There are many different pupil leadership positions at Merchiston, but the Captain of School and two Vice-Captains are perhaps the most prestigious, and together they are called the Triumvirate.
Before the Easter holiday, the Headmaster announced the Triumvirate for next academic year:
Captain of School - Mackenzie
Vice-Captains of School - Oscar and Robbie
"I am delighted to have been made Captain of School for the upcoming academic year 2021-22. This has been a position which I have always aspired to be. The prefect teams and I will work together to make the transition as smooth as possible back towards “normal school life”."
"I am delighted to have been appointed as a member of next year's Triumvirate. I am very much looking forward to working with the Headmaster and the very strong prefect team. Myself and the rest of the Triumvirate will work hard to give it our best shot in the next academic year and are all excited to have this opportunity."
"I am really excited about being a prefect and in the Triumvirate next year. This is something I have always wanted to achieve since I was in Pringle and I feel very honoured. I am really looking forward to working with Mr Aitchison and the Rogerson boys to make it a fun and enjoyable year."
