Holy Cross Academy – The Life and Times of a Catholic School

School reunions are often regarded as rather awkward, embarrassing events, but in 2007 a very unusual school reunion took place in Edinburgh. It was to celebrate the centenary of a school which no longer existed – Holy Cross Academy – a school which had closed in 1969, nearly 40 years previously. Hundreds of former pupils – the youngest in their 50s – attended to celebrate the fact that while no longer in existence, the school had made an enormous contribution to society and to their lives. |inline
