'It is of a class at Kirkwall Primary School in May 1977. Can anyone put names to the children?'

My (now obviously mistaken) guess is that it is Primary 6, as I was in Primary 7 at the time- Steven

I think this is the same class featured in picture #372.

6th from left, back, could be Andrew Greatrix, 2nd from right, back, could be Stuart Leslie and I think that the boy next to Stuart on the end is Ian Ross. This definately appears to be a split of 2 classes for some reason

6th from left rear row is Andrew Greatrix. Whatever happened to him? Also could be 2 classes as there seem to be too many for one class. Thanks for all the help re the names. I only knew a few of them.

Well in answer to Marion Mcleod "What ever happened to him" Him being Andrew Greatrix.Well aparently he became a profesional artist, got married ten years ago and now lives on the south coast in Kent.He sails his yacht from there where in the same harbour he knows a few other Orcadians that have ended up in the same part of the country, and you know what..I still consider Orkney to be my home.I do visit on occasions and I was best man at Roy Firths wedding a couple of years ago.One last thing I would like to add is a very big thankyou to Marion Mcleod for the for all the encouregment back in those dodgy days of job hunting.Oh and perhaps she could say hello to Peter her son for me "Kes ave no seen him fer a peedy while tae!"

Hello to everybody. back row far right Alistair Rendall (ally bongo!) (Ian Ross wasn't in that class - Lesley); next is Stewart Linklater; Georgina Thompson is between Peter and Andrew. Douglas Southerland is between Muldoo and Graham Young; the only one left is back right and he is Colin? who was excellent at arithmetic and left about p7.
