I attended the Gordon Schools between 1982 and 1986. I was in Gordon House. I look back fondly on some of my School days. After leaving School, I have had a varied and interesting career, including serving in the Royal Air Force and working as a Prison Officer in Peterhead. At present I work at the University of Aberdeen in the Estates Dept, as the Storeman there. My favourite Secondary School Teacher was Mr Tom Christie, a great Teacher and true Gentleman.

I attended Gordon Secondary School from 1985, never did I think I would end up where I am now, but I do know some of my teachers who made such a positive impact, Mrs Forbes, Mrs Hay and of course Mr Tait, all of whom are no longer with us but if I could I would say a massive thank you
