Hi
Don Cairns here, I went to St Louise Primary School in Arden, from 1958 - 1965, Then on to Bellarmine Secondary, in Pollok, from 1965 - 1969, ( great memories of both of the Schools ) Sadly both Schools are now Demolished, ( and it was not me who done it ) ( as the Wee Boy said )

Hi Don, nice to have you on the boards. Like you, both my primary and my secondary schools have been demolished. Enjoy your stay on the boards – hopefully you will find it interesting.

GG.

I attended Garrioch primary school and North Kelvinside Senior Secondary (NK), during the 50's and left NK part way through 1964. I also lived in kelvinside Ave. so NK was real handy to home.
I am not too sure what happened to garrioch but I beleive NK was demolished.

My first school was Finniestoun street, 1951 in Anderson, then moved to Barlanark and was bussed to Quarrybrae, Crail street, Shettleson, then to Lightburn later to become Cranhill, 1957-61 left through boredom but had the opportunity years later to go the Queens College, which was known as the Dough School, That set me on my career path and taught me to appreciate education smile.gif

Had Coyle for science and Lynch. Carrol for English also Smiddy for maths Monsewer Lavelle for French, Eddie M'Gaughern for Latin, Mr Rossi for art. The hiedmaister was McNeill of Barra, who gave Billy Connelly a glowing endorsment when he left and told me he was glad to see the back of me.

Hi Jupiter, big change since I was last in that area taking shots
Got to say the new build looks as if it will blend in the the surrounding tenements

Bye for now,norrie

On my last visit to Glasgow in 2011, I was fortunate to visit my old primary school, Springbank, in Hinshaw Street, Maryhill. We lived across the street at No.43. The building is now used as a community centre. I would have loved to see inside the building but alas it was closed.

I also walked around the site of my old secondary school, NKS, which was demolished several years ago and noticed there were new buildings going up, housing I believe.

It would have been great to see these old areas as they were in the 40s and 50s but unfortunately I only managed a trip back to Scotland in 1988 for the first time since leaving in 1963 and all the old tenements were gone by then. Oh, to be able to go back in time, only briefly of course.

They (St Cuthbert's Staff) might be further ahead if they would only answer their eMails. I tried some time ago without success and gave up trying to contact them directly. Going by a circuitous route via Glasgow Corporation Education Department (gawd knows what they call themselves now) and asking them to call the current St Cuthie's Head Person availed me nothing either.
Good luck with their pursuit. You might direct them to friends reunited for class pictures et cetera. rolleyes.gif
