Your "Webmaster" has given himself the daunting task of digitally
scanning those copies of "The Philologian"
which he has in his possession. This may be rather akin to painting the
Forth Bridge in that it could be a never ending task. However, I am sure
that many former pupils may find the contents interesting and in some
cases embarrassing when the authors read some of their early efforts in
the field of literature. Without going totally out on a limb and making
promises I cannot keep, it is my hope that over a period of unspecified
time I will be able to scan all those copies of the school magazine which
the Association has in its care.
Reading these magazines before scanning took place, I am astonished by
the quality of the writing and also the memories of the various events,
I was a part of, have invoked.
I hope that I may have done the same for many of the readers.
The scans of each issue of "The Philologian" are in Adobe Acrobat
format and you can download a free copy of Adobe
Acrobat Reader V. 9.0 by clicking here to read these. Please
be patient, some of the scanned copies may take a little while to download
to your computer.

of when the world was perhaps a better place.
