Quite a few ex Camphill pupils frequent the forum.

Many paths crossed and then scattered all over the place.

Overall I enjoyed school, although their was little/no direction or guidance given for any future career path.

Mastering the art of playing football with a tennis ball at "playtime" and dinnertime was a joy. 

Avoiding the angry wasps that congregated around the litter bins, the bitter cold on the blaze pitches, the pain when the "mouldy" hit you on any bare skin.

Your own swimming pool, a great luxury. 

The teachers, usual mixture of good to absolute nutters. 

Aye, I learned a lot in school. 

One thing that has always baffled me, why they wanted you to have football boots to play on a blaze pitch😲

I was there when it closed spent my last half term at the new school in Foxbar, bloody nightmare one way traffic when you came up a set of stairs and your class was 10 feet anti-clockwise you had to go clockwise round the damn building
 

So what year was that?

let me see, I left school aged 15; which I was in oct 67s, so sometime around then, TBF it was a wee while ago and my memory is not quite what it was I'm afraid.

The year "above" me.

My year was the last year before it became a comprehensive, what a change that was.

All the local dimwits and "would be" thugs all looking for attention.

 

I see I got out just in time before infected :)

You didn't like English I see? :lol:

It was a game changer, hoards of vermin, roamed around in packs, had to watch your back, they weren't keen on a one v one situation.

It did heighten your awareness of situations right enough.

WE thought it should be re named Scottish. :) and grammatically there is nothing amiss with what I writted.

Hey, @oaksoft, drop in here and give us some stories of your teenage years in a Paisley school? :lol:

I'm expecting a big bag of nothing. :rolleyes:

 

I would do if I had actually gone to a Paisley school.

Not sure what your point is.

Sigh.......................................... my point is I'm trying to establish WHAT connection you have to Paisley, or more importantly, St Mirren.

Any school would do, and what's this "scheme" you lived in? 

Enlighten us?

Knew that was coming, although you just usually ignore any requests about your connection with Paisley/St Mirren. :lol:

 

I also haven't shared my inside leg measurement or the date I lost my virginity with you either.

Is that where this is all heading?

I left Camphill school in June 1971, and it was the new building in Foxbar. I spent a couple of years there, so we must have decamped from the one in Castlehead about 1969.

I started  in 1969 and we weren't the first, first year at the new school so, as I said previously, I reckon the first intake at the new school must have been 1968.
