2015 – What does it hold in store for us?
St Andrew's Night Dinner, Brisbane, Australia
Former pupil Leslie Alexander attended the annual St Andrew's Night Dinner in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, along with 360 other guests, at the invitation of another former pupil of The Gordon Schools, John Melvin. John addressed the haggis, as he had done for some years at this annual function in Brisbane. Sadly, John Melvin passed away in Brisbane on 14 April 2013, aged 71 years, after a short illness. John is pictured on the left in the first photograph along with Leslie Alexander (right). John, a Civil Engineer, formerly of Coniecleuch, Huntly, attended The Gordon Schools and left in 1960.
