Kelburn Primary School. In the old Primary 1-3 building. In the stairwell, which was simple concrete steps and landings with coloured tubular steel handrails. I think/recall these were yellow, red and perhaps blue? The open central stair void was slightly frightening and I often felt like I was teetering at the edge. Some of us were climbing the steps but the landings were shifting and moving, retracting back from us, meaning we would have to leap to reach them. Seemed to be perched on slender concrete ledges around the perimeter of the stairwell too, clinging on for fear of falling. At some points the handrails were dangling – Towering Inferno-like – and we had to risk climbing up them (to reach the top?)-
