Can we please try and avoid nicknames - some of which were not necessarily the kindest.

Many in the photo are sadly no longer with us.

Brings back many memories - they don't make teachers like that any more. A few more names: Miss Hamilton, Miss Docherty and Mrs. McAndrew (all English), Mr Bissett and Dr. Milne (physics), Mr and Mrs Dargie.

Think it would be 1980 Dave, thats the year I started, Mr Dargie had left by that time but he was there when the primary 7s had their visiting day before end of term.
I met his sister by chance in 1987, she was working in a library in the outskirts of Vancouver, there ye are now!!!!!

The Dargies lived in a flat in Queen St, that was subsequently bought by our Morris. When he stripped the wallpaper, he found some messages they had written to each other. Some of them were very saucy :D

Two to the right of Mrs McTaggart is Miss Woodrow then Catherine Dobbie I think.
OOH did they knock down McCaigs folly.....

Am I right in thinking that Mr. Harrow is the only teacher pictured still working at Campbeltown Grammar? As someone pointed out earlier, it's a shame several others are no longer with us. Perhaps we should be doing a "where are they now?" on some of the other teachers here.
