Welcome to

Our memorable reunion was held at the Pollokshields Burgh Hall, September, 2003.

A few quotes from those who attended are interspersed below, and are a small sample of the wonderful
outpouring of thanks sent to our committee members.

For my part, I thank all who attended and entered into the spirit of the occasion, thereby ensuring its success.
"....must be one of the first school reunions planned by remote control!"
".....it was all a bit unreal, like being in a time warp...meeting some people after almost 50 years!"
"....what a marvellous reunion!"
"It really was an outstanding success....everyone I spoke to had a great time"
This glass paperweight memento was given to all former pupils who
attended. It is three and a quarter inches in diameter, and three quarters of an inch deep. It is inscribed with "Albert Road Academy...Reunion 2003", encircling the school badge.

Sad to say, Margaret's husband and business partner passed away recently and
the catering business is now closed.
"I must say, the memories of the teachers were brilliant and seemed to bond us"

Here's some foties fer you, ma freen
Hope the contents pleasure yer een
For sure, if there's no a biddy tae see
There'll be some that'll say they're no worth a bawbee
But we that wis there are jist happy tae mind
A' the pals that were met an the ties that wir bind
No matter whit, there were no strangers there
Auld freens or new, the connection wis rare
When we a' reach oor dotage and memory's died
The auld school connection will bond and abide
So enjoy these reflections of faces and chatter
At oor ain celebration of the auld alma mater
