Remembering Calder Street School

It’s been 11 years this week since the demolition of the Calder Street / First Auchinraith Primary School.

Contractors moved in at the end of June 2011 to demolish the school after it became no longer fit for purpose with the promise of the current, modern state of the art new school.

First built in 1912 at the corner of Calder Street and Victoria Street in Blantyre, the school was one year short of a Centenary 100 years when it was pulled down. What’s your memories of Calder Street School?
