Leith Walk School from the playground
Leith Walk School from the playground
In the 1950s, pupils lined up in this playground every morning at the beginning of the school day. On hearing the bell, they arranged themselves by class in rows of two, before awaiting the arrival of the teacher on duty who would insist on straight rows and complete silence before allowing them to enter the building. On occasion, the 'belt' (tawse) would be threatened against anyone misbehaving on entering. Changed days!
