|Title||The Binning Coutyard, Beath High School|
|Notes||In December of 2004 our new school building was to be officially opened. The new building has two lovely garden courtyards and on my suggestion it was decided to name one of the courtyards after William Binning, a pupil at the school who died in the Great War in1916. This courtyard is now the focus for our annual Remembrance on November 11. It is the place where we remember all our former pupils and staff who have been killed in war “ most recently Jamie Kerr in June 2007 and Paul Lowe in November 2004. Both boys were 19 - the same age as William when he died “ and were killed in Iraq. They were soldiers in the Black Watch. The Binning Courtyard was officially opened on the same day the new school was officially opened by our local MP, Gordon Brown, who met and spoke to members of the Binning family.|
2nd Lieutenant William B. Binning (1896 - 1916), Scottish Rifles 9th Div. Machine Gun Corps, 28th Bn.
