Hi All Former-Pupils,

I thought I would start a wee thread to list the schools we went to when we were growing up. All you need to do is tell us which school you attended, in which area, and if you want to add anything else ... like stories about teachers and former pupils ... then please feel free!

the first School I went to was St Mary,s Annex,it was on the Maryhill Road across from the Maryhill Barraks,then to St Marys in Duncruin St ,and last but not least to St Columbusthat was in the fifties ,the most pleasant memmories I have are when in st Marys Annex I had a teacher I cant remember his name, but it was an Italian name ,well he had been in Japan and he brought back some things from there ,including shoes that he allowed us to try on and he had a lovely Kimono ,boy was that the most beautiful thing I had ever seen ,glad you brought this up Martin you made me think of some happy times wink.gif

Started oot in Rosevale St Primary.A Miss Bacon taught me to knit.God Bless her .At seven it was deemed I was old enough to cross Dumbarton Rd and go to Church St School.Took my qually at 11 and wanted to go Hamilton Crescent where all my pals went .They took shorthand and typing etc. I had to go to Hyland SS and take Latin and Greek and started German.Big mistake.I hated every minute I spent in that school.I had been on the radio representing my school so I was quite bright but once in the big school didn't learn too much.
Church St School was the school my Mother went to and then me and then my son and as far as I know it is still in operation this day

Like Flim I went to St. Theresa's in Possilpark but in those days it was called Hamiltonhill R.C. School. Then it was on to Garnethill Convent which was run by the good Sisters of Mercy. Unfortunately, WWII brought that schooling to a stop and my life headed in another direction. When we were in Scotland this July I looked for the convent but it had been torn down; only the gates remained. P.S. for Flim. I did get up to Possil and visited Ardoch Street and Auckland Street - described under my post on nostalgic memories.

Sacred Heart Primary Bridgeton 1945 1947
St Robert Bellarmines Primary Househillwood 1947 1951
ST Mary's Secondary (West st ) Calton 1951 1954

Hated school was always "plunkin it " best day of my life was walking out the gate at the end of my sentence.Was told by many teachers ,that I had "IT" but refused to use ' IT " No one special teacher ,to me they were all sadists,with but one mission in life,and that was to make my life miserable.
Finally woke up to education at Adelaide Uni,in my early 30s. biggrin.gif

Well sorry to say , I never thought the school you attended mattered here in Oz , until my nephew went to join the pipe band. Here is the convo , not verbatim , but near enough. " Oh good !! you are a natural on the chanter" " where did you learn to play like that ? " my Granda taught me " "Oh good , well we sure could use your talents " Er !!! whit school did you attend ?? " Bellarmine , Priesthill ,says my nephew" " Oh is that a Catholic school says the Pipe Major
" " aye say's Stevie " OK " the pipe Major says , "we will get in touch with you " Needless to say that never happened"

Posted by: Sheena blue 24th Sep 2005, 10:55am

I went through school with another kind of predudice, my big sister was dux of Burnbrae one year. When I followed her to Craigbank, every teacher said to me " you cannot possibly be Lynne Campbell,s sister" Not that I was dense I just liked to carry on and laugh. But thinking back all our teenage years I carried a bit of resentment towards my sister, we are both now in our late forties and get on great. But just shows you how teachers can influence your life, without even knowing they are doing it.

Hi, folks
I went to St. Columbkille's in Rutherglen ( cringe, cringe-- they'll know my religion!) then Elmwood in Bothwell. I can honestly say that I experienced every emotion possible during those school years-- with a heavy emphasis on fear , and dread! But it prepared me for life, because it toughens you to be in such as hostile environment. I wouldn't change a thing. Both my parents were teachers, and I became one myself, for a while. There were teachers in those schools who should have had awards and accolades for their unstinting efforts. There were others who would DEFINITELY be up for child abuse for their physical and psychological abuse of children.
I am 100% glad that I had the schooling I did. It hasn't failed me yet.
If any of my school friends see this-- HELLO FROM ROSALEEN!

I started school at Annan Academy and came to Glasgow in 1945. Started then at Hillhead Primary and then moved up to Hillhead High from 1948 to 1953. Best teachers I remember were Mr. Easson (Geography and English) Mr. McNeil (History) Miss Gordon (French and German) and Mr. Young (Math) Any one else from HHS?

I attended Auchinairn Primary from 1953 Coronation year until we emigrated in 1958. These wer five important years of your life, where you knew where you fitted into your peer group.
We were in the new Aluminum building built after the war , the qually class were in the old stone building of the original village school.
Class five members took turns (selceted by the teacher) in ringing the electric bell at lunch and and end of school. Also we were we got turns of knocking the Head's door and asking for the hand bell and running over the old part and joy of joys standing in the hall ringing it, so they knew it was luch or end of school. In each class a boy was picked out bring the crate of milk and the boy picked a pal to help then the pal next day pciked someone to help him and so on until every boy had a turn. The things you remember.!!

Dear Rdem
Auchinairn old school is now the Community Centre.There is now a youth club in there . I go twice every month as i am a committeee member of the Auchinairn And District Tenants Association .
I also go as i am also on the Senior CitizensForum .
Sad to say though.the place is falling apart .We could do with a new one ,but it will not be in my time . Aluminium Part or the huts as we called them are all gone .
I went to St Josephs in Cowcaddens then on to St Columbas in Maryhill .Long long before your time .
The old Bishopbriggs school is now the Library .

Day return cost 4/9 and a weeks and at that time a weeks dinnie money was 4/6, so had to get thrupence by raking bins for ginger bottles to make up the fare, but sometimes would just skip on the trains.

I could ramble on for hours, but the wifie is demanding me to bed . *thinks to self* the electric blanket must be buggered and she wanting to stick her cauld feets oan me.

Not stictly a true Glaswegian, but I'm sure by now Paisley should be a South-Western suburb of Glasgow.
School - John Neilson Institution in Paisley from Primary 1955 thro' Secondary, leaving in 1967 to go to Glasgow Uni - that's when my love of Glesca' dialect really flourished.

I went to All Saints Secondary in Barmulloch. When i attended, from 1973 to 1977, it was a brand spanking new building. The same place has gone now to be replaced with a much smaller building, but it holds a lot of good memories for me.
The best of which is a special teacher i had in the English dept was a guy called Mr. Travers. this man was an amazing teacher, and taught us all to appreciate the english language. Sadly, i have heard that he is no longer with us, but his enthusiasm lives on.

From BallindallochNZ:

QUOTE
North Kelvinside Senior Secondary, Maryhill - I went there from Springbank Primary in 1953.  I can remember thinking it would take forever to get to 1957 when I could leave school!  NK (as it was known) was a pretty good school, though I did not really appreciate that until many years later.  Sadly, it has been demolished in the last 2-3 years, I believe.

My mum had died two weeks before I started at NKS and I found it a very daunting place, and all the different classrooms and subjects made it a very scary place at aged 11.  I learned book-keeping, then shorthand and typing, which turned out to be my favourite subjects, and the only ones I excelled in.

Bertha Gunn was my maths teacher for 4 years and it was very sad to hear a year of so after I left that she had murdered her mother.  Although she was a brilliant teacher she had a nervous disposition and I am sorry to say that many of the school bullies picked on her constantly.  She obviously cracked up completely and I believe was sent to Gartnavel for the rest of her life. 

I would love to hear from anyone else who went to North Kelvinside or to Springbank school.

GG.

Hello everybody when I read this topic I had a sudden anxiety attack.[ just a small one] IT brought back everything I had shut out of my life a long time ago or so I thought. I went to St Anthonys in Govan , Mr Smith was my teacher all through school we just did not get along very well [we hated each other] I belonged to a very small elite group in my class we where not the smartest ones in the bunch . We where at times paraded around the room to the tune of I have a lovely bunch of coconuts[Now please dont laugh yet the best has yet to come ] .We prayed a lot ST Anthonys and during prayer you where expected to stand and not move ,well needless to say I needed to use the little girls room , my seat was at the back of the class I was wearing my wellies and [NOW YOU CAN LAUGH]I could not hold it any longer and all of a sudden in the middle of the class room we had a small stream . When Mr Smith wanted to know who was responsible he did not have to look far as I sloshed my way in my wellies out of the room and I never looked back . I was 14 at the time and I never set foot In St Anthonys school again. I left home at age 14 that was 49yrs ago I have never told a living soul about that . I will be for ever remembered as wwwwwell you knowI hope this brings a smile to someone Cheers to all

My first primary school was Martyr's in Townhead [ aka Barony Street] The building was designed by Charles Rennie MacKintosh [ himself a Townhead boy, I believe] so I guess it might still be there.

I went to St. David's [also in Townhead] when Martyr's was closed, then to City Public Secondary. A great old building. I hear it's been demolished now. What a pity. sad.gif

Ended up with a "bursary " to go to Allan Glen's [ it was fee paying in those days]

I thought I would start a wee thread to list the schools we went to when we were growing up. All you need to do is tell us which school you attended, in which area and if you want to add anything else, then feel free!

I'll start us off...

Knockburn Primary School in Balornock in the seventies
Albert Secondary School in Springburn in the eighties

I enjoyed my schools years and worked quite hard to get decent marks, so can't complain. Had some great teachers, including a brilliant German language teacher at 'The Big Albert' named Miss McNiven whose teaching methods were the best I ever experienced in many years of education; sadly Miss McNiven died suddenly a few years after I left, but still fondly remembered.

GG.

I went to Miltonbank Primary in Milton in the 1950's...I loved it there, Mr. Kincaid was our teacher in the qualifying class, everybody loved him, he told us great stories and made learning a pleasure. I was heartbroken when I had to leave to go to Albert Secondary in Springburn in the 1960's. We had a very strict Gym Mistress at Albert called Miss Black and if our bus was late in the morning we had to run up the Avenue (felt like Ben Nevis) to get in the gate before 9am or you got a whack from her big horrible leather belt. All the girls were in love with the English teacher Mr. Kirk, we all had great exam results in his class because we sat quietly, listened to his every word and behaved ourselves.
There was a wee shop near the school gate that sold 'Albert Cake' this was a square sponge cake topped with white icing sugar.......if I remember right it was tuppence....we used to slip out at the morning playtime to buy some. The 'old fashioned' sweetie shop on the corner at the top of the Avenue sold Midget Gems & Tiny 'C' gums and there were always queues buy some...(can't think why because the 'c' stood for cough and that's what they tasted like....cough sweets!). Another shop along Edgeware Road sold hot pies and bridies with home made steepy peas at lunchtime and also frozen jubilees or frozen Barrs.......nae coontin' calories in these days!

My gran lived in Bellrock Court, in the wee pensioners' houses. She moved in when they were just newly built and left there after having a serious stroke - in about 1970?

My old auntie lived in the high flats in Soutra Place. We were put out in Garthamlock when they demolished our tenements in Townhead, so I spent a lot of time at Gran's or Auntie's.

My primary school was St Roberts in Priesthill, i went there when it opened in 1953, I was there when it closed last year 2006. A very emotional day, a few of my old class mates were there and when the ceremony was over we sang a hymn that was traditional at that school when the school holidays started, we just called it the Holiday hymn, we all remembered the words, they had found the music in an old storeroom. Not a dry eye in the hall. terrific. Secondary school was Bellarmine Secondary in Pollok. Loved all my school days, must be terrible if you did'nt.

It started with the words, mother of all the is good and glad all that is bright and blessed, as we have taken our toil to thee, so we will take our rest. Take thou and bless our holiday--and the next bit was latin I think we all had our own interpretation of that bit.
When I visited the school last year the present "Heidie" mr Clancy gave us copies of various documents relating to when the school was opened, and lovely pens with St Roberts on them.
We were taken into the headmaster room, I nearly cried, cause the last timeI was in there 50 years ago I was in 'trouble for kissing the boys in the ashpit, were the boys played footie below the playground next to the tin annexe.
One last thing he showed us lists of all former pupils and what was funny about those lists was that Every child was listed as having a 'mum and a dad' how things have changed eh?.......

Thanks Betty, it is too much of a coincidence as Georgina Bannerman is quite uncommon. Ina Georgina)Gold was married to my cousin Richard Bannerman pre second world war.Their son Richard died prematurely leaving 2 sons I know of, so am thinking this young lady is their g/g/daughter. Ina was one of life's diamonds. biggrin.gif

DEAR STRATSON,my grandmothers name was isabella bannerman,her maiden name had been borland.it was my grandfather who had the name bannerman .he was david bannerman and had a twin called george.my own fathers name is george also. my father has two sisters my aunt mary and aunt margaret.they used to live at 24 templeland road in pollok many years ago.i know that there is not a lot of bannermans around,but the funny thing is my mother was in hospital a while ago and her name is sarah bannerman,there was also another sarah bannerman from nitshill in the ward at the same time.although i am not your cousins grand daughter there may be a connection that i am not aware of,as family drift apart and lose touch.i dont know if this is any help to you .

I went to Kirkhill primary in Mearnskirk Glasgow in the 60's then Craigholme Secondary school in Polloklshields. Have to say I hated school when I was wee but found it better later on. seem to remember being bullied though by a certain girl called Janice... Not a good memory. My mum eventually came and sorted her out !

St. Teresa's Primary (3 Classes burned down - Hooray!)
Annexed to Keppochill Road School (Never thought of that - Boo!)
St. Mungo's Academy, Townhead.

Loved everything surrounding school - Hated school itself!
My education was interrupted for 11 years through
having to attend school. A complete waste of everyone's
time, especially mine!
My mind was usually on what I would be doing if I wasn't
sitting in school.
Never did homework. Not enough hours in the day to do
all of it, so I didn't do any. Took the belt instead!
All over in seconds and that's you free for another couple of days at least.

I went firstly to St Charles Primary, Maryhill and then St Sixtus Primary and St Puis Secondary both in Drumchapel.

Can't say I was ever happy at school, too many clever people there to compete with, including my brother and sister.

Best techers I ever had were Miss Kelly primary 7 St Sixtus. She allowed me to sing!
She aslo tried to teach me to spell by taking the daily dictation from the Glasgow Herald. I learned to spell 'psychopathological' which I now use in my working life in forensic mental health. She also read to us every day at the end of term.

Others were Mrs Lavery, she taught in St Sixtus and moved with us to St Puis when we went to the big school in 1971. And last but not least Miss Bradley in St Sixtus. She tutored me in her own time to bring me up to the same level as the rest of the class, when I had spent a long time in Ruchill hospital.

Hello all,
Guess I'll add my tuppence worth here as well.
On returning from Southern Rhodesia, I attended Kilmacolm Primary around 1950-51.
Then, onto Shettleston Primary in 1952.
Next, I went to Mosspark Primary School from 1953-57.
Went on to Albert Road Academy / Pollokshields Secondary School from 1957-60.
Finally, I attended Bellahouston Academy from 1960-63, when I emigrated to Pugwash, N.S., Canada with my Parents.

Looking back now, I had some good, decent Teachers, but also had some very "twisted buggars", who loved to demean, & belt their pupils, especially at Mosspark [ Mr. Gowdie ], & at A.R.A. / P.S.S. [ Messrs. Inveratity & McKay.
Anyone remember their hard, tough Lochgelly straps, which left welts on your hands & wrists for days ?
Regards,
Bob Downie

Hi !

My first post from Newcastle, Australia. Name Tom Brown and went to St Sixtus School in Drumchapel from mid 1950's to 1960. Started at the Ledmore Drive Annexe, did the Airgold Drive Annexe opposite Camus Place and then the 'big school' on Kinfauns Drive. Was actually at the Airgold Drive Annexe again when Mum and Dad decided to emigrate at the end of 1960 !

Looking forward to adding more postings in other areas as I explore the site !
