Fear and tension are creeping through the halls of Merchiston this week, as we are in full-throttle exam mode. As the
Headmaster pointed out in his Headlines, 65% of the School is in examinations this week, which is an incredible statistic. Our Upper Sixth are now looking ahead to the start of University or a highly-anticipated
gap year; do you recall that sense of mingled excitement and panic? Familiarity behind, but the world ahead… I'm sure you'll join me in wishing the boys all the best.
The Merchistonian Club Magazine is now coming up over the horizon. Do you have any stories you'd like to share? I've had some wonderful ones come in so far, from sailing in the Gulf Islands to charity endeavours, hikes, filmmaking and sailing
around the world. You definitely don't have to have done any of these things to merit a story; I'm interested in the lives of all Merchistonians. Where has your life taken you since you left the Castle walls?
Similarly, I'm updating the Club website. My technological excitement aside, I'm very aware that our Announcements page needs a bit more attention. Please let me know of your positive developments; have you recently graduated, or studied for
a PhD? Were you promoted to your dream job? Are you engaged, married or enjoying the arrival of a new bundle of joy? Whatever the proclamation, pop me a note
here and I'd love to put it up on the website for you.
Enjoy this delightful June weekend. Cherish the blue skies while they last!
