    Hi! Went to Hillhead Primary School upto 1983 but instead of transferring to WHS moved away due to fathers work. Would love to hear from anyone in my primary school class, it`d be great to know how everyone`s got on and what their all doing now. The class i was in included John Frame, Colin Clarke,Lyne Macauley, Corky, Elaine, Coco, Donnie, Roy, Ewan Macangus, Karen, Mari, Audrey, Kevin, Andrew, Tracey, etc.

    So did you stay on until P7 with Mrs. Anderson, or did you leave before that? Do you remember the Flying Lessons with Miss Robertson (P6)?

    I know where a few of those ones you mentioned are btw.

    Don't know if they would want me to pass on that information to a stranger, though. So . . . who are you? And where you at?

    "Anonymous" is the account that mops up the posts of all the deleted users.

    The start date is based on the unix timestamp of "0" which converts to 1st Jan 1970.

    "Someone" was having a good old trawl through the archive to find this thread as it was started in 2002

    I went to Hillhead school too. I had Miss Robertson in Primary 7 and witnessed a few "flying lessons". I was too scared to step out of line in her class so just got on with my work (cowardly, I know). It was 1979 when I was in P7 and I went to Wick High in 1980. Hillhead school was great and the teachers were pretty cool.

    Miss Robertson was hard but fair and in my opinion the best teacher I ever knew. People always knock her, yes she had a temper and wouldn't hold back if you stepped out of line (in todays world she'd probably have been struck off and locked up, but that's more a reflection on how things have changed for the worse rather than the better), but she was actually a very very good teacher with teaching methods that were second to none. I had and always will have a lot of respect for Miss Robertson, and I'm someone who was often in trouble at school.

    I know I've got some photos of all the gang mentioned here, but they're in the garage somewhere under a mountain of junk. I'll have to have a search for them when I get the time.

    Miss Robertson was mad but I found her quite fair tbh. I fell foul of her on the 2nd day in her class- a half hour screaming session, today she would have been laughed at for going off on one like that but then....

    I remember some of the names on the OP, they were all 2 years older than myself, they mustve been the last class to have been belted by greasy garry but we had one guy , Kenny Green, who got his own personal flying tuition one friday morning before going to Inverness
