Mrs E. McGlennan (Hairy Ma) taught Geography at Lendrick between 1952 and 1975.

Robert Richardson wrote "Mrs McGlennon was a wonderful teacher, could also pinch hit in English and History if I remember right. I guess I was a somewhat scruffy kid at school, a fact which she once managed to raise a good laugh about, at my expense. How it came about was as follows..... I was taken seriously ill with appendicitis, and was eventually rushed to Bridge of Earn Hospital late at night by Mr and Miss Grieve in his Jaguar ( a beautiful car ! ) Anyway, I was duly operated on, and spent around two weeks at the hospital, which was how I know that Mary Richardson, a former pupil, was a student nurse there. On my return to the school, my first class was Mrs McGlennan's. I remember knocking on the door ( old Room 2 I think ) and being commanded to enter ! Mrs McG saw who it was, and said " Oh, its you, well, welcome back I suppose and take a seat.... you look disgustingly clean !!! " She was, if I remember, a very ardent supporter of the SNP. We used to have morning assembly, rollcall, sing a couple of hymns and then finish up with any announcements for the day. Quite often we'd be invited to choose a hymn for the day. The one that used to totally freak her out was I think Hymn 640, "..and did those feet, in ancient times walk upon England's green and pleasant land.... !! " The braver of those amongst us would frequently request it to be sung. !!!"

"I picked up your web site about LMS quite by accident. My mother was Mrs McGlennan. She retired in 1975 and died aged 88 in 1994. I live in Dollar now, having lived in London, North Wales and South Wales - moving back up here in 1974. I was a pupil at the original school, Naemoor, from when it opened c.1947? until I left to go to college in 1956. My mother, having been widowed in 1945 taught locally until about 1952 when she started at Naemoor. I have probably got more recollections of Naemoor School pupils and staff than you have since you were of a later vintage. If you want any please get in touch with me and I will try to help - I will try not to be libellous in my recollections! It would be helpful if you could set me specific questions
