The Old Grammarians’ Club

In 1928, The Old Grammarians’ Club was founded in classroom B19 of Paisley Grammar School. Its founders were of a generation which remembered all too well the horrors of the First World War. The Club was born of a need to ‘keep in touch’ beyond the school years, and support and promote the wellbeing and interests of Paisley Grammar School. As was expressed by former Club President, the late Enid McIntyre, it existed “to form a lasting bond of union among the former pupils of the ancient school whose interests it has ever at heart.”

There is still a great sense of belonging to the school, and there is no greater proof of this than to witness the pride and the unashamed tear as “Oriflamme” (the school song) is sung by all who now and always call themselves Old Grammarians.

Activities

The club is associated with the Old Grammarians golf club and they are always seeking new members to join them. For more information please see the Golf section of this website.

Today’s club

The club runs three events a year for its members; two luncheons, and an Annual Gala Ball. These events allow the society to interact with is members and their contemporaries. The highlight of the year is always the Annual Gala Ball, where Grammarians past and present come together to dance the night away, while meeting old friends and making new ones.

The Future

The club would mean nothing if it weren’t for the loyalty and dedication of our members. It is thanks to them that our events go from strength to strength, and that we can continue to contribute an Old Grammarians’ Prize to two of Paisley Grammar School’s Sixth Year pupils every year. We look forward to what the future brings for both ourselves and our members.
