Georgetown School is 60 years old and Counting…..

Parents and community members, 

Georgetown School recently had a birthday, on April 14th it turned 60 years old. On April 14, 1958 Georgetown School as we know it today opened its doors. There have been a lot of changes over the years and we would like to hear stories and see any interesting artifacts from past years. Alumni and community members are invited to meet with current students and staff to write these stories down and use these moments as an opportunity for all to share and learn. 

Please contact the school at 902-652-8970 to speak with Therese Mair to tell stories or arrange a time to meet and share memories. Thank you for your cooperation with this special project.
