At school Patricia learns about the The Three R’s – reading, writing and arithmetic – and her favourite subjects are Music & Movement and Singing Together. Patricia is getting ready to sit her ‘11 plus’ before moving to Secondary school.

She hopes when she leaves school at 15 she might be able to get a job in an office. Her big sister has recently become one of the first Girlguiding Glasgow Queen’s Guides and was presented with her award at the Annual Review which the family are immensely proud of. Both Patricia and her sister attended Girlguiding Glasgow’s first International camp at Mains Estate, Milngavie in 1952 where she met Guides from France, Switzerland and Denmark.
