Summary - Archie MacKechnie's schooldays in Jura..

Archie went to school in Knockrome [Jura] where there were many pupils. He left at twelve. They would be in school only for six summer months. The schoolmaster was untrained - later sent to Glasgow University by Board of Education but died soon after. Children took a piece [snack/bread] and peats to school. Many children went on to have further six months schooling in Glasgow when they left Jura school. Archie knew of 43 sea captains who came out of Jura.
