Headmaster in the Middle East
The Headmaster and Mrs Hunter have just returned from a trip to several cities in the Middle East: Dubai, Muscat, Doha and Bahrain. A whole series of Gatherings were held for current parents; former parents; prospective parents and Merchistonians.
In Dubai, it was their great pleasure to touch base with Charlie Simpson (94-08) and his wife Lucy; Craig McLaren (74-79) and Mrs McLaren; Euan Kelly (00-05); and Angus McDougall (97-05). Angus read Architecture at Oxford Brooks University and worked in London before returning to Dubai and is now working in an architect's practice in Dubai. Charlie is working for a golf company, and playing lots of golf; Craig is working for Johnson & Johnson, the medical company and Euan, as well as playing some outstanding rugby for Dubai Dragons, is working in real estate.
In Qatar, it was their great pleasure to meet Simon Henderson (89-93) and his wife Charlotte and Malcolm MacKenzie (03-09). Simon is working for the Qatar Investment Authority, and Malcolm graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2012 with a 2.1 in Economics and shortly embarks upon working for the Commercial Bank of Qatar.
