The GSW Lodges

Feb 10, 2023

In this section, we'll describe the Lodges here at GSW, as well as how one finds their way to a Lodge.

Your Lodge assignment is based on the element associated with your astrological sun sign and age. Our youth Apprentices, those under the age of 18, are sorted into our Psyche Lodge while Adults are sorted into one of four Elemental lodges. The dates used for sorting are as follows: Astrological Signs and their Lodge Apr 21 - May 21 ( ♉︎ Taurus) Stones Jan 21 - Feb 19 ( ♒︎ Aquarius) Winds Mar 21 - Apr 20 ( ♈︎ Aries) Flames Feb 20 - Mar 20 ( ♓︎ Pisces) Waters Aug 24 - Sep 23 ( ♍︎ Virgo) Stones May 22 - Jun 21 ( ♊︎ Gemini) Winds Jul 24 - Aug 23 ( ♌︎ Leo) Flames Jun 22 - Jul 23 ( ♋︎ Cancer) Waters Dec 22 - Jan 20 ( ♑︎ Capricorn) Stones Sep 24 - Oct 23 ( ♎︎ Libra) Winds Nov 23 - Dec 21 ( ♐︎ Sagittarius) Flames Oct 24 - Nov 22 ( ♏︎ Scorpio) Waters To Learn More About your Lodge, click your Lodge's crest on the Forums Page! Choosing a Different Lodge Rarely, an Apprentice may feel that regardless of sorting, they would find a better fit in a different lodge. If this is the case, the Apprentice should discuss it with the Head of Lodges or the Dean of Students. In some (infrequent) cases, where the reasons are compelling, the school will allow the Apprentice to change Lodges.Note: we do not generally allow a change simply based on the Apprentice having a friend or family member in a different Lodge. The Lodges Our Lodges provide Apprentices with an opportunity to bond with other Apprentices and form a group identity within the larger Apprentice body. Each Lodge has a Lodge site/page and a forum for its members on the school website. Each Lodge is led by an Apprentice Prefect. The Lodges have a single faculty Head to moderate the forum and carry out other functions, this person is called the Head of Lodges. The Head of Lodges The GSW Lodges are led by a Head—a member of the Grey School staff or faculty.  Along with the Apprentice Captain, the Head is responsible for the health, well being, and vitality of Apprentice leadership. The Head assists the Prefects in planning projects for leading the group, and also assures that all activities adhere to GSW policy. The Head of Lodges can also create challenges and award merits to deserving Apprentices.
