The two people I can think that are missing from the picture are Alan Croy (who I think joined Sweyn sometime later in Primary 6/7) and John Scolley - don't know where he was that day.

I think the woman on the right was an art teacher, Fiona Mary Slessor Marr, named after her great-aunt, the explorer!
