 My First School
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Fri 12 Jan 07:48

My family emigrated to Scotland in 1960 and I was enrolled at Aberdour PS. It was situated on the bend between the village`s High St and Main St, next to the railway line. I vividly remember standing on the bridge, marvelling at the giant puffs of steam as the locomotives passed underneath, but I can`t picture what my first school looked like and I can`t find it on T`internet. It was knocked down and turned into a little garden when a new school was built near the Silver Sands in 1967. does anyone have a pic or link to the original building?

Nostalgia ain`t what it used to be, huh? πŸ€”

You`re a bit old to be a cheeky pup, BPP. 😜

That school is still there, I think. It used to be St John Bosco`s back then, but was closed down after some pretty serious allegations were made about the Salesian Fathers who ran it. Some things never change.....

How come a Clackmannan boy knows about such a school? It wasn`t exactly on your doorstep? Hmm. πŸ€”

Aye, I was completely fascinated by the steam engines back then and just round the corner from the school there was a toy shop in the High St. It had an extensive rail network in the window and a couple of trains (Triang Hornby?) constantly going around it.

Many a lunch hour did this wee boy stand there with his nose pressed against the glass, knowing full well he could never possess these magical trains, because his parents were too poor and their priorities were for life`s essentials.... πŸ˜’

GG Riva did well to master the English language within a year since there were three distinct forms of it spoken in Aberdour. Like most native Scots I had learned to shift between the common tongue and its more polished version depending on whether I was in the playground or inside the classroom. However on entering secondary school I was confronted with a middle class form of English that went way beyond BBC English and sounded like something out of the β€˜Whacko’ TV series starring Jimmy Edwards. I assume these fellow pupils had fathers working in high positions inside Rosyth Dockyard and that was why they were living in what they called β€˜Abadowa.’

As a side note, I spoke to a Pars fan a couple of years ago who was brought up in Aberdour and he thought that the locals had objected to a Fish and Chip shop being opened in Aberdour. My memory is that until at least the early 1970s there was a Fish and Chip cafΓ© at the top of Shore Road which served over the counter. Has the village been gentrified?

I think it took me rather more than a year, Sammer. I started in P1, almost 3 years older than my classmates, with no English whatsoever. The other kids were nice to me, but there was a German lad in the school who was mercilessly bullied, mentally and physically, on an almost daily basis. I think WW2 was still fresh in everyone`s mind back then.

I was fast tracked through my primary education, so that by the time I was in P7, I`d caught up with my peers. By this time, we were in Dunfermline and I was taken to see the primary Head by my teacher, for "hiding behind my language." My crime? I was unable to decide whether a subordinate clause in a compound sentence was adverbial or adjectival. πŸ˜” Nowadays, I think kids studying H English might find themselves in the same boat.

Not sure how we got into chip shops, but I do know the good inhabitants of Crossford managed to keep them at bay until fairly recently.

I went to school in South Africa in the 1980`s and it was exceptionally strict.

School uniform was mandatory and inspections were regularly held to assess the shine of the shoe, hair length, neatness and length of girls skirts.

The cane was still in force and "six of the best" was still feared. I can recall one day receiving a total of 18 (3x6) from three separate sadistic male teachers whom I suspect swore allegiance to the swastika.

Every Thursday all boys had to swap their school uniforms for millitary attire for basic army training, shooting and parades whilst the girls learnt how best to keep a home with cooking classes.

Thank the lord that Nelson Mandela abolished these Draconian measures soon after the elections in 1994. My vote was not wasted.

Does anyone know someone who went to the old Aberdour PS? It was replaced by the current building in 1967, so it would have to be someone born before 1962. I was befriended by a lad called Ian Dewar who became a fine tennis player and may have represented Scotland. I don`t know if he lives locally.

Orne thing I do remember about the school is that the toilets were in the playground and had no roof. We were separated from the girls toilet by a high wall. Some of the boys tried their hardest to pee over it, but nobody could aim quite high enough and occasionally their best efforts backfired on them. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Thanks for uploading that for me, Raymie.

I got the pic from a young lady (about my own age) before the game on Saturday. She was also a pupil at the school in the 60s. No idea how she knew who I was. I must have changed a fair bit in 60 years. πŸ˜„

The building on the right was the school house. The lady who gave me the pic said she remembered the school had upstairs rooms and wondered if the building wasn`t one that preceded the one we attended. I doubt it had been replaced since it`s similar in style to other local schools such as St Leonards, Milesmark and McLean.

My first school age 5 years was Blairhall Primary. Because there was only one school in Oakley at the time, some of us were bussed each day to Blairhall. The first Inzievar JS School was approved and started and because Blairhall Primary needed more space we were shipped up to the old Hostel building up the Saline road, till Inzievar JS was ready. Ican remember quite a few of the teachers we had at the new Inzievar. My first teacher was Miss Sutherland in the primary, but who could forget the wonderful Music Teacher we had, Mr. Harry Grant who lived in Saline. He gave up the chance to joi the London Philharmonic Orchestra to teach children. He was amazing.
With living in Oakley I was happy to get my education continued at Inzievar as it was a Junior Secondary, and an excellent education we received. Teachers in the Secondary that come to mind, Mrs. Morrison, Miss Shand, Mr. Bernard, Mr. Simpson, Mr, Erskine, Mr. Toshak, Miss Donaldson and Miss Happer. The Headmaster was Mr. Wannan. I loved my schooling it was brilliant.

My Grandad who lived in Burntisland was a station clerk in Aberdour Station round about that time GG. I remember he was very proud of the flower display at the station, which got several awards. A lot of my boyhood and teenage Summers were spent at my Grandparents house in Burntisland and the walk from Burntisland to Aberdour and back was a favourite walk. In the past few years I have driven through to Aberdour several times and walked to Kinghorn and taken the bus back to Aberdour. A great day out, particularly when it`s a sunny day and the tide`s out. Aberdour has always been a favourite place for me and obviously Burntisland too.

Crombie PS is also no more. Its pupils have also moved to Limekilns. Who`ll be next? There are some really tiny schools in W. Fife. You`d imagine it`s not really viable to keep them open. Always sad for the local community to lose its primary school.

Where did you get that idea, Paralex? Foulford PS is alive and kicking, with a healthy school roll of 348 pupils. I`ve just googled it. 😁

Yes, the building I was in was near the bottom of Stenhouse Street, near the High Street. The building was demolished a long time ago and its a car park now. The new building looks like it`s about half a mile away. But good to know there is still a Foulford Primary School. What I remember about living in Cowdenbeath till the age of 9 is the bitterly cold winters and lots of snow. Looks like global warming has ended that.

It is mate. Got everything. 10 minutes north, we`ve got fantastic beaches, 10 minutes south we`re in lovely countryside and half an hour away from Edinburgh. Perfect location and Haddington is braw as well. Some great walks round the town.

Looks like you`ve been a Tranent dweller man and boy BigT but as I say to my son often it`s a great part of the world to live in. I`ve really come to appreciate East Lothian since he moved to Haddington.


It is mate. Got everything. 10 minutes north, we`ve got fantastic beaches, 10 minutes south we`re in lovely countryside and half an hour away from Edinburgh. Perfect location and Haddington is braw as well. Some great walks round the town.

Paralex .. hope you are well .. Big T forgot to add only 20 mins from me :-o))
