'Time for the old school to show how it's done'

Dear Merchistonians and Friends

It's the Accies vs Merchistonians game tomorrow...

Get yourself down to Raeburn Place to support your crew! The bar is open from 1.00pm and kick-off is at 3.00pm.  Entry is free, can you make it?

Congratulations on your new job:

Thank you to everyone who replied with offers of work for James Raeburn (15-17), our Merchistonian photographer in the making!  We look forward to hearing about James' updates and hope to feature some of his work in this year's magazine. It was great to see James receiving his Merchistonian tie from the Headmaster this week.
