extract from messageboard, Nov.2005, Donna Brown (nee Robertson), Glasgow. 
........Memories.... does anyone remember Miss Swan from Queen Mary St. school. and Mrs. Burgess, they were my favourites in the fifties, I loved xmas at school, when we did a play, and went to church St Francis s its still there, so is the school, I remember a Sandra Findlay, Ronnie Ralston, he was greetin' first day at school. the Hamilton sisters, toerags the two of them caused mayhem at school. and a distant cousin Janet Garth who came for a short time to our school from America, god she got treated like royalty, because of her accent and fancy clothes, she was so popular. that seems like a different world now, I passed the playground recently, thinking of the slides we made in the snow, and playing doublers against the wall, and in the shed when it was lashing, wish I could go back for one day. I visited it one time about ten years ago, and remembered the door stops on all the class doors, loved playing with them. oh the memories.

I remember Miss Swan and Mrs Burgess also Miss Robertson, I thought Miss Swan was a movie star..
I think I started school August 52 just before my 5th birthday.
