Secondary school pupils of the millennium are being called to their first formal get-together – the 40th reunion in 2023.
If you were born in 1983/84 and were either a fourth year school-leaver in 1999, a fifth year leaver in 2000, or a sixth year leaver in 2001, attending the Nicolson Institute, Lews Castle School or Sir E Scott School, then the weekend of 7-9 April 2023 should be in your diary.
Organisers of the 40th Reunion are looking to get people booked for the reunion weekend, with tickets now for sale and spaces to be booked by 17 December if possible.
The 40th reunion website at https://heb40.co.uk has all the information on booking and planned events and there is a Facebook group where a large number of the year group have already been in touch.
The 2023 Reunion Committee are working hard to plan a weekend to remember, with a reunion dinner, charity raffle and dance to live music at the Caberfeidh on Friday 7 April.
During the day on Saturday 8 April, Sgoil Nan Loch have organised a family fun afternoon from 2–5pm and in the evening there’s to be an informal ceilidh at Stornoway Golf Club, with a DJ and partners made very welcome.
The weekend closes on Sunday 9 April at the MA Macleod Memorial Hall with evening fellowship at 8pm, a chance to enjoy the company and hear the testimony of friends.
Organisers say: “The reunion weekend is also a way for us to raise money for local charities and we'll have more information on this coming soon.
“We look forward to seeing you all on Friday 7 April, and we hope you're looking forward to it as much as we are!”
