Help needed on some of the teacher’s names.
I thought I had more of the Seaview teachers but now coming to post this is all I could find
Teachers of Monifieth Public School 1960-61
This picture was taken during an exchange with U.S.A.
Monifieth teachers Miss Violet Fisher and Maureen Graham were in the U.S.A.

These photograph bring back many happy memories of my time at the old Seaview Primary School in Monifieth.
I vividly remember, (pre-Christmas 1960??), as a special end of term treat, we were shown a cine film of Disneyland in America by Miss Pearson. This must have been filmed by one of the exchange teachers mentioned? I also had the privilege of knowing sisters Dorothy & Constance Rattray.
My Mum, Jean Donaldson (Nee Thomson), knew Mr Scrymgeour from her days at Arbirlot Primary School. (Did he also teach in Arbroath High School?)
Another special character at Seaview during this period, was the Janitor, Mr Munro and Tommy the tortoise.
My father, Stanley Sturrock Donaldson, also taught at the Secondary School in Monifieth during this time.
Thank you for posting these photographs!!
Best wishes, Ronald Stuart Donaldson

I recognise the teacher sitting next to Miss Greame (Graham) to be Miss Buist, later known as Mrs Cairns. I used to work with my dad for her at her house next to Milton garage towards Grange Rd and she was his teacher when he was younger. Hope this helps.
Yours, Allan Hall.
