I think this is P4 ie 1968-69. I was in one of the other classes.

Jane is quite right - it's 4 Sweyn with Mrs Fotheringhame. In the back row, we have Frank Campbell next to Andy Rendall; next to Glynis is Terry Harcus (Fanning), then Peter Clunas. Next to me (Kerry) is Paul Wicker; In the middle row, next to Andy is Bryce Wylie; next to Catherine is Ann Tulloch; next to Catriona is Gavin Mainland; at the end of the row is Norman Russell. In the front row next to Linda Laird is Colin Rendall; next to Cathy Campbell is not Peter MacDonald but Simon Latcham; and at the end of the row is Willie Garrioch.

A couple of points on this photo as per my recollection. It was definitely Primary 4 Sweyn with Mrs Fotheringhame but I have the year as 1967-1968 as it was the year Mrs Fotheringhame retired and the year I moved to Holm (we had a joint going away party). My complete list of people as I wrote it down with apologies for any spelling errors.
Back Row (left to right): Andrew Rendall, Frank Campbell, Glynis Deerness, Terry Harcus, Peter Clunas, Kerry Warman, Paul Wicker, Alice Rendall, Ewan Donaldson, David Foulis.
Centre Row (left to right): Andrew Sutherland, Bryce Wylie, Alan Work, Catherine Wylie, Ann Tulloch, Shirley Stout, Catriona Campbell, Gavin Mainland, Kenneth McConnochie, Norman Russell.
Front Row(left to right): Marion Ritchie, Tommy Kirkpatrick, Linda Laird, Lawrence Rendall, Cathy Campbell, Simon Latchman, Linda Scott, John Muir, Sheena Grant, Willy Garriock

I am pretty sure that this school photo was taken in the 1967-1968 school year because I moved away (much to my dismay) to Essex later in 1968.

I think Gavin Mainland was actually Gavin Main, his father was manager of Boots the Chemist and lived next door to me.
