1958 Wee Wullie Reid's French Lesson
Wee Wullie to student: "What's French for a ruler?"
Student: "La regle."
Wee Wullie: "Get on the floor."(to receive punishment)
Next student: "La regle."
Wee Wullie: "Get out on the floor."
Next student: "Le regle?"
Wee Wullie: "Stay seated."
and so on through the class until those who said 'la regle' were out on the floor while others who said 'le regle' were seated.
Then Wee Wullie said: "All those on the floor, sit down, the others get out on the floor," whereupon he proceeded to give those out on the floor, who had insecure enough to say 'le regle', three of the belt, crossed hands, for getting it wrong.
Those were the times.

Does anyone have any photographs of the School team, first 11 between 1942 - 1945 or the junior teams 1941 to 1942. I would be pleased to hear from you.

Hi Steve Delaney. The motto reads " With thee Mary, we shall conquer " and it was Greek, not Latin. Don't have Greek letters on computor but it sounds....Meta soi Maria nikesomen. When playing representative football matches, like Glasgow v Rest of Scotland it was difficult sometimes to explain why Mary for what was then a boys school, especially to those who did not wish to understand !!

Just happened upon this site when a friend posted a picture of the old school building. Brought back lots of great memories. Piling into the buses at the end of the day and passing our bus passes under the seat to friends who did not have one so that they did not have to walk home...all boys back then 64 - 65... Great days and really proud of the uniform.

I have justbeen introduced to the Computer and happened upon your web site.....Generally speaking,your :historical synopsis is correct but could do with a little tweaking.......The girls:when I arrived in 1942 there were perhaps 6 girls in the 5th/6th year and when they left the school the school became all boys:girls went to Elmwood Convent,Bothwell......The Badge illustrated became almost extinct with Blazers during the war, when clothes rationing excluded the possibility of having regulation dress.The badge,not the Blazers,were revived in 1949 when they appeared on the school football strip.You could have mentioned that the lettering on the face of the badge read OLHS!....If OLHS was renowned for anything in the late 40s/early 50s,it was because of the reputation of all four of the football teams-the school was single mindedly football mad--interesting because we didn't have a viable football field and played all our home games at the GeorgeV memorial field at Wishaw.....You mention the Memorial Chapel which you must have transferred from the Airbles road location.That gave me much pleasure because of its solemnity and importance to us since we had students who were dircctly related to the !Fallen".....It has been refreshing to read of the continuity of the school

I was at OLHS '57-'63, grew up in Cambuslang. Went to London, spent most of my life there, mainly as a teacher, (although '72-'75 at Hamilton College). Just saw a photo on OLHS site of a'57 First Year class, Dave Rhodes centre front, also Frank Fox, Danny Coyle, Tom McKenna, Mick McDonough. I remember boys mentioned above- John Dempsey, David McCabe, both shared classes with me (they'll remember a teacher, Wee Wullie Reid with fear and, perhaps, Stockholm Syndrome related affection). Frank McKay was in another class but I remember his courage in physically dealing with a bully in a snooker room in a local cafe at lunchtime. I also saw their group perform in a Glasgow venue. These were all great boys to share a school with, I have come to realise. It wasa school that required very hard work but was worth it. Also, if Michael Burns was a boy with thick, black hair, I remember him and he may remember an OLHS boy, '56-'63, Tommy Mone, a friend of mine who also worked at NEL from '64 before moving to Ireland.

Did not attend OLHS but had a very good friend who did in 1953. His name Hugh Gerrard McLinden. Does anyone know where he is? Last time I heard he was in Canada working for an oil company Would like to contact him to reminisce about Bellshill and the night of the Queen's Coronation
My maiden name was Foster

Thanks
