My husband, Jim Corse, recognizes a couple of the named people in this picture. Does anyone know of a photo taken about the same time (early 1940's) of the Stenness school children?

I started school at K.G.S. in August 1939 and can say that I know/knew most of the pupils in this photo.
All of them are/were older than me,so I can safely say that this picture must be dated 1938, give or take a month or two.
