THEY’RE all due to qualify for their bus passes this year, but pictured here in the spring of 1963 are the primary seven pupils from Burnfoot for their final class photographs before going up to Hawick High.

Now, one of their number, Ann Fenton (nee Farmer) is trying to arrange a get together of her former school pals.

“A couple of years ago I met someone I used to go to school with for the first time in nearly 40 years and that gave me the idea to get as many people as possible from our year together,” explained Ann.

“I’ve since spoken to a few people and they’re really up for it so it should be a happy occasion.”

Ann is hoping to arrange the event for later this year and nyone interested in a reunion should contact her on 07872 550 717 or email
