Last open evening for Menzies

On Thursday 30th March 2017, an open evening for former members of the school community was held in order to have a final look around the 'old buildings'.

This was also a last opportunity to share memories of the past.

Around 220 people attended the event.

Here's what some had to say:  

'Thank you for organising this event. I had a great time looking around and trying - with the help of some people who were from my era – to remember how the school looked in April 1964 when we went there for the first term. There were some difficulties trying to picture where the old library was - the first bridge link having being removed and what is now a staffroom being the old library'. 

'Thanks for giving us the opportunity to have one more look around'.

'It was great to catch up with people that I hadn't seen for 30 years'.

‘I went on a fabulous trip down to memory lane to my old school Menzies. It was great to see it all before it’s demolished.’
