Hi Lynne,

Steve Slater here. Was great to see you organising a wee get together but I'm working in China now and sadly won't be able to make it :o(
Would be great to get back in touch with some of the old school!!
Has it really been 25 years!!
My email address: stevitoslater@hotmail.com

lynne duncan
22-Apr-08, 22:40
went to the open night tonight, boy did we have it good 25 years ago
was hopefully going to organise a tour round on the day of the reunion if anyone was interested, now, think i would be too embarrassed to take you lot round, but no I'll get back on the soapbox and will hopefully get a tour round the school so i can enlist you lot to help support the new campaign to get a new school built, because this one needs a huge amount of TNT to help it.

07-May-08, 16:39
Dunno if anyone had tried this - looking for folk on bebo and my space? A lot of the girls will be married/taken up partners name, but the lads may be on there? Maybe worth a try?

Linda and Stuart Roberts - Stuart is in Glasgow somewhere, dunno where though, but might be able to get a message to him via others. Linda - well, thats me! I'm in the North West of England now, and have just noticed this thread (looked in hope of a reunion for ages,then gave up lol). Not sure if I can make it - will have to check school holidays etc for the kids, but if I can make it, I'll be there. (Not that I had much time at WHS as we left at the end of 1st year :( but remember NPS quite well :D)

regards,
Linda xx

hi everyone, this letter will hopefully be in the groat on friday

Dear Sir,
We are organising a school reunion for all pupils who started Wick High School in 1983 and anyone who joined thereafter. This will be 25 years since we started WHS. We have distributed most of the invitations for the reunion which will be held on Friday 25th July 2008 (the night before the Gala Procession) in Francis Street Club, Wick. There is a link on caithness.org reunion section which contains a list which we haven't managed to track down yet. If you are one of these pupils or are turning 37 this year and haven't received an invitation yet please get in touch. Please contact us if you are interested in going and return money by 30th June, thank you. Contact details - Lynne Duncan, 9 Broadhaven Road, Wick, KW14RF. tel 01955602486. Yours Faithfully Carol Smith and Lynne Duncan.



main gist of it - there are some folk that we haven't caught up with so hopefully this will let them know and also for some idea of numbers going return money by 30th june.

also if anyone has photos of us lot when we were at school, send us a copy and we'll put them up on the night, and email them into the org

Hi

I don't have any photos of high school classes but I do have a primary 7 photo of Mrs Murray's class at Wick North Primary just before they went off to "big school" - it makes for a very scary experience I can tell you! Anyone want to see what Lynne looked like?!!

lynne duncan
08-Jun-08, 17:31
hey! all the curls are still here thank you! definitely more gray and a lot more weight but otherwise still the same!!!!

can't wait to see if everyone looks the same or different - not long to go!

could 'fat bob' be a woman!! The plot thickens.

Stumbled across this site and topic whilst googling my name.

Would've loved to have seen all the old faces after all this time, but whoever chose the date was a little inconsiderate (some of us are in England and my kids school only breaks up for summer holidays on Friday 25th [mad] ).

BHG
03-Jul-08, 01:34

Are you being serious there David? If you are, I am truely shocked that you used to be a (dare I say it:p) pig (and before I get shouted at, you used to call them that yourself once upon a time, and I mean it in fun and not to offend).

I bet you still to this day hold the Wick High record for most times setting off the fire alarms (elbow through the "break glass" was your speciality if I remember rightly), and I can also remember you being p-rick happy when it was poppy time (in todays world, we'd all be classed as bullies:confused). Can even remember being in your corner when you were fighting in Macrae & Dick's car park one dinner time and you lying to the (I'll be more PC this time, lol) Policeman who appeared. I could tell more but shall refrain.

Not having a pop by the way David, I haven't got a bad word to say about you, you were one of the good uns, and at the end of the day we all got up to mischief (I know I certainly did). Just recalling what we were all like back then and how funny it'd have been if you're being serious there as you'd have no doubt at some point had to deal with kids doing similar to what we all got upto (although saying that, it's a whole different world today, the kids nowadays are doing drugs, carrying blades and shooters, happy slapping and all kinds, makes us seem like angels in comparison).

Anyway, I hope life is treating you good, it would've been good to see you and all the old gang on the 25th but I've only just found out about this reunion tonight (bad organisation if you ask me, but then that's women for you:p) and our school only breaks up on 25th.

Unbelievable that a pin p-rick should be censored and need a work around.

Some of us use language in every day conversation. We don't all want to be a part of the politically correct society that is dictated to us by others who act as though butter wouldn't melt in their mouths and who consider themselves to be self appointed members of the forum police.

With a username like that, I'm guessing it's Coco. Am I right?

Looking through the list I hardly recognise any of the names as I remember everyone by their nicks. Have the nicknames stuck all these years and those that had one still known today by the same?

05-Jul-08, 15:42
Be very shocked!!

i have been in the job for 17 years and would like to think that my time spent in 'mischief masterclass' stood me in good stead and kept me a good un.

times have definately changed and not for the better, i'm not sure who you are as the BHG doesn't give much away but i would been keen to chat more. send me a pm. sorry you can't make the reunion. take care for now.

Admit it.................you just liked being squashed in the corner:lol: . One thing's for sure, you wouldn't want to play that game now, what with the expanding waistlines, you really would be squashed.

I didn't even know there was a park at the top of Owen place, but that should give you a further clue as that wasn't my area.

have been having kittens today, not getting stresses much, had organised a dsisco ages ago and then last night the lad phoned and said that he wouldn't be available for the night aaaaaaaaaaaaagh!, so frantic scramble today and on the 3rd attempt have found another disco wheeew!

posters up around the town to remind folk that reunion is approaching fast.
at the moment we have around 40 folkes coming for definite, with a lot of people having said to others that they are going but not actually telling us so hopefully all those lot are coming.

format if its okay with you lot is a disco, must persuade him not too loud too allow us to reminise. was going to organise a buffet but due to the responses not going to.

looking at the views to this post wondering if we'll break 10,000 before the reunion is done

going to phone the high school tomorrow to see if i can get photos of the teachers, mybe make up a sheet to see if anyone can name them, if their's anyone in the high school just now

hope to see a lot of folk there

Awww, looks like a fun night was had by all. So sad to have missed it. Maybe we should have another one in 2011 for all us turning 40? I really wanted to come up but circumstances didn't make it possible.

looking at the photos, I see only a couple of familiar faces, though i recognise many names. Marianne Richards I did recognise, and also Gary Farquhar's head (he was the first boy I ever gave a valentines card to in primary school, and I put love heart sweets in it!!!) :lol: But as I've been away for so long, I canna remember faces from school anyway! Then and now pics would be so much easier for me lol. So, if there is to be a mega 40th birthday party - then and now pics, and name badges please! [lol]

Oh, and if anyone has class pictures (or any pictures!) from our years together in North Primary and 1st year in High School, (and while some of us were in sea cadets too!) can you pleeease put them up or email me a copy? I can't find any from school days or sea cadets, though my mum might have some stored in the attic some place - not that she'd be able to find them though! Many thanks! (If you wanna email me them, pm me and I'll let you know my email address. many thanks!) xx

:) Hi everyone. I had a great night and quite glad I went now. It was a poor turnout but we all made the most of it. Thanks Lynne for organising it. It was great seeing all the old faces again and there was a couple I couldn't put names to. There's some that didn't know me (must be cause i'm so quiet). **Hope your reading this David [disgust]** Speaking to womble on Sat night and he'll try to make the next one.

Aye, a good night - didn't get the chance to speak to everyone I wanted too but enjoyed it! Poor showing from the locals though - worked out just about everyone there latterly but still a couple of people I couldn't place at all. Well done for organsing it Lynne - must have put a power of work into it.

The Elvis karaoke was good - well done Gordie, but Johnners attempt to get everyone to do some teuchtar dancing wissna quite as successful!!

And thanks to Tracey for showing my wife pictures of me with hair .....

Just signed up, thanks Lynne for organising the reunion, you must have put in a power of hard work.

Apologies to those I didn't recognise, I will the next time, I promise.

Looking forward to the next one, although can't believe I could be 40 then!

And Beggz make sure to make this one, hope to see you soon.

thanks again for a great night.
it was a brilliant night that went flying in! i was only going to go for a wee while and not drink as i was going out the next night as well, before i knew it though it was 1 o'clock and id had a fair few!!:lol:
i didna realy mingle enough so we will def need another night so i can make sure i catch up wi everyone!
was not at all a clique SDS,coz i wouldna of been in it if there had been one,wasnt at school often enough!!if it came across that way on here it was only a few off us that have probably never caught up since leaving primary and it was good to hear from old friends,you missed a good night out.and as for some people not getting an invite,well i think the organisers did well to get that huge list of names,never mind how they got as many addresses as they did,i certainly couldna o remembered so many,so if you was in that year,then that was your invite,not getting a wee card through the door should not of stopped anyone coming,wur 37,not 7!!

i look forward till next night,put my name down now!:lol:

Thank you Lynne for a fantastic night, has been said, mainly by those who couldn't make it, that it was a poor turn out. Didnae feel that way at all. Not enough time to speak to everyone as it was! Cat, thank you for posting that last post. Couldn't have put it better! See you all in 2011 (if not before) XX

Jiffy
29-Jul-08, 16:45
You know what Cat, you just said it all. I'm still waiting to get my invite from my sis (she filed it somewhere) but I still made it on the night. I know we see each other alot but it was still good to get the crack, and it definately wasn't a clique. Lynne you can put my name down now cause I'll not be missing the next one either.

ForfarLoon
29-Jul-08, 21:07
I knew the reunion was on and thanks to Lynne for contacting me (though I think your email address may be wrong) and I've no lived in Wick for two decades. I agree 2011 is far too long.

In fact next year will be 20 years since our year would have finished 6th year. Anything for a party.

hi all,

i know it's not like me but i will stoke the fire, THE LOCALS WERE SHITE!!

there were no 'CLIQUE'S IN WEEK' friend's are friend's no matter what!!:mad:

we all have skeletons in the closet but who cares!!! friendship and memories are far more important and will last a lifetime.

it was great to see everyone that turned up. I even managed to catch up with a couple who never made the night due to a fear of loose lip's.

thanks to lynne for all the effort. I would turn up any time to see old friends.

Remember - "Life is not a dress rehersall"

David Campbell

Yes - "The Gift"








thanks again for a great night.

And there you were telling me the other week I was wrong, I reckon I might be right after all. The username, the cycling proficiency pic, and the bike comment, all have me wanting to put my money on it being Coco. Am I right Gizmo?



when shall we go for reunion 2 - 2011 for our 40th birthdays or for 2013 for our 30 year since starting high school.

and anyone who fancies another one make sure we have your address and we'll add it to the list

I would've loved to have made it last week, so would definitely be keen to recieve an invite should you decide to do another. I know you have to consider the majority and that that'll mean a preference for fitting things around the scottish school holiday dates, but as long as I get notice I'll make the effort to be there.

Well said David and Cat. For me, I just found out about the reunion too late and my circumstances were such that I just couldn't make it, but I would've loved to have been there and certainly didn't get the impression from the posts here that there was any kind of clique.

30-Jul-08, 11:16
There were a lot of piccies taken on the night, is there a chance that everyone could send in their shots so an album could be available on the site, especially the group shots?

Re: charges of a Clique and many were from the North PS. There were 8/9 of us from Pultney PS so I can't accept that. Also given that I left Wick over two decades ago I don't think I could be described as being one of the so called "clique".

I was really looking forward to this party and had been aware of it since the start of the year and yes I was dissapointed by the turn-out but that didn't lessen what was an extremely enjoyable night and given the comments from those who couldn't make it for one reason or another, it seems the next reunion will be better attended.

Fair enough, I fully understand that some people wish identites to remain private (even I elected for a username that wasn't too obvious, what with these pages being picked up by the SE's) , so I apologise.

Why not have a reunion 2 and a reunion 3??? Seems we're all up for a reunion of any kind and any excuse will suffice!!! [lol][lol]

Just thinking ahead - where did the ex-pats stay when they came up for reunion 1?? Might be an idea if we could get discounted rates for someplace and converge en-masse so the catch up isn't time limited? Book me in now for both reunion 2 & 3 :lol:
