Matron's Quarters 1872

In 1872 this description of the sick room was published.

'Sick Room - The uppermost floor, which has a lofty ceiling, and a portion of the contiguous apartments, are appropriated for the accommodation of the sick boys. These are fitted up with hot and cold baths, and every convenience. There is a resident sick-nurse. This department of the Hospital is entrusted to the direction of the medical officers; more especially to the Surgeon.

Jan, our  current School Matron, is leaving today after 15 years at George Heriot's. We would like to wish Jan all the best for the future.
