Many Merchistonians will have attended one of the many preparatory schools of which there were an abundance before entering the school gates at Colinton.
Lathallan school based in Johnshaven is one of those and they celebrate a 90 year anniversary in 2020. A significant achievement.
Those of you who are Old Lathallians are part of an elite group - since its formation in 1930, Lathallan School has educated just over 2000 pupils.
On Saturday, June 6th they are celebrating their 90th Anniversary with an event which will be filled with great memories for all those former pupils as well as their families and teachers.
From tours of the school, photographic and historical archives, musical performances, sports and games for all, scottish country dancing, a massed pipe band as well as dedicated meeting zones for each decade it is hoped that all former pupils and their families will enjoy a great day. There are even thoughts of a Guinness World Record attempt......
The event will be rounded off with a dinner in the Assembly Hall (or the New Hall as some of you may remember it).
On Saturday, September 5th Old Lathallian Barclay Low and others will be organising a Golf Tournament at Edzell Golf Club for all former pupils who would care to join them.
Those who are interested in coming along on June 6th and/or September 5th should get in touch with the Lathallan school direct by emailing the school at firstname.lastname@example.org
