Intake of '60 Reunion

On Saturday 20 May twenty-five members of those who arrived at Merchiston in 1960 and 1961 met up once again at the School, accompanied by ten wives.  We were given a tour of the School’s new buildings and the 2G pitch in the back field, followed by a drinks reception from the Headmaster, which was hosted by Peter Hall, the Senior Deputy Head.


Our other guests on the day were Bill Donaldson, our former 1XV rugby coach and Chalmers Housemaster ; Brian Thompson, former Rogerson West Housemaster and Second Master; Gareth Baird, Chairman of the Board of Governors; and Andrew McDonald, immediate Past President of the Merchistonian Club.

A wide range of memorabilia was displayed in the Old Library, including photographs from the 1960’s, which caused much hilarity.

We then repaired down to the Spylaw Tavern, in Colinton Village, for welcome drinks and dinner, complete with continued conversations amongst us all, remembering our days at Merchiston.

Many messages of thanks and congratulations have since been received by Gill Imrie, the Club Secretary.
