Re: Ardrossan Academy former pupils: academic successes 1963-71

I had a sneaking suspicion that you would have the answer, PT; thank you. Seems a lot more likely than the other suggestion!

Ardrossan Academy former pupils: academic successes 1963-71

Beginning in 1964, the Ardrossan Academy school magazine began recording successes of former pupils at universities and colleges. At this stage they were recording only final awards. Of necessity the list is in arrears, that is it refers to the previous session, 1962-63. I've expanded some of the le...

Re: Craigie College of Education diplomas : 1968, 1972-74

Here finally is the list for 1974. The Herald certainly didn't limit its list this time; it included everyone, even from as far afield as Edinburgh, the Isle of Skye, and Yorkshire ! So I've taken the decision to only include those from North Ayrshire. CRAIGIE DIPLOMA WINNERS A warning that if there...

Re: Craigie College of Education diplomas : 1968, 1972-74

Here now is the list for 1973. Once again the list is limited but it's a little mystifying to see Prestwick apparently included in North Ayrshire ! CRAIGIE COLLEGE DIPLOMA WINNERS Students at Craigie College of Education, Ayr, were presented with their diplomas at ceremonies held on Monday and Tuesd...

Re: Craigie College of Education diplomas : 1968, 1972-74

Thanks for all that information, folks ! We now come to the list for 1972. There are more people from the Three Towns in this one, and once again they're highlighted. The list also seems to be not as comprehensive, with no students from Ayr or Kilmarnock included, for example. Another thing to note ...

Re: Craigie College of Education diplomas : 1968, 1972-74

Sorry everyone, I should have made it plain that it was a teacher training college; situated in Ayr I believe. I was guilty of rather assuming that it was still going and everyone had heard of it.

Craigie College of Education diplomas : 1968, 1972-74

This is not strictly schools, but education; but in any case it's relevant to schools because those listed will have gone on to teach in Ayrshire primary schools, and in particular some of them in Three Towns schools. I've included diploma students from other towns for that reason; for example, incl...
