I should have said I left Charlotte St in 1960, My school pictures look pretty much the same as that one.

Do any of your lassies remember being taken outside during gym glass and wearing your navy blue (or black) knickers. We had to run around the girl's end of the play ground, the lad's used to whistle and give us all big reddies. I remember one time the elastic in the leg of my knickers gave way. Oh boy I was sure affronted. Seeing what the youngsters wear today I wonder why we were so shy to run around the school yard in our gym knickers. Jaybee

The school was always referred to as Charlotte Street because that was it's location. It's proper title was Our Lady of St Francis. Does the school still exist? Charlotte St was the senior secondary school for Catholic girls. St Mungo's was the senior secondary school for Catholic boys. There used to be senior and junior secondary schools before comprehensive secondary schools.

Hi. I started Charlotte St. School in1969. Would love to hear from anyone who was in the classes at that time. Charlotte St. was mostly pulled down and turned into flats. There's a part remaining that was used for geography and languages that I think is now being used as offices. I remember all too well the strong stench of a coffee factory nearby that made you want to throw up! Ah...the good old days!

When I first started school my only ambition was to leave. School was an horrendous experience for me. My first teacher Mrs Doyle was a pure b$*%"#! that delighted in taking you down in front of the class. The kids were horrible shits as well, very derogatory. The adults they were around must have instilled that in them. I had the last laugh because I went on to make a very happy and successful life for myself and to all those horrible pupils and horrible teachers GET IT RIGHT UP YI.

Does anyone have any old photos of Garnet Bank Mrs Rigley's class 1961?
and 1957/1965? Can't remember teachers names for these years - Mrs Hadden and McSween come to mind and Mr finlayson.
Thanks, would be very grateful!

hi i enjoyed my school days, i went to ruchill primary i remember the head teacher was called miss park, she was very strict. there was a lovely teacher called mrs cunningham who was a great teacher i think every pupil liked her. i am going back to 1960 when i started primary. when i left ruchill i could have went to nk but decided to go to garrioch but secondary school as my friend was going there. i did enjoy garrioch though, when i was there it was all girls classes and all boys classes. i remember the rules where that the girls had to walk on one side of the pavement, and the boys the other side when moving from one part of the school to go to another part if changing classes. the girls and boys had seperate playgrounds i went to garrioch from 1967 to 1970. does anyone remember mrs blake the english teacher she was a really good teacher. what other teachers does anyone remember if they went to any of these two schools at the same time i did.
