Pupils across decades invited to have a final visit ...

Former pupils and staff of Burntisland Primary are being given an opportunity to have a last look around and say goodbye before the autumn move to a new building.

A series of three open evenings which are intended to give the wider community, former pupils, parents and staff a chance to say goodbye to the 150 year old Ferguson Place site have been planned for the coming weeks.

Julie Anderson, head teacher and a former pupil herself, said: “We are encouraging people to come on particular nights so that they might bump into former classmates and teachers but no one will check birth certificates, so really anyone can come on any night!”

If you were a pupil (or staff member) in the 1930s, 40s, 50s or 60s than you are encouraged to visit on Thursday, May 8 between 3.30-6.00 p.m.

If you were there in the 1970s or 80s, then your night is Wednesday, May 14, 5.00-8.00 p.m. and if you were there between the 1990s and present then it’s Tuesday, May 20 from 4-7.00 p.m.

“It will be lovely to see as many people as possible come along for one last time before we close at the end of term,” said Mrs Anderson.

“All buildings except the nursery and old dinner hall will be open.”
