Post #1






We are having a school reunion in Glasgow City Centre on 30th August.
Anyone from the past who went to Craigbank Sec in the seventies is welcome.
It would be good to see anyone who I knew in Priesthil in that time.
I left school in 1978. But folk from the area will be most welcome to come along because its always good to see some old faces from the past. There is no venue been chosen yet but that will be done soon so if interested just get in touch and I will give you whatever info I can.

I went to Craigbank from 68 through till 72. Left Glesga in 72 and have just returned at the beginning of June 2009.

Our Maths teacher (Alexander ???) came into the class late one day shouting at the noise we were making. Doh. !!! When we were eventually quiet, he told us "I can't work under the general hubbub in this classroom". Very slowly and very quietly I began to whisper hubbub hubbub, until the whole class had joined in, so much so, you couldn't hear yourself think.

From then on Alexander(?) was known as "General Hubbub"

Sorry I missed the getogether, would have loved to have been there.

hi Bob
Just found this site. ohmy.gif

I left Craigie in 1978 and lived in Peat Road.
My elder sister and brother also went there but left long before I did.

I hope you had a good turn out at your planned runion.

That was a great idea. Wish I had seen the site before.

I moved to Dundee in 1984 and lost touch with most of my friends......... well all of them realy. sad.gif

I'm happy here in Dundee though. Great to walk down memory lane occasionally.
take care
Mary

I went to Craigie until the late 70's and it was a great time. I didn't think that at the time though.
I wish I could go back now !!! Too late was the cry !!!

oh, well. smile.gif

Were you one of the pupils who went on strike. biggrin.gif

I remember the kids at Craigie going on strike and when they went back they all got the belt! LOL

That didn't happen at Bellarmine! No need for strikes - it was paradise every day. A pleasure to go to school. tongue.gif
