Thumbing through the site, it seems a shame that the Good Shepherd does not get a mention.

I was christened at the chapel, was forced to be an alterboy & took the odd hit around the head from the rather angry priest (he did not allow anything other than complete concentration during Mass) Sometimes I rang the bell at the wrong time or didn't bother at the right time, much to the amusement of the congregation (usually about 4 pensioners) I also specialised in funerals and the odd wedding!

Went all the way through school there, and was in love with Miss Gallacher (year 6) or was it 7? I enjoyed myself and had some great pals and potential girlfriends (in ma dreams)

I attended from 1964-71(ish)

Anyone else go there or was it all a bad dream?

remember the shepherd really well. still see some of my classmates around tollcross or parkhead. best mate was in primary one all the way up til' it was shut down when the gym got burnt down. then moved to st.marks but never beat the good shepherd.

remember the old groundskeeper for the graveyard, ''auld keeney'' he was murder.

he used to shoot you with salt pellets and it nipped for ages. that was from 1970-75/76.

I went there from 1959 to 1965. I too remember Mr Hanney. Did anybody catch the golf balls with their head and go home with a bumper of a bruise but with a ha'penny for the ball?
