If you were born in 1978-79; were a 4th year school leaver in the class of 1994; a 5th year leaver in 1995, or a sixth year leaver in 1996, of The Nicolson Institute, Lews Castle School or Sir E Scott – then this year is your 40th Reunion.

Registration for the celebration weekend is now open. With this year being a bumper intake – something very special happened in 1978! – make sure you book your place as soon as you can and definitely before 5th March.

Go to www.reunionhebrides.com for all the information on booking and the programme. There is also a Facebook Page for the year group and we have already seen some photos surfacing of many fresh-faced, soon-to-be 40-year-olds, from days gone by!

The 2018 Reunion Committee are working hard behind the scenes to make sure that this year’s reunion weekend is the best yet and one to remember.   The programme for this year includes:

  1. Friday 30th March: Caberfeidh Hotel, from 4pm – Reunion Dinner, Photographs, Charity Raffle and Dance with Catch 22
  2. Saturday 31st March: Back Community Centre (1pm – 3pm) – Family Fun afternoon, Sports Events (Football match and hopefully a Netball match), games for kids, food.
  3. Saturday 31st March: Eleven @ Caladh Hotel (7pm) – buffet, disco by Keith Morrison. Partners are welcome for this evening.

As well as creating an event to celebrate our 40th year, a key part of the Reunion weekend is to raise money for local charities. This year, the committee have agreed to support Befriending Lewis and Crossroads Lewis with any funds raised from ticket sales after costs and through a Raffle.

Keep an eye on the Facebook pages for prizes, but we have already secured 2 return tickets for flights with Loganair!
