Wardie Primary School Class

"I was at Wardie school from 1950-56, then I went on to Trinity Academy, 1956-60, then  to The Dean Nursing College where I trained as a nurse at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

I can give you the names of a few of the pupils in this photo including Bruce Johnstone who has already contacted you."

I've sent an email to Jeanette, telling her that it would be good to receive some of the pupils' names.  When I receive her reply, I'll update the table below.
