In Mr Glen’s Physics class.
Shona raids the Science cupboards.
A sun-obscured shot, but I thought I’d include it as you can see the orientation of the tower block to the old building here.
The tower block always felt much darker than the old building. It was a prime example of 1970s architecture!
A view of the IT equipment in the library.
The Careers office. This room was once an office for the late Mrs Cleife (English teacher and Former Pupil).
Gordon remembers some funny moments from his time in the library.
…and from the other side towards the staff car park on Janetta Street.
A view from one side of the link corridor towards Shelley Drive…
Christine moves us over from the old building to the Tower Block via the “link corridor”.
Underneath the English corridor, this bricked up area was once open to the playground.
Gordon and Jim Snr. out in one of the quadrangles.
…to see this! The banners were designed to celebrate CHS’s 125th anniversary. You can see a video of a news report at the time by going to our video page here.
…and peer out through the curtains…
We wind our way back up to the back of the assembly hall stage…
The “girl’s” gymnasium. You can see through the windows the pointed apex of the roof windows pictured earlier in this collection.
The ladies have flashbacks of the nightmare of PE changing rooms! Pictured here are Nicola Forbes (seated) and Christine Panton, both CHS FPs.
Into the basketball court. I have many memories of “Social Dancing” in this room in the run up to Christmas!
Moving downstairs to Physical Education.
CHS FP 1995-2001 Nicola Forbes has a seat in the power chair.
An example of one of the Modern Languages classes.
Moving round to the junction of the History and Modern Languages departments we find a certain Mr Jim Dempster Snr!
This is Room 24. It was previously a tiered seating room with blackboards to the from but over recent years the seating was removed and it was used as a storage area. I always remember feeling a bit “spooky” in here!
We bump into some former teachers.
Left to right: Peter Watson (CHS FP 1984-1990), Dr C Watson (History and author of the history of CHS which you can view here), Mrs E Dempsey (Religious Education), Jim Dempster (CHS FP 1995-2001).
Moving away from Room 31 along the front of the school, towards the Geography and History departments we see this board recording some of the heritage of the school.
A view of Room 31. Pictured to the right is an old friend and classmate, Gordon Mackay.
