Re: District Nurses

Re: SCHOOL 'HOUSES'

Unfortunately there were no group photos taken at Ardeer while I was there. It was all individual ones which were great for the proud parents but made us all cringe. I don't think there were group ones taken at secondary school either - unless you were in the sports events. Such a shame!

Re: SCHOOL 'HOUSES'

LP I know it'a a few years since this was being discussed but the 3rd house at Ardeer was Simpson. Lister was yellow, Fleming, red, and your team green.

Maybe a figment of my imagination tho. Then there were several police houses at the Villas. I rememb...

Re: Stevenston Higher Grade 1960-1970

Can't believe I forgot Auld Miz - Mrs Milne who taught French. She also taught my mother who's now in her 80s. Although she was nearly retirement age when she taught me, she certainly hadn't lost her reputation as a bit of a battleaxe. Also Mrs Hinshelwood - Latin. She too was elderly (at least she ...
