As ever, our Looking Back feature whisks you to 2008 when we bring in the nostalgia and remember what was going on in the area 15 years ago.

The journey back is always a bit of fun and often rejigs memories that were previously hidden behind the mind's eye somewhere.

This week, there is a festive feel to the look back, with a visit from Santa, plenty of charity work going on in the area and a visit from the Scotland men's football team's manager at the time - George Burley.

Whatever happened to George?

The kids at Langfaulds Primary in Drumchapel were embracing all things pink to raise money for breast cancer research.

They came to school dressed in pink, and staff provided a range of pink cakes and other treats.

They also had a best-dressed competition and all the money raised from the day went to breast cancer research.

2. Kids dig day out

To raise money for charity, these nursery school kids had a pyjama day.

They all paid a donation to come to Lennox Nursery, in Faifley, dressed in their pyjamas, and there was a special cake and candy stall on offer.

They managed to raise an impressive £270 that went to Children in Need.

4. Scots boss drops in

Primary school kids were thrilled when Scotland boss George Burley dropped into their school for a chat.

The manager visited primary sixes at St Mary’s Primary in Duntocher as part of their literacy studies on Scottish Sport.

The kids quizzed Mr Burley about Scottish football and he told them he was happy to answer them - as the questions were not as difficult as the ones he gets from the media.

5. Flying visit

A school welcomed special international guests into their classroom.

St Ninians Primary in Knightswood was visited by Dutch education officers and teachers to study the way kids are taught in the area.

The guests, who came from all over the Netherlands, were especially impressed with the pupils’ wall displays as they walked round the classes.

6. Santa Claus was in townClydebank Post: A first sight of SantaA first sight of Santa (Image: Stock)

Santa visited a school in the area to make sure all the boys and girls were behaving themselves before Christmas.

He made the special guest appearance at Scotstoun Primary’s festive fair.

As well as a grotto, there were also lots of stalls crammed with stocking filler bargains at the Duncan Avenue school.
