This photo shows a stone that was used to sharpen styluses for writing on slate. This was the girls' slate stone. It is almost perfect but the boys' slate is all worn and wrecked. It is positioned at the side of the old school. It looks like it has hardly been used. This photo was taken by Erin Malcolm, S1 pupil at Kilmarnock Academy 2017.
