Keith Primary School Memory Blog

Link to the Keith Primary School Memory Blog websiteThis website was created to collect memories of old Keith Primary School buildings (Junior and Senior School). The new school opened on the site of the Senior School in February 2012. The “Green” School built in 1864, which was the Junior School, is now empty awaiting alternative use. Read over 350 memories by current and former pupils of the school going back to 1920s. Listen to the sounds of the school bell and the children “walking down” the corridors. There are numerous pictures of the two schools inside and out along with the story of Moving Day. In addition children have added some thoughts about the new school too.
