Hi

I went to St Augustines Primary. I lived in Lambhill at the time and it was quite a walk to school. I then moved to Mingulay street Milton and attended St Augustines Secondary.

I really enjoyed primary school with teachers like Miss Donaldson, Miss Paul etc. The secondary was more of a challenge where I met Mr McGarrity, my best mates dad, Mr Gordon, Mr McKay, Mr Coll, Miss Gilligan, Mrs Kennedy, Mr & Mrs McGoldrick, Mr Dunwoody, Mr Campbell and Mr Ward the most sadistic PE teacher I Have ever met. I enjoyed my first couple of years at secondary when I was in the top class. But the arseholes that were teaching me forced me into the lower classes where I ended up finishing school before my allotted time. Well done the education board.

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.

Sorry heidmaister was actually the more famous John McKee. Knight Of St. Gregory.

McNeil was H.M. at St. Mirin's paisley. Whaur I wis edjucated to a high degree of intelergence. This wis eftir leanvin Guvin and the great St. Gerard's.

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.

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.
