Hero Alan inspired reunion
Former pupils of Castlehead High School are on their marks for a reunion in memory of teacher Alan Meldrum.
After passing away last year from Alzheimer’s disease, one of Alan’s former pupils, Scott McGeogh, is welcoming anyone taught by the inspirational‘drilly’to a sports-day themed reunion event at the school on May 5.
Scott, 45, said:“Alan Meldrum is the sole reason I am a PE teacher. He spent weekends, evenings and lunchtimes going above and beyond for pupils, while producing amazing results.
“This is will be a testimony to how well-loved he was at Castlehead.”
Totally overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, Alan’s son Andy, 49, thinks the event will be emotional.
“To see all of the effort Scott and others are going to is just amazing,”he said.
“Ironically, my dad wouldn’t like this kind of thing as he was so modest.
“My mum Jean, brother Robert and I would like to thank everyone involved. “I’m a very proud son.” For updates on the reunion follow www.facebook.com/ events/148520652356402/. Organisers are currently appealing for help from florists. Email email@example.com for more info.
