JOIN us as we take a trip down memory lane to reminisce about what was happening in Clydebank fifteen years ago.

We have delved into the Post’s archives to pick out some stories from over a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, March 11, 2009.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Kids on mission to break down barriers

Clydebank Post: Kids from different parts of West Dunbartonshire were getting together to break down territorial barriers.

Youngsters from Whitecrook, Drumry, and Haldane came together as part of the Tullochan Trust Primary Projects – to take part in a wide range of activities which focused on team building and fostering new friendships.

2. First glimpse of £71m high schools

Clydebank Post: Clydebank’s new, at the time of publication, public-private partnership schools were set to open their doors in just a few months.

St Peter the Apostle High – a merger of St Columba’s and St Andrew’s – and Clydebank High – which incorporated Braidfield – had previously sparked massive opposition.

However, the schools were near completion and the architectural beauty was hoped to win over any remaining opposers.

3. Pupils have Fair Trade down to a T

Clydebank Post: Pupils highlighted the importance of buying Fair Trade at a coffee morning.

The youngsters at St Ninian’s Primary in Knightswood donned special t-shirts and served up Fair Trade tea and coffee to parents, carers, and guardians.

There was also a raffle for the adults with Fair Trade hampers for the lucky winners.

4. Youngsters raise funds for good cause

Clydebank Post: Children at St Brendan’s Primary set up shop during their lunch break to raise money for St Margaret of Scotland Hospice.

The pupil council sold cakes, juice, and popcorn as well as raffling teddies, Valentine’s cakes, and lots of other goodies to classmates, raising an impressive £300.

5. Pupils learn about looking after their teeth

Clydebank Post: Dental health had never been so fun as lucky youngsters got a visit from the Gladigator to teach them about looking after their teeth.

The Clydemuir Primary kids then got to have fun on an inflatable Gladigator slide.

6. School goes bananas

Clydebank Post: Kids went bananas as part of a world-breaking event.

The youngsters at St Eunan’s Primary ate a banana each as part of a bid to break the world record for people eating bananas at the same time.

The event, where 350 bananas were eaten, was organised by the Fair Trade Foundation to take place during Fair Trade Fortnight.

To mark the occasion, staff and pupils all wore an item of yellow clothing.
