Today marked the anniversary of the death of Henry James Campbell who provided a legacy in his will to found a school or a hospital. Thankfully for us the decision was made to establish a school and Campbell College was founded in 1894. 

To give thanks to our founder, Pipe Major Angus, Year 14 played Campbell College, composed by OC Grahame Harris (10321) and his with Cathy. Angus played the melody at a slower pace in recognition of the solemnity of the occasion. Ne obliviscaris




Additional events are taking place this week to celebrate the Legacy of Henry James Campbell, which can be found in our events section.
