These are some of my family’s photographs of the upper primary classes at North Walls Junior Secondary School when my mother taught there 1948-1955. There were three composite classes, from age 5 to age 15, and three teachers, Jacob Moar, Mary Inkster and my mother Tess Ross, with almost 100 pupils between them at times. Read more about the school.
You’ll find my other North Walls school photos from the 1920s and 1930s here and some others on the Orkney Image Library. Advanced search as below works best: select Hoy as parish (yes I know it should be Walls!!) and School as Album.
