Pupils and teachers of Scarinish School in 1912-13

Note the lack of shoes on many of the children. The school was built as part of a programme to build several new schools on the island in response to the Education Act (Scotland) of 1872, which replaced church-organised schools with state-funded education. Scarinish School was closed in 1974.
