"Elder Pak w3as the underpinning of my education"

A review of Elder Park Primary School by Henry Kennedy Ph.D. written on Wednesday 23rd of February 2011

My brother, sister and I attended Elder Park in the '39-46 era. I recall that the Headmistress was Mrs. Morrison, a delightful woman. One of my earliest teachers was Miss Stirling; a queen. Later I had Miss Tough (Tough by name and "tuff" by nature), a great character whom I will never forget. She called me a "starturn" not as a complement. During WW2, when the bombing became extensive, Miss Tough came to Bogmoor Road, where many of us lived, and gave classes to our wee colony in a neighbour's house. I recall each Armistace Day when at 11 am, the horns of the ships on the Clyde blew and we held our moments of silence, our teachers cried quietly leaning against the wall. They were all members of the WW1 generation and many of whom had lost husbands, brothers and fiances. A great wee school!.
