I lived in Lochore and went to Crosshill Primary [ 1957-1963 ] and then went onto Ballingry Secondary School until I left in 1967/68. William Gray was the headmaster. Ive been in contact with a few people who were pupils at those schools during those years on Friends Reunited.

Just looked at the photos for ballingry high school.......recognised a few faces from the 'unknown' year :))) especially Thomas (Tam) Ewans - my neighbour and best friend when I was growing up! Happy days. Wondered what had happened to some of my class mates who seemed to 'disappear' during the summer of 1974....Andrew Foley, Ann I know they went to ballingry high!!!

Taught Home Economics from1976 to1987. This is a great site - brought back lots of memories. Still teaching, but now with Visual Impairment Service. Sometimes come across former pupils, who usually say nice things!!
