New School for Cairneyhill

DUNDEE COURIER THURSDAY 9 FEBRUARY 1922

ANOTHER NEW SCHOOL FOR FIFE

BETWEEN CROSSFORD AND CAIRNEYHILL

Fife is to have another new school. The Education Authority yesterday decided to proceed with the erection of a school between Crossford and Cairneyhill, near Dunfermline, for the accommodation of pupils from these two villages. The new school will comprise five classrooms.

The position at Crombie was also considered, but it was agreed to take no action until the Admiralty decide whether Crombie is to suffer through the reduction of armaments.

Dear blog reader

The school described above was in use until 1980/1981. As a family we moved to Cairneyhill in July 1977 and so I actually attended the school mentioned above for 3 years.

Here are two photos of the old school, with the second being people leaving the school on the last day (source of photos: ‘Cairneyhill Residents Are Proactive Facebook group):
