BRGS, a prestigious and ancient self-selective Grammar School \\\'\\\'[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]]\\\'\\\' Academy in Rossendale in [[OopNorth the North of England]], with merit boards spilling all their successful students, world champions, \\\'\\\'[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]]\\\'\\\' {{Oxbridge}} acceptees has one of these - \\\'\\\'\\\"Fide et Labore\\\"\\\'\\\'. Notable because everyone tells the new Year 7s that it means \\\'Feed the Dog\\\' (then they should feed the dog \\\'\\\'a squirrel\\\'\\\', the school mascot \\\'\\\'and\\\'\\\' logo is a squirrel, [[OverlyLongGag as is the school magazine and wikia entry and... most everything else]]). It actually means \\\'through faith and hard work\\\'. No-one tells them this, and they don\\\'t learn Latin either (though some students did at previous schools, and you have the option of taking four languages at GCSE here, having to take at least 1 or 2), but through brain power (here\\\'s the \\\'\\\'hard work\\\'\\\') somehow manage to figure what it means. I did.

Note: One of these successful former pupils \\\'\\\'is\\\'\\\' AmazingPhil, the guy off YouTube, though the school \\\'\\\'rarely\\\'\\\' mentions him. For some reason.
