Decline and Mothball

Martin Parr's photograph of the teacher and pupils of North Ronaldsay Primary School was taken in 1998. Now, almost 20 years on, read about the future of the Orkney island school in The Times. Fair Isle, which was featured yesterday, is a few miles to the north. Both islands are hoping to increase their populations. A 'moth-balled' school ready-to-open for its next pupil(s) is surely an incentive for a new family to consider resettlement.
