"I was a pupil at Trinity Academy during the years 1950-53.  Here is a photo of my class.  I believe that the photo is of Class 2A, taken in 1952.

Teachers

I remember these teachers:

-  English: 

-  Miss (Mollie) MacKay

 

-  Miss Cowper - trilby hats, capes and brogue shoes

 

-  Mr. (Pete) Hanlon - a Kiwi

-  French: 

-  Mr Drummond  - hilarious depiction of snoring – in French !

 

-  Miss Hope  -  rather dishy

-  Latin: 

-  Miss McCrae  - Register Teacher of 1B.  She punched the Bible a bit.

-  Maths: 

-  Mr Drummond-  - nicknamed 'Bulldog:  what else?

-  Science: 

-  Mr Turpie

 

-  Miss Bonnington

-  Geography: 

-  Mr (Big Bill) Campbell  - The pulleys for maps were subjected to daily sabotage – or so it seemed.

-  History: 

-  Mr Scott Allan (Allen?) - He went round the class giving 'Short Note Tests' towards the end of his period.

-  Music: 

-  Miss Munro(e?)  - She let me sing in the choir!

-  PE: 

-  Stewart (Stuart?) Ballantyne (?) - A Boroughmuir Former Pupil

The Belt

I was ‘belted’ by:

Miss Mackay for ‘insolence’ (not guilty)

‘Bulldog’ Drummond for not doing homework (guilty).

'Bulldog' did not stint in his task!  This incident scarred me for life.

Concerts

In common with the recollections of other contributors, I remember the ‘end of year’ school concerts in the Usher Hall viz:-

-  Weber’s “Invitation to the Dance”.

- Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Iolanthe”  with superb performances from (?) Scanlon (I forget his first name) as Private Willis, and Fergus (?) (I forget his second name) as Earl Tolloller

-  in Coronation Year (1953):

-  The choir's renditions of  “Zadok the Priest” and “Guide me, Oh Thou Great Jehovah”.

Mr Scott-Allen's recitation of “The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God”.

 a minstrel song by Messrs. Redpath & Cowan.
