Note of Interest

According to an article in the Jubilee magazine, under the heading "Friends of the School",
one Major Cassells..... "made the school a hobby of his. The school museum and library benefited from his gifts. In February 1902, he presented the handsome telescope that is fitted up in the school observatory, making ARA probably unique amongst Scottish schools in this possession".
