I was also junior sport champion cant remember the year anyway that year we had Jack Milroy & Ricky Fulton aka Francie&Josie giving that prizes out by mum did not have a camera with her so we don't have any photos of that time. If you where there at that time and have any photos get in touch cant remember many people from that time except Joe Conway here was from Irvine, Jimmy&Ronnie Faulds from Bridgeton, And 2 other brother from Aberdeen called Robertson if you where there at that time it would be good to hear from you.

Hunt them down; use the newspapers, the T.V. any media. See about legal aid. If they abused you don't let them die in peace. Get others in the same boat to help you. Don't give up. Make sure the world hears you.

Hi I was in Kerelaw Abused school early 1980, I was wondering if any one out there was in Thyr when I was in Thyr. Convicted Beast teacher Matthew George gave me the Nov name Mongol John, so people will never forget that name be good to hear how many X pupils remember me. Thank you John.

Ex-teacher arrested over Kerelaw School abuse claims

A former teacher has been arrested in connection with sexual and physical abuse allegations at a former residential school in Ayrshire.

Matthew George was held by police investigating historical allegations at Kerelaw School.

The 67 year old taught art at the school and secure unit, which closed in 2006 following a police probe into incidents of abuse.

He is expected to appear at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court later.

A report is to be sent to the procurator fiscal.

The school was originally run by Strathclyde Regional Council and its successor, Glasgow City Council.
