Rector 1984-2000 – Mr C M O’Brien

Mr O’Brien joined CHS in 1984 and faced both problems and opportunities resulting from the continual change in education in the 1980s and ’90s. He also faced the transition for the exam systems, from “ordinary” grades to “standard” grades etc. He announced his retirement from the school just before the Christmas break in 1999 to take up a new position as a Councillor in Stirling.
