The ‘School Book’ by Tarves teacher

Published on Monday 26 November 2012 17:48 Ellon Times

A FORMER teacher at Tarves Primary is getting set to launch a book about the school to celebrate the school’s 100th anniversary.  James Stott retired from teaching in 2011 after seven years at the school.

He said: “It just so happened that the school’s centenary came at a time when I was retiring from teaching. I had spent seven very happy years at Tarves.

“To mark the school’s one hundred years, I set about finding out about its history. Current pupils, former teachers, head teachers, staff and former pupils provided contributions. The result is fascinating. You can read about the school through the words of those who actually attended and worked in it. I am indebted to the Tarves Heritage Group for providing access to information and resources – there are many interesting tales and lots of lovely photographs.”

The book costs £14 and will be available in Tarves and in Ellon. There will an official launch in the Tarves Heritage Centre on Sunday, December 9 between 2pm and 4pm.
