You're a bit younger than me P/Peeps. When did Garrioch become a secondary? My husband went to Garrioch but it was a primary then.

Hi MHG, my wee cousin Maralyn (yes that's the right spelling smile.gif ) went to Garrioch Primary then around 1963 until 1968 she went to NKS.

My dad also went to NKS but that was back in the early 1930's.

Alex my cousins lived in Liddesdale Road just opposite Miltonbank and they had to go to Chirnsyde. Miltonbank infants was down by Scaraway Street and the juniors was up at Scalpay Street. I think Torogay Street was the dividing line which decided whether you went to Miltonbank or Chirnsyde

Stuarty - I didn't know there was a Springbank Academy. From 1945 till 1953, I lived in Hinshaw Street and went to Springbank Primary in the same street. Is this the same building?

I don't know when Garrioch became a secondary school . However there was three parts to Garrioch when i was there .The top building just as you turned off Maryhill road , was where i went for registration , halfway down the road was what we called the huts . A few low buildings with a large playground attached .Right at the bottom of the road was a larger school building , which i am sure was originally Garrioch Primary . Part of Garrioch is now used by Stowe College .

P/Peeps, the top building was the old Eastpark Junior Secondary school. When I left Shakespeare Primary, if you passed your quallie you went to North Kelvinside Senior Secondary and if you failed your quallie you went to Eastpark Junior Secondary. Actually, both schools were good schools.

hi i enjoyed my school days, i went to ruchill primary i remember the head teacher was called miss park, she was very strict. there was a lovely teacher called mrs cunningham who was a great teacher i think every pupil liked her. i am going back to 1960 when i started primary. when i left ruchill i could have went to nk but decided to go to garrioch but secondary school as my friend was going there. i did enjoy garrioch though, when i was there it was all girls classes and all boys classes. i remember the rules where that the girls had to walk on one side of the pavement, and the boys the other side when moving from one part of the school to go to another part if changing classes. the girls and boys had seperate playgrounds i went to garrioch from 1967 to 1970. does anyone remember mrs blake the english teacher she was a really good teacher. what other teachers does anyone remember if they went to any of these two schools at the same time i did.

I loved school ,cant really remember my first day.However I do remember about two weeks later got on the tram at Alexandra park and I guess my big sister and I got on the wrong one .You see it turned at Aiken St instead of going right up Cumbernauld Road. We both went hysterical .The conductress got off and put us on the next car. Will never forget it.
Hated to leave my primary , Still did enjoy Charlotte St.

The school was always referred to as Charlotte Street because that was it's location. It's proper title was Our Lady of St Francis. Does the school still exist? Charlotte St was the senior secondary school for Catholic girls. St Mungo's was the senior secondary school for Catholic boys. There used to be senior and junior secondary schools before comprehensive secondary schools.

Yes I am aware of the proper title,but as you say we all referred to it as Charlotte Street. In answer to your question ,I believe the girls now go to St Mungo's.Not sure if Our Lady & St Francis is still standing.

Hi Isobel.

Have you seen this old Charlotte St school photo?

http://www.glesga.ukpals.com/schools/olsf1951.htm

Are you in it? I am not suggesting you are that old. wink.gif

Seeing this old photo reminds me that my parents have old school photographs. I know my dad has an old class photograph from St Mungo's Academy, Parson Street, Townhead which must have been taken around 1948. Similarly my mum has an old class photograph from St Anne's Primary school next to the Gallowgate, which also must have been taken around 1948.

According to my mum, she was meant to attend Our Lady and St Francis, Charlotte Street but her parents could not afford to buy her the uniform, so instead she attended Sacred Heart Secondary School in Bridgeton - along with most of her friends - which I assume must have been a junior secondary school.

I must get round to posting these old school photographs sometime.

Paul
