Sanday school (I think) late 1930s. My mum Mina Cursiter is sitting on the far left. Any more information would be great.

Hi Nancy
if the person that you named is Jeemie Ollie, then it will be Burness School, Sanday. He went to this school with my father before the 4 Sanday schools were amalgamated in 1949. I had Jeemie Ollie as a teacher in Sanday, 1983-4, it looks like him. See photos 27447 & 27450.

Aye that's Jeemie Ollie right enough, but hids at the Central School, wae James Bailie as teacher. J.O. left the Burness School and gaed tae the Central. The Lass right below him is Maisie Muir, Lodge.
