Woodwork Teachers, Wee Willy Williamson
one of the best teachers in the school Hendy O0 a first class bloke O0

Herbie Johnston taught me woodwork and McAllister Intyre taught me Tech Drawing. Bill Bailie taught Maths and Linda Cooper taught English. Lovely Lady. Mr Bingham introduced me to a life of Rugby and athletics and Mary Montgomery taught Biology as did Valerie Bennett. Another lovely lady for a different reason LOL.

I remember Ken well, think I was in 2nd year with him (2G3)? He was certainly the best farter, real or hand I ever heard. He would sent the teachers mental with his antics. Haven't seen or heard of Ken for donkeys years. He lived in Haddow Street which I think joined Bellvue and Sugarfield Streets at the Cupar Street end.
 
I remember a strange wee teacher at Ballygo who had the nickname of `Beatnic`I think he taught arts and crafts or something like that. He was a weird looking wee man and had a wee squeaky voice. I think he got the occasional punch in the gub for his troubles.
Ken shaw was a bully where he lived. He enjoyed picking on wee kids who couldn't stand up to him. He was a nasty piece of work. Hope he never got on.

Wee Logie became my nemesis. Pulled the 'trigger' that lead me to get put on school probation.

Kenneth Shaw may have emigrated.   Hope the [censored] got his come uppance where ever he ended up.   His behaviour reflected on how ballygo taught.

Apparently he did get his comeuppance as you say. According to my nephew  who still lives in the Shankill and lived at the bottom end of Sugarfield Street, Ken Shaw died in a car crash around 1980. Hope that satisfies your curiosity.   ::)
Wear your RED POPPY with PRIDE.  Lest we forget. BUY BRITISH.  Support the forces of LAW and ORDER, PAST and PRESENT. Justice for the BRITISH ARMY.

Just heard the other day a name, John Potts, a thick big time ballygo ugly kid who tried to bully and terrorise . Remember him as a dimwit smoker who always stank of players no6 fags! Seems petty crime may have been his downfall?          What a wally!!

I was in the first form 64/65 and was in 1P , Harry Wilson was the Form Teacher, don't remember a 1G2 but I was in 2G2 the second year.
Hi Hendy, we went through all the G2 classes together. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, do you ever have any reunions?Regards.
