North Walls School?

I really don't know about this photo at all. I'm guessing North Walls school, around the 1930s? If I was to guess anything else, it would be that the girl 6th from left, second row from the back, is either a Baikie or a Hamilton. Anyone able to shed any light? The photo was one of many from my granny Nettie Baikie's (nee Hamilton) collection.
