"I attended St Ann's (1947-49) then we moved to Niddrie Mains Terrace and I attended St Francis' (1949-54).
Some of the teachers that I remember from St Francis' are:
- Mr Davidson, Headmaster.
- Miss Curran.
- Joe Dykes.
- Mrs Stalks.
- Miss Hill, Gym Teacher."
"I remember that every Friday, we would leave the school and get the bus, with our towels, swimsuits and 'shivery bites' , to go up to Sciennes School for our swimming lessons.
Then, we changed to using the pool in Portobello.
I have lots of great memories!
I passed my 'Qually' at St Francis', then attended St Thomas' (1954-57)."
