The Gordonian Association works closely with the College to offer former pupils the opportunity to stay in touch with former friends and classmates, encourage opportunities for social interaction, engagement with pupils, sporting activities, news and stories.
Together with the College the Association operates an impressive programme of lunches and dinners around the country to provide the opportunity for Gordonians to meet socially and share memories. These occasions are enjoyable allowing Gordonians the opportunity to share memories of days spent in the Auld Hoose and reignite the shared values and experiences from the years of schooling.
