I was there from 1976 to 1980.
I remember Mr.Lyndsay the P.E.
teacher who had a cricket bat called" the jasper".
I believe the school closed, i hated it, as i was bullied.
so i just stayed away. I did make one or two friends there,
i don't think the teachers were very good, but that could well be me
not applying myself. i was in a horrible class.
But i am sure your memories of school were better than mine.
i can't remember any old teachers.
Elvis the music teacher. But every school had a music teacher called Elvis.

Hi Purplefan,
I'm a wee bit older than you, l went to Possilpark Secondary in 1964 through 1967. Left in the summer of 67. I also attended a very good school for a year in that period, l know it was a good school because it was Approved!. Anyhow, when l was at Possil that was before it amalgamted with High Possil, l started in the old building, the new building was'nt quite ready in 64. I left Glasgow in 1977, and the first time l came back was in 1997. I drove up Saracen St. and couldn't believe the school was gone. as was most of Killearn, Stoneyhurst, and Allander Streets. I have to tell you though, that our music teachers were a Miss Mackinnley, Mr Walker, and a guy who looked like Rolf Harris.We also had a science teacher who was a bit of an oddity, her name l can't remember, her nickname however was Fanny Bunson. She had a moustache, l kid you not!
Cheers
Foxy

our headmaster used to walk about with one of them old school teacher capes on and
even had a hat with a tassel on it.
He was like a bat roaming the corridors.

They did that when l went there too, the heidie was a Mr Orr, and his Deputy was another Science teacher, a Mr Maclean, they always wore the gowns, can't remember the hat though. Mr Orr, was a wee guy, with big stickie out ears, so naturally we called him "World Cup Wullie" He was a nice wee guy though, unlike MacLean he was one of those "Belt them" fanatics
