The name t’Bieske
The school building is situated on a hill, at the highest point in Gellik. In former times, before any buildings were seen in the area, a tempestuous wind often ruled at this altitude. In popular parlance, this was known as “De bies is oet” (there is a storm coming). The name of the school (’t Bieske) was derived from this saying. (Source: www.tbieske.be)
