Just came across this site by accident, and hope it is still open! I came to America in 1958, and have been here since that time, with only two visits back to Britain, and only one of those to Scotland, in 1972 and 1980. Didn't know how to make contact with any ARAians at those times. am hoping I can come back for a visit this or next year, all being well, and would love to have contact with some of you! I heard of you through Eve Freund, who sadly passed away last year. Get back to me if you wish! Vivienne

Have some very good photographs. I remember my schooldays vividly and am now in touch with a few of my primary schoolmates when I attended Melville Street Primary School before moving up to ARA. Eileen Shaw that was, Rena Howie, Muriel Edmiston, Noreen Webster and a couple more. We meet every 6 to 8 weeks or so for lunch and have a great chat about our schooldays. Great to reminisce. I had a great friend in Helen Simpson but unfortunately she is no longer with us.

Lol. Im 12. Dont think any of you lot will know any teachers now! I left Pollokshields Primary last year. Im now in Bellahouston Academy, struggling to cope with all the racism. Primary were the days! If you want any information on how to contact the headteacher (Mrs Sutherland) just email me, Ill pop in the school and ask for an interview or something. By the way, out of curiosity, were there lots of gang rivalrys and fights back then? Thanks Sirs and Sirettes! lol

Hi David, Yes, I noticed that, and advised the Mitchell almost two years ago. Seems they haven't done anything about it, as yet.

I'm glad to see you have a link to Virtual Mitchell, a site I enjoy, BUT am I the only person to notice that they have the pictures of Albert Drive attached to the captions for Melville Street and vice versa? My teachers were Miss Neilson then Miss Lamont until I left to go to Hutchie. People I remember, whose names don't seem to have cropped up on the site, are Margaret McKinnon (emigrated to ?Canada) Keith Robb (moved away and had a brother Hugh), Bruce Pirie, Raymond Wolfson (went to Kelvinside I think), Charles Crombie whose parents lived abroad and who lived with his grandmother who had an apartment in Haggs Castle, Jean Hogg, Fay Lamont, Stuart Dunley (who had a brother Glen).
