The great Man’s 250th birthday was celebrated on Saturday 30th October, with a ‘National Service of Thanksgiving for his life and work‘ in St Giles Cathedral, followed by a procession from Parliament Square to the Scott Monument.

The school was represented by Head of Biology Gordon Rutter (doubling up in his capacity as Officer to the Convenery of the Incorporated Trades of Edinburgh), along with RHS Club President Ian R C Cowie and Alastair Allanach. Following the service, these gentlemen were privileged to join the procession to The Scott Monument, via Parliament Square, The Mound, Galleries Precinct and Princess Street Gardens.
