educational matters. The revised prayer book introduced an English language service, while parish priests could now also teach children reading, writing and Latin; furthermore philanthropists began supporting humanism more readily than before.

Frederick Grammar was an influential planter with at least twelve slaves under his ownership. When his estate was divided among his children, one slave in particular named Jim Steward ended up on Col. Gilbert Russell’s Alabama plantation – with payment left up to his executors to decide later.
