2018 90th Dinner
We had our 90th Annual Reunion Dinner at the Glasgow Marriott on 9th March with around 60 FPs, current pupils, school staff and friends, enjoying an excellent dinner and evening of entertainment.
This year we honoured Alasdair Gray with our achievement award which all agreed was richly deserved. Alasdair is an accomplished author, artist and for over half a century has contributed much to the art and culture of Glasgow and Scotland. Robin Brunton gave a humorous speech of introduction on Alasdair's many achievements before presenting the award and opening the question and answer session.
Alasdair took several questions from the current pupils and FPs and signed menus and books for several guests.
The silent wine auction raised almost £200 which was passed to headteacher Pauline Swan for school funds. Pauline gave a short speech on the activities and progress made at the school and was followed by speeches from Amy and Connor on their achievements and plans for the future.
Richard Bell spoke of the work of the Whitehill Sports Trust, its foundations, development and the disbursements made to pupils, former pupils and teachers to promote sporting achievement.
