  I went to Glasgow High School for Boys as it was known back in the 50s. I hated every day there, under the tyrannic rule of David Lees, Headmaster. A nasty wee short-arse who ruled with tawse and cane, he was universally hated by students and staff alike.

  Sad to say both my primary and secondary schools no longer exist. Springbank School (across the road from where I grew up in Hinshaw Street) was demolished recently. I have many happy memories of going there (1947 to 1953). Then on to North Kelvinside Sec. At the young age of 11, I was learning bookkeeping, followed later with typing, shorthand and commercial arithmetic. Commercial was the only subject I excelled in - all the others were just average for me.

Mind you, I did manage to do a painting in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery as part of a school project. Not sure why I was selected as I was average at art too! Still, good experience I have never forgotten.

I have always regretted not visiting NKS when I was in Glasgow. On my last visit in 2011 the school had been demolished and was being replaced by housing.
