This is a deeply disturbing image of the school motto of a Kelvinside INSTITUTION which assists in reinforcing their incorrectly asummed status as a place of proper education. I look forward with delight to when their Charitable Status is removed; they perform no positive function in the wider community. Please remove this image forthwith from your website as it is not the kind of mis-representation I would expect of your otherwise commendable website/ business. The fact that they choose to disregard advertising standards is not an excuse for you to follow suit; it is not even an interesting/aesthetic photo. Rough translation: " Ever To Excel", or "Always Do Your Best". This is as profane an image as any by the Satanic one from (allegedly) the U.S.A. and far more offensive than a stone carved phallus which might at least stimulate an ethnographic interest in the conjuction of religious and sexual imagery. Then again, that might only be of interest to those who would find such research stimulating. There is much else to commend this building by James Sellars, a notable architect, and, even though it is "A" Listed, I'm sure it will convert nicely into retirement flats. Sincerely, Angry (Kelvinside)

I believe it is Kelvinside Academy's School Motto On the corner of Kirklee Rd./Bellshaugh Rd. A dear friend in Montreal believes it is too!!
