A message from the President.
We have an active club which is open to all former pupils of Whitehill old and new school. The objective of the club is to bring together former pupils in a social atmosphere and to foster links with the current school staff and pupils. Our main events are an annual lunch and dinner. The lunch, held in a Glasgow hotel in October is an informal affair and is a good opportunity to catch up with old friends. The dinner, held in March, also in a Glasgow hotel, is more formal with spouses, the current head teacher and some senior pupils are also invited. At the dinner we will have a notable former pupil as a guest speaker, and a lifetime achievement award is presented to a former pupil who has made a significant contribution in their chosen career.
In keeping with changing times there is no specified dress codes for these events though most like to take the opportunity to dress up a bit for the dinner.
We usually have one other event during the year related to the school or surrounding area. Recently these have included a visit to Glasgow Cathedral, guided by former teacher and noted historian James MacAuley, and a walking tour of old Dennistoun.
Although designated as a club, for practical reasons, there is no requirement to make a membership application or pay an annual subscription. If you are interested just contact the secretary by email or other means and request to be included on the mailing list for the newsletter to be advised of current and future events.
I look forward to meeting you soon,
Iain McLean, President.

See Lockdown No.5 in Newsletters.
We all now realise that Covid-19 or Corona virus is is a worldwide pandemic which knows no boundaries. It affects rich and poor, young and old, but also apparently healthy people.
Whilst we all must follow the guidelines, isolate and maintain distancing when out for essentials or exercise, it is also important and beneficial that we maintain contact with relatives, friends and neighbours.
We now have access to various means of remotely keeping in touch with others, by telephone, email, using the other social media platforms available through the internet and, don’t forget, even by a good old fashioned letter or card.
As members of the Whitehill FP Club we are fortunate to have a ready made network for maintaining contact. Please use this and keep in touch with your fellow former pupils to see how they are faring - if they need any help or assistance or just to have a blether and cheer them, and yourself, up.
Send us your thoughts, views, news, and stories for the News Letter – things about your childhood, Whitehill or what you did after you left the school. From talking to you at our FP lunches and dinners, I know there is a wealth of stories and experiences out there. Now is the time to share them with us.
