I think it’s fair to say Tom Hermiston had a wonderful 100th birthday.
The school has received the following intimation.
At Home Day
Tom will hold an open house to meet all his old friends on his very special day.
From 1:30 – 6:00 p.m.
3 Holly Road
23rd September 2016.
Every FP aged 50 – 80 will remember this amazing man. If you can’t visit on this special day, a birthday card would be most welcome.
Tuesday 14 June 2016
Our new Head Teacher, Mrs Helen Gray, will be with us, so please show her your support by attending in large numbers.
On May 3rd the inaugural FP Ladies Lunch took place in the Royal Tay Yacht Club. 40 ladies enjoyed an excellent main meal and coffee/tea for £10.
Everyone met up with friends they had not seen for years and the noise of chatter and laughter was a clue that a good afternoon had been had by all.
The guest of honour much loved Music teacher Miss Darroch now aged 97, reminisced about her time at Morgan Academy Last period on Friday, in the Hall with 100 senior boys featured prominently!
Judging by the comments and emails received it would appear that this lunch will be repeated for years to come.
The next lunch will be Thursday 14th July and FP ladies of all ages are welcome.

OLD GIRLS’ Lunch
Over the past few years many “Old Girls” have indicated that they would appreciate the opportunity to share an informal lunch on a regular basis.
Our first Ladies’ Lunch will take place at the Royal Tay Yacht Club on Tuesday 3rd May, 12.00 for 12.30. Subsequent lunches will be held on the first Thursday of alternate months throughout the year.
The Royal Tay Yacht Club has proved to be a very successful meeting place for the Men for a good few years. Two monthly seems to be the optimum to enable them to come from further afield yet is frequent enough to maintain the connection but we don’t need to stick to this frequency or even format.
Like the men’s lunches they will be independent of MAFPA and are open to ALL “Old Girls”. Please pass on details to all your FP friends.
If you would like to join us on 3rd May, please contact Jinty (McNaughton) Martin, who has agreed to liaise with the Yacht Club.
At the same time, please also provide her with your maiden name, school House and, if you telephone, your email address if you have one. Otherwise, please let her have your postal address so that she can contact you again.
