Send In Your School Photos For the Galleries
Welcome to our School Days pages where we are building an archive of school pictures of Caithness.  If you have any pictures from days gone by or even recent ones you would like to share then send us a jpeg file or loan us the picture to scan.  If you have a list of names great but if not we will ask if anyone remembers the people in the photo to add to it.  We will acknowledge all who send in the pictures. email  large photos to bill@caithness.org

We will do some repairs to damaged photos if we can before putting them on the web site.

The Schooldays Photos Success
Old school photos can now be shared over the Internet.  We have growing number of stories and thanks from grateful ex-pupils and relatives from around the globe now after seeing the photos.  Relatives who have seen someone for the first time.  Former schoolmates who have left the UK many years ago.  Folk who have found a parent never having known them.  People who have lost their copy of the photo or who never had it and now get a copy.

Wick Old Parish
Centenary 1830 - 1930
Several old pictures are contained in this booklet reproduced in the church pages.

School Reunion Pages

The Sea Fishing Project
Photos collected together by Hillhead School pupils of their family connections with fishing.

Staxigoe 1920 Group

The Reunion Pages are another growing area with pictures of people both now and in their earlier years at school.  From now on we will link the early school pictures in this section.
Many of the pictures will arise from the events themselves and be current ones.  So you can see how everyone looks years later.

Wick Scout Reunion
The reunion has created a section of pictures from the 1930's 1940's and 1950's as part of their tribute to the late Johnny Yuill who was a member and ran the troop for many years.  Many pictures have the names of the boys and leaders.

Any more Guide/Brownie Pictures out there?

Girls Hockey/Netball Teams would also be appreciated. 

Any other groups or individuals with pictures are welcome to have them displayed on the web site.  Just contact bill@caithness.org

We will in many cases repair damaged pictures before putting them on the site free of charge.

If you are looking for old school mates in the UK a great site to try is Friends Reunited
