Hi anyone out there that went to centre street primary school between 1960 and 1966?

I stayed at the fire station across the road and went around with Matt Hooper, Andrew Mccance, Robert Brady, Jamie Mcqaurrie, Andrew Mcconnel to name but a few.

Do you remember Mrs Sclomka the German headteacher and Mr Pollock the janny?

Used to go to the Bedford cinema every Saturday afternoon.

It would be good to hear from anyone who was in my class or stayed in the fire station or around about it

Other names that come to mind are Catherine, Ann and Billy Mcfarlane, Daniel and Elizabeth Kemmet, George Gerbex, Kevin Sweeney, Samuel Mclean, Ian Mclean.

cheers Jocko.

Hi I went to Centre street school but before 1960. Probably started around 1953. Miss Schlomka was there then. Also I remember Miss McFeat. Loved my time there. We lived at 66 Nelson Street. Now live in Australia. Was sad to see it was no longer there. Sally (Hughes) Kean.

Hi, I am related to Miss Schlomka that some of you mention! My maiden name was Schlomka. My great great grandfather and her great grandfather were brothers! My father knew her grandfather. Unfortunately I never met her though we lived in Edinburgh but I now know her nephew, Clemens Schlomka very well. He lives in Germany. I have been researching our Family Tree. Clemens has lots of information and memorabilia about his Aunt Katy and came to visit her in her latter years. She lived in Bearsden. She had a brother (also called Clemens) who was also brought over from Germany as a child but disappeared in the 1920s and I can find no trace of him. Miss Schlomka began her teaching career at Jordanhill School in 1926.

Hi there....I went to Centre St school for primary 1 and 2 in 1965 - 66, and then we moved away to Easterhouse. I remember the head teacher, and Miss McFeat...!
I also think I remember the Finlayson family....I think our families were friends. My parents were Alex and Janet Brown, and I am Elizabeth Brown. We lived at 128 West St. I'd love a photo of that street...! Anyone have any idea where I might find one...?

I didn’t go to Centre Street school but can I ask where it was? I might have visited it as a student in the 70s if it’s the one I’m thinking of.

Centre St is in Tradeston, a couple of streets along Nelson St under the rail bridge from Eglinton St.

Ah, no. I’ve never been there. Thanks, Ash. After I enquired about Centre Street, I remembered, the place I went to on teacher training was the Normal School. New City Road area? Isn’t it terrible I can’t remember the places I went to because Glasgow has been decimated and lots of those places are no more.

I remember the Normal school as we used to pass it going through the "coo caddens" tongue.gif I worked for a few months in 1964 in a long since defunct domestic electrical company that was based in Centre St.

The Normal School was a teacher training resource centre, I think, in the late 60s, early 70s.
