The Old Philologians Association

The School Magazine

"The Philologian"

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.
