Old Collegians at the 50 Years On Reunion

At the 50 Years On reunion, truths were exaggerated, the haggis addressed, pipes played, songs sung, and a good time was had by all. Former staff member Rex Livingston joined the attendees at the Friday evening gathering in the staff room and brought along a range of class photos. On the Saturday, many visited Graeme Worner’s magnificent project at Lincoln, to establish a combined West Coast and Canterbury foothills ecosystem. At the Saturday evening function at the Commodore Hotel, Dougall McLachlan played the pipes, Jonathan Gardiner addressed the haggis, John Barr controlled the evening, Donald Graham gave a passionate toast to the College, Jeromy Gilbert won the most environmentally conscious award, and Chris Thompson an award for still being the same weight as in his school days! Sunday brunch and a tour of the College rounded off the weekend’s festivities, with the attendees marvelling at how St Andrew’s is at the forefront of educational change
