Pupil

"I attended Trinity Primary School, January 1956 to June 1962."

Teachers

"Here is a photo of the Trinity Academy Primary School teachers from the early 1950s.  My father taught in the Primary School before transferring to the Secondary School as a mathematics teacher from circa 1954 to June 1962."

These are the teachers that I recognise in the photo.  I wonder if any Toffee Apple FPs can identify the remainder?"

"This photo would have been taken at Bangholm.  That's where the Trinity Primary School classes were."

I also remember Miss Hancock, Mr McAlpine, and Bremner who I believe was Miss Campbell's replacement as Head.
