War Memorial Trustee
The Trustees of the War Memorial Trust have decided to launch an appeal for individual donations to the Trust funds which are now very much reduced from the original sum because of on-going payments yearly for insurance etc.

Since there is no source of income for the Trust, this appeal has become more necessary as the result of a need for refurbishment of the Marian Statue in the chapel, which at present estimates, requires more than £4000.

If you would like to make some contribution to this fund, please send your donation, payable to Our Lady’s High School War Memorial Trust, to the address below

Our Lady’s High School
Dalzell Drive
Motherwell
ML1 2DG

Thank you for your consideration.";

Moved to Edinburgh 27yrs ago & Loving it! Still Visit the old Stomping Ground off Newarthill on the Odd Occasion.
Amazes me how so Many off those who were at the School at the Same time, are still in Newarthill!

Hi All,

I lived in Lanark town and was a pupil at Our Lady's from '57 - '64; at that time it was an all boy's school offering a great but strict education with no bullying or distractions it was also the top bursary award winning school in central Scotland, shame it lost it's focus and became a co-ed comprehensive in my opinion.

Initially working as an Assistant Scientific Officer at the NEL (DSIR) in East Kilbride after a varied and mixed global career; 2yrs in Canada, 6yrs in USA, 4yrs in Australia, 3yrs South Africa and 4yrs back in Edinburgh am now a semi-retired IT consultant living in London.

I went to OLHS in 84, it was the best school around for miles. When you were in trouble it was deputy head Mr White who would come looking for you and if you were unlucky to get caught dogging it Mr White came and growled then slap the back of your nut. But Mr Bonnyman the head of Sinclair was the most dreaded of all, he would catch you using your dinner ticket down at the uni and give you one hell of a bollocking. Saying that I'd never change schools. Plus I also went to St Bernadetts. John McNally

Enjoyed the site, esp the messages from old pupils. Was at OLHS 1977-81 (Katie Robinson) then GU, gradually moving further south after marriage & kids. Still remember my first day - English accent led to lots of comments. Mr Duffy best teacher ever, although ended up with career in IT not English. Anyone remember the sit down strike on the hill, or when all the prefects handed in badges in protest (can't remember why!), Meatloaf "Bat out of hell" playing non stop in commonroom?

I attended OLH with my sister Geraldine, who was in my year, we both left in 1974. It was difficult joining up with another school for the 5th and 6th years . I remember there was only about six girls in the final year. It would be good to hear from anyone who remembers us. Favourite subject was history.

have been on this page and the one thing that becomes clear is that a lot of people have good memories of being at OLHS .I was there 81-85 i did not get much of an education but that was more to do with my approch to the world. i did injoy it and made some good frends also i think the teachers had to put up with a lot from us students. Got my education after i left school trained as a nurse them when back to unie acouple of years ago and did a BA in Economics& Politics so all the best to eveyone who was at OLHS

Many thanks Gerry Boylan

Hi Gerry Monaghan ,
I played in front of you for two seasons ;didn't see much of you in that position. I remember you also captained a golf match pupils versus staff. I remember your talents as a poet..." no matter how much you shake your peg......
I remember your father attending one of your matches , he talked to me. The fathers of the players had , in their own lifes , suffered WW1 chaos ,1926 national miners strike ,1929 world recession ,WW2 , rationing till 1949.
Apart from my own father, I never saw another father supporting his son in this way.

Very best regards Gerry Boylan.
