  Wellshot Primary School
  Dec 2019, email, Veronica Ann McLafferty (nee Westwater), age 71, Largs, Ayrshire.
I was at Wellshot primary and annex Tollcross Rd. and didn't pass the 11 plus so stayed at Wellshot Sec. until I left.  
 My memory is now poor due to strokes and age.   I stayed in 51 Trainard Ave. married my hubby 62 Trainard Ave.  we are still together.  Trainard Ave adjoined  the school . I am just not too clever working these thingy's.    To cut it short, I would love to have some old school photos.   MY memory is not too good.    I can remember teachers names.   I can recall some class mates names.   I was in the choir that won THE GOLD MEDAL in The Robert Burns contest.

hi veronica westwater from large asked for school photos of wellshot primary or tollcross annexe. I don't have any but would just like her to know I remember her name. It was similar to mine Bridgewater, and I also attended both schools from about1958 to 1963. She is 3 years older than me but I also sang in the choir for Robert Burns competition at the Wellshot Halls that she mentions. I don't know how to contact her but if you could pass the message on that would be nice. I went on to Eastbank Academy but she may remember my brother Charles who went to Wellshot secondary and nearer her age.
Yours sincerely  Jeanette Bridgewater
