Victory PS heads back to 1919 for a day
May 7, 2019
GUELPH, Ontario – Victory Public School is celebrating a very exciting milestone this year with their 100th anniversary.
To celebrate the anniversary students and staff at the school have been participating in a wide variety of activities including visits from former students, a decades dance show, a live history show and writing projects.
On May 7, students and staff celebrated the rich school history by conducting the day as it would have been 100 years ago.
Students and staff dressed in period clothing, learned what punishment would have looked like in 1919, entered the school through their gender assigned entryway and even conducted their lessons using construction paper that was made to look like a slate.
Everyone at the school had a lot of fun pretending it was 1919 and tried their best to stay in character and not smile in photos.
