HERE THE HON. LT. GOVERNOR OF QUEBEC GASPARD FAUTEUX AT THE OPENING OF THE NEW EXTENSION OF R.G.H.S IN 19?? DOES ANY BLOGGER REMEMBER THE YEAR.
With regards Normonds question "the opening of RGHS extension.
I believe it was 1954 & there was NO RGHS it was I believe in 1954 and it was RGS
Thanks Murray P.
The first addition to the RGS was started in 1952 and completed and
opened in the Spring of 1953. I remember it because I was in Miss
Hillborne's grade 2 class and we started in Sept 1952 in a temporary
classroom in the girl's basement area. In the Spring of 1953 we moved
into our sparkling new classroom in the new addition. I believe the
addition had 5 classrooms (one upstairs above the principal's office),
the principal's office and the gym/locker rooms.
I guess the school did not officially become a high school (RGHS) until
John McConachie's 1960 graduating class entered grade 8 in 1956.
