Recorded in the Ledger are events relating to the House and school which the Heads of House thought interesting or noteworthy and include sporting achievements (including summaries of various inter-house matches), details of the debating and literary societies, as well as plays performed by the boys at the House. Towards the end of the volume is a list of Grantites who entered the military, some of whom fought in WWI. There is also a list of Grantites killed in WWI.
