Dear New Boarder Parents

I am very grateful that you attended the boarder AGM last Sunday. It was wonderful to see the
excitement and anticipation amongst all present.

I have had the opportunity of talking to some of your sons and I hope to conclude my chats with them in the next fortnight. I do understand how difficult it is for them to adapt and familiarise themselves to the mechanisms of Merchiston, however, you can be very proud of their achievements thus far. The boys who went home this weekend for the first time since arriving at Merchiston, will have possibly endured a difficult “returning” on Monday morning and I do know it would have been difficult for you as well.
