Highland Folk Museum - 23

It's now time for school! Today we are attending Knockbain School.

From Kirkhall parish near Inverness, this single teacher, timber and corrugated iron school was erected beside the existing late 1800s stone school. Known as the 'Green Hut', it comprised a classroom, teacher's room, and toilet.

When we arrive we must hang up our cap and gabardine, and get ready for lessons. We will get the strap (tawse) if we are late.
