I think it is the KGS and a lot earlier than '85. It looks like Willie Dunnet, Bennie Thompson and other Hope ones but also Willie Nicholson, John Stephen, Stewart Drever, John Cameron.

I am thinking KGS not the Hope School as there are a number of Kirkwall faces in this. Maybe around 1970 /1971

14 of these are from my great P6 class in the Hope, 68-69. Some of the girls came from Burray in P7. Said farewell to their P7 teacher, Mrs. King, yesterday.
