Local children went back to school in August 1992.

For many it was the first step of their school career, in a year which saw a drop of nine pupils overall throughout the Fraserburgh area compared to 1991.

Breaking that figure down, eight schools saw their roll drop - down 49 overall.

Four primary schools saw an increase in their intake - up 40, while a further two schools saw their numbers remain static.

The North School in Fraserburgh had the biggest drop in its Primary 1 intake with a fall of 19 pupils from 159 in 1991 to 140 in 1992, although the nursery school figure for the year remained at 40.

South Park School saw a drop of 19 primary one pupils meaning their numbers went from 159 to 140.

Lochpots school was down ten pupils.

A further drop was felt at St Combs Primary School where eight less children started in 1992/93 falling to 75 pupils.

However Fraserburgh Infant School saw an increase of 15 primary one pupils, with a further 80 joining the ranks of the nursery.
