Hi,

Great to see your entry.

However, and surprisingly, the school was, in fact, called Ogilvie Primary and the church was named Belssed John Ogilvie until he became a saint.

A common mistake that I made, and kind of keeps us all a bit confused.

We should all go for the real and original name of Ogilvie Primary.

Best regards,

From Tommy Nevin
(brother of Mary, Michael, Pat, Joseph and Kathleen).
You must know at least one of that lot.

Hello All,

I too attended John Ogilvie Primary and was an altar boy at Blessed John Ogilvie. Funny, but I was quite upset when I realised that both buidings were no longer there, especially the church. It seems almost perverse to knock down such a famous building. Of course I remember Mr Nevin - as we are related! It would be nice to hear from you! I left John Ogilvie Primary around 69, and Easterhouse around 73.

I remember Mr Byrne, Mr Murphy, Miss Glendinning,Miss King, Mr Madill (the headie) - does anyone remember Mrs Teviot? I spent some time up at the annex, perhaps for a year or so. I lived in Banton Place, off Wardie.

I suppose it sounds nostalgic, but I believe they weren't such bad days; the church and the school were such a big part of my life, it's hard to believe they are no longer there. But we have our memories, eh?

I am related to the Nevins and the Jones girls who lived in Eddelwood. I was friendly with the McShane boys, Brian & Jim.

I would love to see some pictures of the church and the school.

Get in touch Tommy!

Tom Ward, Blantyre.

Attended Ogilvie Primary from 1962 until 1969. Last teacher was Mr Byrne and some of my classmates were Sharon McPake, Sarah Warren, Angela Bryden, Phillip Scholtz, Pat Donaldson, Nora Gibson, Brian McShane. I remember you, Thomas Ward. I used to live at the corner of Wardie Road and Bantom Place. I lived there until 1976 and then travelled around the UK working with a national company. Returned to Glasgow in 1984. Joined an international organisation the following year and in 1988 was sent on my first overseas posting. Spent the next 13 years working in several countries. Finally put down roots in Australia where I live today. I return each year to Glasgow to visit family and friends and was there in July this year. I often reflect back on my days at John Ogilvie and the friends I had there.

Hi, I didn't go to the school but was married in the church on 29th December 1962 and we celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this year. My husband came from Baldovan Cres and I came from Haliburton Cres (no longer there) but I belonged to St Benedicts but they had not built the church then and had mass in a hall. I remember Fr. Henry McGinn asked if we had to get married, as you could not get married in Advent in those days!! We moved away from Easterhouse and made our way to Australia i 1966. Sorry to see that the building was demolished.

I think I left the school in 1962. Lived on the Kilmarnock Rd in Newlands. I remember a classmate called Bezoari - he would snitch on you if you talked! In summer one of the sports was throwing the cricket ball to see who got it furthest. I was second or third - the guy who came first each time was real good. We played rugby at the St Aloysius school playing fields way away.

Anyone remember any of this? I moved to Manchester area when I left.
