With the date fast approaching for your last tour round the School before moving to the new site at the bottom end of Viewforth, the final weekend in Septmber 2015 should produce a good turnout of former pupils. Anyone from the year groups of 1970 to 1979 are welcome and bring along anyone else who attended the school in this or any other timescale. In particular we would be keen to hear from those of you from Class of 1977, it is anticipated that prior to a fortieth reunion in 2017, we meet up before this as numbers develop. There are further developments on this year group in the pipeline with a Facebook link due to open soon, look out for information in local and community news outlets.

It is anticipated that there will be a reunion of those from the class of 77 in 2017 to mark the fortieth anniversary of leaving Boroughmuir. This was initially discussed by those of this year group who attended the School open weekend in Sept. 2013. If there are any former pupils from this year group who wish to meet up, add to the numbers interested in a reunion and wish to join the Boroughmuir FPA then please let us know, it would be great to hear from you.

I attended in 1979 while my father was on sebatical from the United States. I will be in Edinburgh this year and was hoping to touch base with anyone that I attended Boroughmuir with during that year!
