If you recognise any of the faces in these photographs shown above or below from when, or since, you were a pupil at either The Nicolson Institute or the Lews Castle School in the late 1970s, you will likely be reaching the big 6-0 in 2023.

A 60th reunion is being organised for those that attended either school in the following years:

 S1 (1975/76); S2 (1976/77); S3 (1977/78); S4 (1978/79); S5 (1979/80); S6 (1980/81)

Two events are planned:

  • Friday 28 April 2023 in the Stornoway Town Hall at 7:00pm

Meet and mingle with welcome drinks, three-course sit-down meal, table wine and soft drinks, music and laughter guaranteed; cost £55/head

  • Saturday 29 April 2023 in the Stornoway Golf Club at 7:30pm

Nostalgia quiz, evening buffet, live music, raffle raising funds for local charity, “plus ones” welcome; cost £20/head

Two similar events were held in 2013 for the 50th reunion and were very much enjoyed by those who attended.  Ten years later, the organising committee for the 2023 events are reaching out to friends and former classmates, hoping that as many as possible can attend both or either event.
