Classroom ‘Huts’

“Temporary” school huts. St Joseph’s, Livvies, Blantyre High…..any other schools?

I use the term “Temporary” very loosely…….what’s your memories of spillover, modular classroom “huts”?

On social media, the following comments were provided by readers:

Margaret Stewart Calder st high school had these huts in the 60/70s. They were situated across from the school, where the modern flats are now . The site was where the old library was. They were really cold in winter and too warm in summer.

Joe Allan Had them John Ogilvy back in the day

Ste Mcgowan I remember the old wooden ones in Ogilvie done science in one

Lynsey Fojut We had huts in Blantyre high until maybe 98/99 when they built the new sports hall. Was only ever in them a few times for classes. Remember being being crawling with spiders and terrified me. Remember they had 2 huts (4 class rooms) in David Livingstone but the 2nd hut was burnt down one weekend but stayed there for ages afterwards. We were in the huts in P4. Had a great time in them. There was a massive room between the 2 rooms we could play in. We had a robot thing we could program and send between the 2 classes.
