Dalbeattie Primary School Book

History Of Dalbeattie Primary School Is Still Available!!!

1876-2015

This book was collated because the Primary School may close once the Dalbeattie Learning Campus has been 

built. It was felt important to record and document the history of the school.

Along with the book there is a DVD of class photographs, taken over the years.

This book is free to any pupil who attended the Dalbeattie Primary School

and can be picked up from

Dalbeattie Museum.

Reflections of Old Dalbeattie    

New DVD called Reflections of Old Dalbeattie


Our exciting new DVD has been launched. It is called

"Reflections of Old Dalbeattie".

Tommy Henderson reflects on some of Dalbeattie's history and along with his commentary are old pictures of Dalbeattie.

This DVD costs £5:00 and all proceeds go towards the running costs of our museum.

 

If you have not visited the museum, then this year put in on the top of your “to do” list and spend an hour or two reminiscing.

 

 

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at Dalbeattie Museum.
