Hume Primary School All Ages 1950-51

About this memory

Marlene Murchie (back row, third left).

The school had one teacher who taught a single class of five to ten year olds.

“Hume School closed in the 1960s when the children were amalgamated into a local town (Greenlaw) school. The school was the centre of the village and really was the start of the demise of the village community when pupils were educated elsewhere.” – Marlene Murchie (2002)
