Davisville PS 150th Anniversary a Huge Success!
Hundreds of staff, students and parents, present and past, returned to Davisville PS on Saturday, October 22, 2011, to walk the halls, visit old classrooms and share memories with long-lost friends. The school welcomed alumni from all decades, including many graduates from the 1940s. Trustee Shelley Laskin and Councillor Josh Matlow also attended the event to help celebrate the school’s rich history and its special place in the neighbourhood.
Everyone enjoyed perusing the old class photos, slide shows, and letters from Davisville graduates displayed throughout the school. These mementos will continue to be on display at the school for a few more weeks and parents are encouraged to stop by and check them out.
The anniversary committee is still collecting letters and stories from people connected to Davisville PS to continue to document and preserve the school’s history. If you would like to submit a letter or story, please drop it off at the office or submit it here.
A big thank you to the organizing committee and the many other staff, parents and student helpers who worked so hard to make this event such a success!
