Hi All Former-Pupils,

I thought I would start a wee thread to list the schools we went to when we were growing up. All you need to do is tell us which school you attended, in which area, and if you want to add anything else ... like stories about teachers and former pupils ... then please feel free!

GG.

the first School I went to was St Mary,s Annex,it was on the Maryhill Road across from the Maryhill Barraks,then to St Marys in Duncruin St ,and last but not least to St Columbusthat was in the fifties ,the most pleasant memmories I have are when in st Marys Annex I had a teacher I cant remember his name, but it was an Italian name ,well he had been in Japan and he brought back some things from there ,including shoes that he allowed us to try on and he had a lovely Kimono ,boy was that the most beautiful thing I had ever seen ,glad you brought this up Martin you made me think of some happy times wink.gif

St Machans Primary...totally excelled.
St Ninians High school....aw went tae hell .

Up therr wae the best teacher ah had in St Ninians wis Jimmy Hart, an Art teacher but for me wis ma R.E. teacher plus ma mornin attendance....maest mornins the phone wid go an maest times he'd look at me an say Office Cath..an ye better make it good cos yer innit big time laugh.gif
As an R.E. teacher he opened me up waaay beyond outside the box, and for this I will be eternally grateful to him.

I was shocked to find out he'd died sudenly a few years after I'd left .
One of the kindest, most humourous and understanding men I have ever met. Swore like a trooper annaw but whit an imagination an pusher for realisin the good things to be seen in the world.
R.I.P. Jimmy...an thanks fur hidin the smokes that day ah hud in ma desk fae Pope Boyle cos ye knew a calamity in the makin when ye seen wan.

Started oot in Rosevale St Primary.A Miss Bacon taught me to knit.God Bless her .At seven it was deemed I was old enough to cross Dumbarton Rd and go to Church St School.Took my qually at 11 and wanted to go Hamilton Crescent where all my pals went .They took shorthand and typing etc. I had to go to Hyland SS and take Latin and Greek and started German.Big mistake.I hated every minute I spent in that school.I had been on the radio representing my school so I was quite bright but once in the big school didn't learn too much.
Church St School was the school my Mother went to and then me and then my son and as far as I know it is still in operation this day

Lorna Strret School,
Drumoyne Primary School.
Govan Senior Secondary,

Loved School, had some happy times in Govan High, the teachers were a scream, and like a lot of us, once I had left wished I had studied harder,
Wanted to be a nurse, but at the same time wanted to earn money, so i could save to emigrate to Canada always[ since I was about 14 years of age ] wanted to travel, before settling down, and that i did,

There are three things everyone should do every day.
Number one is laugh.
Number two is think -- spend some time in thought.
Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears.
If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day.
