Here's a retirement picture of Miss Catherine Miller from Ardrossan Academy in June 1973.She's shown with the rector Mr Partridge and the then deputy head teacher Mr J Allan.
A lovely lady who I remember well, because she was my form teacher in second year. But she only spent the last four years of her career at the Academy, and she'll be much better known to people who were at Saltcoats Public/ Jacks Road, where she taught for the previous fifteen years, and where she had been a pupil herself.
There may even be a few who remember her from Stevenston High, where she spent the fifteen years before that; she had a career of forty-two years in teaching all told. A few more details from the article that came with the pocture...she was also youth organiser for Dalry during the war; served on the Church of Scotland General Assembly Committee for the education of youth; and was much involved with schools drama locally.
