I have mentioned Workmans Junior Primary on here on a number of occasions, but there have been no replies that I can remember. I was there until 1961 and the classmates I can remember were John Walsh (whose dad taught in Kelvin), Phyllis McCartney, David Webster from Schomberg Street, Calvert McCutcheon and maybe Harold Stinson? from around Majestic Street. I can't remember any other names but can remember the teachers: Miss Gillespie, Miss Williamson, and Mrs McCaul. Anyone else on here have any stories about Workmans?

Hi Bruce Wayne regarding your post, I lived a couple of houses away from Phyllis McCartney, John walsh lived further up the street from us, I knew a Norman Webster and was in the same class as (flint) Harry Stainton but unfortunately haven't seen or heard from any of them in 50 years, think normam Webster is on the sandy row site sorry can't be of more help
