My parents asked me to try and establish in which year Elmgrove was opened and a Yahoo search turned up your wonderful site. The class 2 (1961) photograph gave me quite a start because I am in it!
I am the little angel at the end of the middle row on the left. My name is Jim McMullan and I attended Elmgrove between 1958 and 1965 going on with several fellow pupils to Grosvenor.My address at the time was 8 Dunraven Crescent were my parents still live.
The only other person I can positively identify is the little girl in the white dress with her arms folded at the end of the middle row right. Her name is Marie Cochrane and she was one of the others who went to Grosvenor.
Other pupils who at the end of their time went to Grosvenor were Charle Nixon,John Coulter, Billy Gault ,Roy Ferguson and Patricia Campbell. Unfortunately I cannot recognise any of these people from the photograph.
The teacher who had the biggest influence on my early life was Mr.Hunter for whom I along with many others will always be grateful. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
