Brechin High School plans to celebrate its 555th anniversary next year. One of the big events will be a formal dinner with a number of prominent speakers to be held in the School on Saturday, September 29.

Over £7,800 was raised by the North-East Angus Scanner Appeal Fund. The bulk of the money was used to buy a foetal scanner for the Fyfe-Jamieson Maternity Home, Forfar. The extra £1,300 will be used for another suitable project.
