The Development Office co-ordinates all matters relating to alumni, fundraising, marketing and future developments.
The Development Office is the focal point for all former pupils and friends of the High School of Glasgow who wish to learn more about the School or who seek to renew contact with contemporaries. We hope to enhance your involvement with the School so that you can share in its success. Our on-going objectives include building on the good relationships we have with former pupils, generating funds to support capital development and bursaries and encouraging bequests for the long term security of the Bursary Fund. Assistance can be given with arranging reunions or tracing contemporaries and visits to the School are always welcomed. The High School owes much of its continuing success to the strength of its vast community of alumni - current pupils and former pupils for whom the High School has a place in their heart and friends, parents and supporters who contribute so much to the life of the School. We are fortunate to have a very active School Association with representatives from parents and the school and a thriving Former Pupils' Club to which every pupil automatically becomes a member on leaving school. The High School family extends a warm welcome to everyone, from past and present, who has an interest in the long-term well-being of the School and who wishes to play a part in whatever way they can, be it becoming a member of a committee, organising a reunion, getting in touch with old friends, or taking part in a FP event.
The annual Glasgow High School London Club Dinner took place on Friday night at the Caledonian Club. Over 90 guests were in attendance for what was the final London Club dinner for Rector, Colin Mair, before his retirement in June. The guest speaker was actor, comedian and FP, Richard Thomson, class of 1997. Colin Mair commented: “I am very grateful indeed to everyone who attended Friday evening’s London Club Dinner. It was marvellous to see such a large attendance, and I greatly appreciated the kind words which many of you expressed. I had never expected to be returning home with such splendid gifts – I shall treasure the special London Club Quaich which Ian Brodie so kindly gave me and it will provide me with really happy memories of Friday’s Dinner and so many enjoyable visits to the London Club. As I said on Friday evening, I would encourage you all to maintain your contact and involvement with the London Club. FPs Ian Brodie, Ian Welsh and Chris Ansell work very hard indeed and the School has benefited tremendously from so many very supportive former pupils based in the London area over the years. I hope many of you will be able to continue supporting the High School through your participation in London Club activities in the future.”
As in the last two years, the London Club is planning to hold a lunch at London Scottish FC on Saturday 5th December 2015 and afterwards to lend some vocal support for London Scottish in their championship match against Rotherham (3pm kick-off). Lunch, including an outer stand (Highlander) ticket is £58 for three courses plus a half bottle of wine per person for non-members and £53 for Exile members. FP's who are already season ticket holders need only pay for the lunch i.e. £38. Initially two tables of ten have been reserved for Glasgow High and these places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There should also be plenty of parking spaces available at the ground itself. Will those former pupils or friends interested please email the Development Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your place by Thursday 12 November.
Audiences were ‘Rock N’ Rollin’ in the aisles as our Senior School Production took place over four nights, transforming our assembly hall into 1950’s America. http://www.glasgowhigh.com/news/2014/november/all-shook-up/
