A photo of High Blantyre Primary Pupils(?) in 1973/1974. Shared by former High Blantyre Primary teacher, Margaret Hewitt. Do you know any of the pupils? Can you remember this tie , prior to the introduction of the blue and black colours in 1974.
I think it may have been a temporary class from another school, being educated at High Blantyre Primary whilst their own School was being built (Glenlee?). There are other photos taken at HBP with kids, but nobody seems to recognise them.

Carol Murdoch Jones I dont think its High Blantyre primary as it was navy tie with thin pale blue stripe when i left in 1974.
Carol Murdoch Jones I was at high blantyre primary from 1968 until 1974 and the tie was navy with thin pale blue stripe throughout. It mightve changed later though
George Hay Thanks Paul, I was at the new primary for a year but can’t remember the stage. Probably not there long enough to see anything on it… The tie was definitely navy though with light blue stripe, I was at the primary from 67 to 74.
Jim Cochrane I dont think this is High Blantyre Primary, we never had a Tie like that . I was at both schools from 1969-1976 . I seem to remember blue flooring in the hall or stage . stage wasnt very high.pretty sure there was no red curtains either.

Sorry folks. I did teach at Logans after I left High Blantyre. Old age is creeping up! Was there for a year and a half until I left to have my first baby.
