Charles Forrest

Whitstable, Kent, England

Thank you to Charles Forrest who wrote

South Bridge School

and

Darroch School

"I sincerely hope someone has some recall of the 2 schools in Edinburgh that I attended:

-  South Bridge School (from about 1952 to 1958)

-  Darroch Junior Secondary School (from 1958 to 1961)

My Primary Teacher was Miss Heatherwick. 

Does anyone out there have any memories at all of either school, or of any of the teachers or pupils?  I've been unable to get much info.

I lived in the Potterow before moving to Keir Street, near the Art College.  I eventually moved, in 1961, to live above the 'Little Theatre' in the Pleasance which my dad ran, better known now as the 'Pleasance Festival Theatre'.

Any recall from classmates etc. would be fabulous."

Other teachers were:

Mrs Preston

Miss Woolard, the sewing teacher  

-  Mr Wilson, the head master.

Darroch School

"I then went to Darroch in 1955, where my teachers were:

-   Mr Findlay

-   Mr Knight  art  teacher

-   Miss Scott, cookery teacher 

We went to Bruntsfield for laundry classes and to the school house around the corner  where they taught you how to run a house. 

I remember my pals:

South Bridge School

"After beginning my schooling at Castlehill School (below the Esplanade) which closed after a year, I moved to South Bridge School.

The teachers I had there were Miss Brown and Miss Mowat.  Other teachers were Miss Gibson (very strict), Mr Steele and Miss Woolard (the sewing/knitting teacher)."

-   Mrs Nelson (in the huts) as Register Teacher and for Maths.

 Mr Paterson for English, hen Mr Somerville

-  Miss Ketchen for Cookery

-  Miss Thomson for Laundry

-  Mr Birrell for Typing

-  Miss Fuller for Music

-  Mr Knight for Art

  Can't remember the others.

My husband, George Marshall, was also at South Bridge then Darroch schools, but he's 2 years older than me, so you probably wouldn't know him."

Burgess Brothers

"Two boys who lived close to me, David and Douglas Burgess both went to Darroch. They lived in Quarry Cottages just up from Niddrie Mill.

David was into golf, quite young, and played at Portobello golf course.  Douglas was into athletics. I remember seeing a photograph in the Evening News here about him winning something at Meadowbank stadium

 If you know either of them, I could try and find out a little more for you."

Thank you to John Clark who wrote:

Teachers

"I do not have any fond memories of Darroch School.  After experiencing the love and affection I had for North Merchiston Primary, Darroch was like a penitentiary.

I attended between 1949 and 1952.  My one good memory is my English, History and Geography teacher, Mrs Rozgova. She was strict, but she was so intelligent about what was going on, and also what was in store for the future.

The only other teachers I remember are Mr Thorburn ( French)  and Mr Mallenson ( Science)."

 Mr Kennedy was our headmaster.

I was also taught by Mr Thorburn.  He was quite scary to me.  Our English teacher was Mrs Drayton."

Schools Closed

Sad to say Darroch, is no longer a school.  Neither is South Bridge nor Drummond Street."

Catherine asked Charles Forrest:

Teachers

"Do you remember:

-  Miss Forsyth, the music teacher?

Mrs Forsyth the other French teacher?

- being taken to Lady Glenorchy church for certain services?

Shops

"Do you remember the shop in Gilmore Place that sold home-made tablet?  - the number of dinner monies that were spent there and in the chip shop in Fountainbridge, opposite Duncan's chocolate factory Oh happy days."

Patrick Hutton

Thank you to Patrick Hutton who wrote:

Gillespies at Darroch

"I was at Darroch, so to speak. Gillespies used it as an annexe in the late 1970s. I spent most of my 2nd year (1976-77) there, as Gillespies was overcrowded and S2 was sent down there.

Darroch was used, throughout my time, for Arts and Crafts: the huts at the back were metalwork, Art was on the upper floors, and woodwork and Tech Drawing were upstairs in a separate building.

One winter the whole of Gillespies was squeezed in for a wee while as I think the oil tanker drivers were on strike, but the Darroch boilers were coal-fired.

We used to go to Tollcross sometimes.  There was a short-cut through Murchies Dairy (stinking) to Lochrin Place."

 ** I asked Margaret the meaning of 3TCM.  She explained that it stood for 3rd Year, Technical & Commercial Class, Term beginning March.

 

Lunchtimes

Happy lunchtimes - we shot off to Dominic's chippy.  Us girls all had such a crush on Dominic.  We would buy fourpence worth of fritters, and we'd club the rest of our dinner money together and buy five Turf cigs which we thought at that time made us look cool.

What were we thinking about?  -  a greasy bag of fritters and a fag.  Cool, I think not!

Summer 2012

"I lived in West Mains, Edinburgh, from 1957 until getting married.

Most of the children went to Sciennes Primary School, then went on to Darroch or Boroughmuir.

On 6 July, I held a Reunion for some of the guys and gals at the Minto Hotel.  Twenty-six of us spent from 4pm until 11pm catching up on the past fifty years!

It really wasn't long enough, so we will be doing it all again at the end of August so that Lindsay Broadbent can meet up with old pals.  He was not able to attend last week due to business commitments.

I've received phone calls and emails saying how much everybody enjoyed going back in time to their happy childhoods at West Mains."
