Peffermill Tin School

"Here (above) is an old piccie of the wee thin school, from 1951.
It only had two classrooms, a Jannie's room and a Teachers' Lounge, plus toilets.
Naturally, the children's toilets were of course, outside!  There was also a small rain shelter, in case of rain during playtime."

Here is a photo taken inside the school in 1950, as the children ate their lunch:
