SCHOOLDAYS

1950 - 1973

The photographs on this page are taken from the years 1950 to 1973, when I am led to believe Darroch School officially ceased to exist.  In the early 1950's Class photographs were abandoned in favour of individual portraits. *

If anyone can identify any of the pupils or teachers in the following photographs please contact me.  In addition if you have any school or school related photographs please let me know and will be happy to copy and include them in this archive.  Please give the unmarried names of any ladies included as that is the name that most former pupils will recognise.  Most of the photographs hereunder have been numbered so just quote the number on the relevant photograph.
