Did you join Boroughmuir Prep/S1 in 1971? 

If so, we would like to invite you to the class of 1971-1977 40th Anniversary School Reunion on 3 June 2017 at Boroughmuir Rugby Club, Meggetland, Edinburgh. If there is enough interest, we may organise a few social events before the Reunion.

The 40th Reunion will be a great night out to meet up with old friends and share memories of our schooldays!

If you are interested in coming along, please email Douglas on We will add your contact details to our email list and will let you know about any planned events as well as details for the 2017 Reunion. 

We would also be interested in hearing from anyone who attended Boroughmuir during the 1970s as we are hoping to organise more Year Group Reunions. Please email on the above email address for further information.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Douglas Roxburgh (1971 – 1977 Year Group Champion)

As previously intimated I along with some classmates from 3B4 (1952) met up for lunch in the Balmwell  on 27/9 & thoroughly enjoyed our natter. One of our company, Jim Mercer was on hols from Canada another Valerie Trollope had been in Aust during Open Days so we arranged with David Dempster to have a walkabout the School on 29/9 which brought back many memories also much appreciated that DD took time out to chat to us afterwards. Always looking for more of our era to join us tho'

It takes quite a bit of determination and detective work to contact  people from your yeargroup. Three of us (not even in the same class!) got together, and the search began. We used Friends Reunited and 192, and eventually word of mouth. The tipping point came when people began contacting us with addressess and phone numbers of others. Someone later told us she had never before made so many new old friends!
