Kirkwall Grammar School - 2nd Year 1977

Kirkwall Grammar School - 2nd Year 1977

I was at Kirkwall school for calendar year 1977, that's me second from the right on the back row. The other 2nd year class photos is already on the website: picture #2494

35 yearse later I could still name roughly a third of the people today, but I'll leave it to others who will know everyone to post up the complete list. Robin Johnston.

Still one unknown which is annoying.Have not seen photo since school but recognised her face straight away but name escapes me. Sorry!
