This was my first year (P5)at the Holm School after we moved out from Kirkwall. It was so confusing going from a class of 30 to a room where the teacher had to teach four different years at the same time! Our nickname for Mr Robertson was Rubber Belly. I remember he told lots of stories about his time in India during the war. The only people I knew when I first arrived were Charles Sutherland (my first cousin) and Lorraine and Heather Flett who were the daughters of my Mum's (Mary Harcus nee Garriock) & Dad's (Jack Harcus)friends Marion & Alfie Flett. As it turns out from my Dad's geneology research I am related to most of the people in the photo, though I didn't know it at the time!

Great to see a lot of those faces from so long ago - had we not immigrated to Canada (April 1965) - I would have been in the photo with my old classmates.
