1973/74 High Blantyre Primary Staff


1973 High Blantyre Primary staff wmThis picture brings back a lot of memories for me, as many of these teachers were still at my primary school when i started shortly after,

Pictured in 1973/1974 are the staff members of High Blantyre Primary. Teachers, head teacher and janitor, I’m sure many folks will remember these teachers. I see Mrs Banks, Mrs Wishart and Mr Robinson amongst others.

Margaret Hewitt who shared this photo told me, “High Blantyre staff 1973-74. I was Margaret Howie – second from the right in second row. Was only at the school for one year. Got married at the end of that year and had to change schools. Still have the clock they gave me as a wedding present. Can’t remember names but they were a lovely group of people.”

Can you name the rest of the teachers and staff?
