Dear Merchistonians and Friends

What a small world - click here to read about a chance meeting in Canada between Liam Sharp (85-90) and Iain Fullarton (89-94)

It was great to see Robbie Bremner (85-91) back in the School this week; Robbie was very impressed with the new facilities and felt that Pringle had a real buzz about it.
