"I was born in 1966 and was a pupil at Wester Hailes Education Centre in Edinburgh in 1980 when it was a beautiful school. It was very modern for its time.  It had a great swimming pool.  We could use it at dinner break."


"I used to live in the high blocks of flats just opposite the school.

I now live in Humberside and have not been back to Wester Hailes since I was at school there.  Looking at Google Earth now, the area seems to have changed so much.

Does anybody have any photos of the school or the area in the 1980s?"

Memories or Old Photos?

Do you have any memories of Wester Hailes, or  any old photos of the area that you could scan and email  to me?  If so, I might be able to add them to the EdinPhoto web site.  Then I could send an email to John to let him know about them.

                Thank you.
