Schooldays, Introduction

Start listening

Listen to Paul Quinn set out his podcasting plans.

“Hello there……. How was school for you?”

My name is Paul Quinn and, as a skinny 12 year old (the oldest of 4 with no older siblings) I went to school in Pollok in the 70s, and was terrified for the first three years of secondary!

Funnily enough, I went on to become a support teacher of vulnerable young people in a secondary school!

One day, talking to a colleague, I mentioned how much of a trauma my schooldays had been, and she said she had “really enjoyed school”!  I was amazed.

So my podcast aim is  to find people of all ages and ask them…

“How was school for you?”

We start with Carol, a songwriter with Romani heritage who went to school in Paisley in the 70’s… and then hear from Joe and Tamsin, aged 85 and 90, who went to school during the war…

These are their stories …

I would like to hear yours!
