This photograph is only of the "Big Room". I think the teacher is Mr Laurence A W Tulloch and on the back row extreme left is Robert Eunson. Continuing along that row the 3rd pupil is Bobby Garrioch and 4th is John Foubister. No names for row three. Row two on the extreme right is Anna Garrioch and on her left is Margaret (Daisy) Eunson. On the front row left to right:- Maggie Jane Kirkness, unknown, unknown, Rita Garrioch, Lillian Donaldson and Agnes Eunson
Any more names ?

Any more pictures like this out there? My grandfather Ernest Bichan went to Tankerness school. Born in 1904, I suppose he might have been there some time between 1910 and 1920? I'm not sure if any of the boys in this photo look 7.
