"Back for the Future" for Walkerton Schools - Alumni Sought
Alumni spanning more than half a century are invited to return to Walkerton for an historical day in the community's educational heritage.
The end of one educational epoch spanning past decades is being replaced with the dawn of a new era of education in Walkerton with the opening of the Walkerton District Community School. The new facility will educate students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 (JK-12).
An Open House of the new facility is scheduled for Saturday May 26, 2012. The committee is planning events at each of the "closed" elementary schools - Brant Central School and Walkerton Public School - followed by an informal program at the new facility in a reunion setting to celebrate the occasion.
A planning committee is organizing complementary events - some of them specifically targeting various decades of alumni - coinciding with the Open House date.
Alumni Sought - A major challenge is "spreading the word" and compiling names and addresses of alumni.
In order to receive specific details as they are finalized, alumni of the three schools are encouraged to share their contact information with the chair of the organizing committee - Sherry Lynn (Frook) Bruder by phone 519-881-0869 or by e-mail [email protected].
Alumni Basketball Game - for those alumni basketball players who would enjoy one last trot down the gym floor, Vice Principal Dan Rourke is organizing basketball alumni game(s) for Saturday January 21, 2012. All former male and female WDSS basketball players are invited to participate - for information visit facebook at Walkerton District Secondary School Basketball Alumni Game or e-mail [email protected]
