  1. I have many fond memories of my classes with Mrs McAlpine, Mr Monaghan and latterly Mrs Harper.(1972-1979–I think!!)
    I remember our netball team needing boys to play as we didn’t have enough girls. A loose mouse that someone had brought to school when we had a netball match
    Sports day with prizegiving of books, climbing trees in the playground and skinned knees.
    Warm milk, the mouthwash lady and Singing Together with a weekly radio show. The great Christmas parties and making our own sarnies-corned beef and tomato ketchup!!
    I’m not sure whether my grandpas family attended but I know my mum-Nanette Thorburn did. Would be interested to keep in touch.
