Hi Bertie. Nice to see the old faces from so long ago. It certainly makes you wonder where the years go. Do you remember the time Jessie Munro "lost it" when the strap went missing from her drawer. By the time she went to get Mr Rae it had somehow found its way back. Anyhow, happy days. It was good to see you the other week after so long. Take care and all the best, Alex.

I recognise Miss Munro, but cannot recognise the pupils after all this time, my cousin Joan also went the school, at the same time as me. Comment left on 23 September 2009 at 12:44 by John Freestone
was looking at the 1911 census and came across Jessie Munro (Bobbins) aged 16 at the mains farm cottages, a student teacher. Born Cromarty. also there were 7 families living in the cottages (total of 30 people.) including my mother (Nanny Jack) and sister Mary (Low.) parents Donald and Grace relation to Jessie that i know of. Often wondered where she came from. Comment left on 16 February 2012 at 20:39 by Ian Jack
Hi Ian. I remember Jessie Munro always reminding us of how proud she was of her father, who was a ploughman at the Mains and how difficult it was for her to attend university in those days. On the classroom windowsill she had a brass figure of a horse pulling a plough, of course one of her great heroes was Burns. A memorable teacher.
