#10 - 1967

Formed in 1966, the Sixth Form Society was established with the intention to be "a means of promoting and enlarging the cultural interests of its members". By 1967, according to The Court, the Society had listened to talks on such topics as "Greek Architecture", "Ecology", "World Population", "Probation Service" and "Glasgow and the Firth of Clyde". In addition there had been heated discussions on very controversial subjects.

The Society was ran by students and overseen by David Welsh as the president (who held his post for 22 years, stepping down in 1988). An account of each meeting was recorded by the Secretary in the official log book.

The Old Viking Society was also going strong, we love these minutes from a meeting in October. We had no idea that the OVS v 1st XI Cricket match had been going so long!

1969 was also the first year that house colours were awarded. Can you put names to any of the boys in these house photographs from 1967?
