'Sixties Snapshot'

Dear Merchistonians and Friends

Will this be the year that MRFC take home the winning trophy? Make sure you are there to give them a cheer when they take on Edinburgh Academicals at Raeburn Place on Saturday 3 June. Let Oli Green (99-07) know if you would like to join the pre-match lunch by Tuesday 30 May. 

Sixties Reunion

Saturday saw 25 Merchistonians, who arrived at School in 1960 and 1961, meeting up once again.  The gents were blown away with the School's new developments and facilities. They enjoyed swapping life experiences, especially as some of the men had not seen each other for over 50 years. Read a full update on the reunion here and take a look at the photo album here.

Merchistonians in Singapore

With works created from his very own experiences and what he has observed, artist Niall McWilliam's (Merchiston staff 10-16) recent works are inspired by Singapore's multiculturalism and will be on display from Sunday at his first ever solo exhibition in Singapore.  Click here for more details. 

Can you help?

Do you work in photography and videography?  James Raeburn (15-17) is seeking some work experience. A very talented young photographer in the making; take a look at his Facebook, Instagram or YouTube page. If you are able to help please let me know

Congratulations to…

Jamie McIntosh (02-09) and partner Dionne on the birth of their first son, Ollie.
