“I am so proud to have had the privilege of being schooled at Merchiston. A number of the principles I have applied in my business had their roots in my Merchiston schooling days. Well done for keeping up the tradition and standards this wonderful school is known for. Merchiston forever hip, hip, hip hurrah.” - Wayne Coetzer, Oyster Box managing director

I am particularly proud to also have been a Mudrat. I first arrived at Merchiston as a very young and nervous Standard 1 boy in 1945 and I finished my days there as a Standard 6 boy in 1950. - Mike Fraser

“To think of my Merchiston days … I finished Standard 6 in 1949 before moving to College. The school was in Burger Street at Commercial Road and I have many fond memories of those days.” - Dr Malcolm Forsyth

“I look back with gratitude on my days at Merchiston. What wonderful foundations were laid there – discipline, team spirit, love of learning, respect for seniors. May Merchiston continue to set an example to the whole world and may Merchistonians everywhere continue to respond to life’s challenges with a cheerful, Ready Aye Ready.”

Kim Shippey, well-known SABC broadcaster from the seventies and former Dux of Merchiston.
