Next to Margaret Sinclair is her brother Alan then Colin Seatter. I think Denis Scott could be one of the two remaining boys.

After Dennis Scott on right of row 3 must be Jim Sinclair, Graemeshall Cottage who moved to New Zealand. His father was Bill who worked at Graemeshall Farm; brothers Bruce, Stuart and John. Jim was a mechanic ?? with J&W Tait??

In reality, I think this should be Holm West Primary School. I don't know how long there was 2 schools in the parish, but there was also a Holm East Primary School near to Hurtiso. The 2 schools merged into the Holm West Primary School premesis at start of September term in 1963 whilst I was at the Holm West Primary School. The teacher George Brown retired at the end of the school year in 1964. (When I left.) I think he died before the end of that year.
