Sunday School picnic to Shapinsay

Marion writes:
"The Shapinsay Picnic one is from June 1953 and is of a group of children from the Kirkwall's Paterson Church Sunday School on a day's outing/picnic to Shapinsay.

From those I can remember they are:-

front row - Sheila Thompson, ? [? Marwick], myself [Marion Wishart]
middle row - Wendy Horne, ?, my sister Pauline Wishart, ?
back row - [? Mrs Foster], ?, ? Cursiter & sister Evelyn Cursiter.

Can anyone identify the rest?"
