Burgess Lunches Reminder

Garry Stevens No Comment

Places are still available for the following lunches:

We are pleased to announce that newly admitted Burgess Professor Henry Ellington has kindly accepted an invitation to be guest speaker at our lunch on Wednesday 2nd August at the usual venue of RNUC..

The title of Prof, Ellington’s talk is “Teaching Primary Pupils about Industry”

In 1986 Prof. Ellington was one of many organisers of a major collaborative project introducing problem based learning into the Region’s Primary schools. Prof. Ellington will describe how the project was set up, and run, and he will then show a 25 minute video that was made of it. He will then conclude by describing how he carried out a full formal evaluation of the project as a result of which important follow up work in this area was carried out throughout the Grampian Region.

Wednesday 13th September – Opportunity to meet the new Lord Provost at Aberdeen City Council, Town House, location will be Town & County Hall.

Wednesday 4th October – Andy Buchan from Scottish Fire Service, a day in the life of a Station Officer, Disaster Recovery

Wednesday 1 November – Burgess Tom Scotland will speak about Aberdonian surgeon Sir Henry Gray. Gray was probably the best surgeon to serve his country during the Great War, and one hundred years ago this month, he was consulting surgeon to the British Third Army at the Battle of Arras when he revolutionised the management of compound fractures of the femur and reduced the mortality rate from this wound from around 80% to less than 20%.
