confused daydreaming

Have been trying to remember the names of the teachers at Inverbrothock - the original school at the top of St. Vigeans Road -. and I am not doing very well. I am particularly trying to remember the teachers who were there while I was there 1950 - 1962. I was in the A's (summer intake) The 'B's were the winter intake. Can anyone help?

To date I am remembering 6 of the 7 that I had;

Miss Macdonald - there were two of them - one took the A's and the sister took the B's
Miss Rattray
Mrs. Dow
Mr.Mitchell - had his belt out every Friday
Mr. Robertson - took the class swimming to the Baths in Marketgate - think it was Mondays
Siging teachers were firstly Miss Libo then Mr. Dilly

Reading back what I have just written I realize my memory is better than I thought but would still appreciate help from anyone who remembers the name of my missing teacher.

Vivian, Wasn't there a Mrs Kitto, she was ( to me ) an older woman, she had grey hair and I'm pretty sure it was at Inverbrothock I had her as a teacher.

I remember too Miss Keith was a teacher at Inverbrothock when I was a pupil, before she moved on.

Hi Vivian - teachers I had at Inverbrothock when I was there from 1955 to 1962 were: Mrs Lowe (primary 1, married to Doug Lowe of Herald family), Miss McDonald (primary 2, tall and thin, elder of the two)mMrs Kitto (primary 3)Mrs Mudie (primary 4, from Carnoustie) Miss McDonald (primary 5, sister of primary 2 teacher) Miss Jamieson (primary 6, later became Mrs Edwards and died only last year, I think), and last but not least Miss Keith, primary 7, she of the venomous comment, and pointy finger, and feared by all of us. Many a Dale boy wilted under her ruler !! My brother, who started the year after me, had the following teachers: Mrs Cunningham (primary 1) Miss Rattray (primary 2) Mrs Allan (primary 3, very tall lady with pure white hair, tied back in a bun) Mrs Dow (primary 4) Mrs Stewart (primary 5, and in the Herald this week) Mr McDonald (primary 6) and Mr Mitchell (primary 7). There were another 2 male teachers during our time there, Mr Tulloch and Mr Dinnie, though I was never in either of their classes. Mrs Wilson was a visiting teacher who gave us drawing, and Mrs Powrie, and Miss Hood were the music teachers. I can vaguely remember a PE teacher called Miss Cushnie. I had happy years at Inverbrothock, loved the academic side, but hated the knitting and sewing!!

Hi Flintstone,

Mr. Dinnie retired as headmaster of Letham school and still lives in the schoolhouse there. Miss Cushnie was a very good golfer and played many years at Elliot. Mrs. Lowe, who was a wonderful person and very fond of children died a few years back in Helensburugh, suffering from Altzheimers.

Also remembered from my time at Inverbrothock - Headmaster Mr Joss, then Mr Robertson. Janitor was Mr Hayward, (died suddenly)then Mr Lownie. Clerkess Jean Smyth. One of the student teachers was Margaret Thompson, who went on to become headmistress at either Timmergreens or Muirfield (correct me if I've got the location wrong). Greig's was the school shoppie on one side of St Vigeans Road,(before Holmes') but I cant remember the name of the one up near the school, on the same side of the road as the school.
