Old Collegians gathered outside Strowan House for 60 Years On Reunion

Old Collegians gathered outside Strowan House during the 60 Years On Reunion

On Founders’ Day, on Friday 12 March, the College hosted a double 60 Years On Reunion, with the Old Collegians of both the 1960–1964 and 1961–1965 year groups attending, given last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID-19. The day was generously attended by both year groups, with between 40–60 Old Collegians taking part in various functions throughout the two days. They enjoyed a spectacular Founders’ Day service on the Friday, with Catelin Riordan (Year 13) performing a most impressive Address to the Haggis. The groups were treated to lunch with the boarders, and attended a highly entertaining Highland Games, which rounded off the afternoon. This was followed by a cocktail evening where many funny memories were regaled. On Saturday evening, the group had a special reunion dinner, complete with a St Andrew’s College piper and another chance to see the Address to the Haggis. It was wonderful to hear such fantastic feedback from many Old Collegians about how impressed they were with where the College is heading in 2021 and beyond, and the huge evolution of St Andrew’s since their time 60 years ago.
