Just wondered if any of you have ever heard of a booklet, possibly published
by the Mull historical society, which contains the following passage:-
At the beginning of the 20th century almost 100 pupils attended Creich school.
All the children walked to school, and if they got wet, their clothes would be
dried round an open fire, fuelled by peats which the children brought from home.
The children were taught in English, but the language of the playground was Gaelic.
Every pupil brought a "piece", oatcakes or scones, to eat at morning break and at
lunchtime. Each school day began with a bible reading, prayers and hymn singing.
The girls were taught sewing while the boys were taught navigation and woodwork.
As well as sound instruction in the three R's, the headmaster, Mr Yuille, was noted
for his teaching of music and nature studies."
I'd like to know the title and if it is still available to buy.
