Gregor Ross, my uncle, was the headmaster there in the 60's. A very kindly man, during visits he used to allow me to play in the school gym so I could let off steam.

The photo brought back many nostalgic memories of 4 great years spent in Balintore and area. Great friends bring great memories, and that is my experience. I went on to become a headmaster in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where I currently reside, with my wife, Carol. We have 3 children and 3, soon to be 4, grandchildren. Following retirement from teaching I went into the ministry, and 2 years ago I was ordained as a Minister. My sister, Mayreen informed me of this photo.
