Thanks for visiting!
Philippe Lemaitre (88-96) brought his wife, Charlotte, and daughter to Merchiston this week for a walk down memory lane. Philippe now lives in Brussels and enjoyed seeing Pringle House again, where he found his ‘leaver’s brick’, and chatting with Tim Lawson (Examinations Officer) after all these years. When Philippe joined the School he was the youngest boy to start at only 9 years old, but was allowed to join as his older brother, Laurent (88-95), had already enrolled. However, it did mean that Philippe had to repeat his first year! We learned that JRB had an allotment in the Pringle Pitch and if you had been naughty your punishment would be to weed it – quite a practical punishment we thought.
