Schoolchildren - c1953

Sent from Australia by John MacDonald - can you put names to the faces or pin down the year?
Picture added on 01 January 2003
Some of the faces in this early Cromarty school pic are.. Douglas Kelly, John Macdonald, Linda Brewster, Raymond Maclean, Donald Macintosh, Douglas Cooper... and many more... Anyone still in Cromarty recognise themselves in this group shot?

I see myself 5th from the right in the front row. I think Ruth Newell is next to me. That picture must be two classes as Kenneth Macaulay was a year ahead of me. I think Heather Hossack is third from the left and John Watson is third from the right in the middle row.

The more I look at this photo the more I think I am seated 2nd form the end on the right of the front row next to Vi Jack. I don't have a copy of this photo but am told by my mother I had a scowl on my face! I attended Cromarty School about 1951/52 not sure for how long.

This is probably Miss McKenzie's primaries 1 and 2, photographed in early summer, towards the end of the 1952-1953 school year, with a few early starters for the1953-54 primary 1( the class that is pictured several years later in No. 74 [1957] ). I think that the girl on the right end of the front row is Jeanette McPhee and the girl two places from her could be her sister Doreen.l

The girl on the extreme left of the front row is Doreen Bassindale.
