-Home of the Rebels
-Hate that they changed the Rebels name 😞
-High School had its moments
-Looks so different when I went there part of the old building was still standing
-my mom Olga Murden run the cafeteria for quite a while she just loved the students said they were the best part of her job
-Gail, your mom made the BEST cheese and lettuce sandwiches on soft white bread EVER, we used to run to the caf to get them before they were gone!😍😛
-How sweet thank you so much for your comment
-my mother in law Connie Ferguson worked with her also.
-I remember Connie real well mom always said that she had the best crew in the cafeteria ever I think they laughed a lot too.....
-to think I finished grade 13 there in 1969 wow ,nearly 50 years ago
-At the far left hand corner is the house that I lived in from 1965 to 1969. The address is 74 Guelph Street! Left there and moved to Orillia for 3 years and then on to St. Catharines!😀😀
-Its a good thing walls don't talk
-I stared out that window a lot from Mrs. Blaney's classroom- loved the style of the "AHTLO" house across the street
-I was there 63 to 68 - I still appreciate my Latin - always do well in word puzzles!!
-Richard - do you remember the name of the Vice-Principal who drove a red Lotus that he parked in front of the school? I think he started in 1968 or 1969 around the same time that Mike Furlong became the Principal. His first name *might* have been Keith ...
-I chose a medical vocation and Latin was a real help
-I would love to thank Mrs. Blaney and Mrs. Glynn
-Awesome I like this view a lot better then when I went there! Classic cars 😍
-My husband went there until 3 days into grade 12.
-Rummaging through the online year books has been an extra treat this past year. Mine did not survive being stored in a box on a leaking porch.
-Oh the memories. Attended GDHS for grade 9 and 10. Then Moved up north and finished my high school and post secondary education.
-That was my high school for 3 1/2 years
-1970 - 1973 , grade 9, 10, and 11 ...
-OM GOODNESS! So many memories! LOL
-I went to GDHS in the late 80's and early 90's, great school! Although bad memories for me😑
-Overall high school was a happy time for me. One bad memory was walking up the hill in the cold after Christmas break and realizing I couldn't remember my locker combination lol. Graduated grade 13 in 1974.
-I still remember 38-6-45 (from the sixties)
-Sooo many memories ❤️
-Oh those were the good old days!
-Remember the last day of the year we sort had to turn in books and hang until they handed out the report cards??
-I will never forget the strike in 95... Wait no 96 I think...
-I can remember being so angry that our teachers were being treated unfairly. From my 16year old self I knew the teachers at Georgetown were the best in Canada!!
-(I loved that school, they gave you the opportunity to learn SO MUCH if you wanted to!!) #GoodOldDays
-I remember it back in 1957 it look like a big old farm house.
-The tech hallway.
-I have been trying to write a letter to the Minister of Education about the slimy way certain people have twisted history (Georgetown history not Confederate history)in order to change 57 years of REBEL tradition and change the name. I once said the tactic used by the principal was stupid. I was wrong. It was devious and cynical but effective. He will get his way and then move on to another job elsewhere..Georgetown foilks - those that are still there and still connected - must carry on the battle with Mitzi Hunter the Minister of Education. I will help if asked, but I am unable to lead the charge. It would be nice if the local town council got on-side as well. The IFP is a hopeless cause as they have already bought into the side that wants change.
-The memories are flooding in. My dad and his siblings went here, pre WWII for him. That would be the old building. My Aunt Mary once his the school bell so they couldn't start classes. Was expelled for this. Mr Lambert the principle told my grandad that Mary needed to learn who was boss. He later hired her as a phys-ed teacher. My sibs and I all attended. I was there from 67-72. Great years. Some of the best teachers. Mr Monaghan, Harry Hamilton, Romulus and Remus aka Mrss Glynn and Blaney, Mr. Sturm, Mr. Beer, Mrs. Williams... many more, sorry if I missed yours! My only regret is they didn't put the pool in till I left.
-Mrs Hess ,home ec ,Miss Rhody french
-I drove poor Miss Rhody bonkers. Mrs Hess didn't like the fact that I didn't like to measure when cooking. Just taste and add. Still cook that way.
-YesMrs Hess and I didn't get along and I don't measure either, she told me I was the only girl she ever flunked and there was no hope for me
-Oh dear! That is terrible. I failed ''shirts' because she wouldn't leave me be and I ripped the dang thing down the back. Had to see it up and it was plaid so a real stinker. I went on to become a pretty good seamstress and cook despite home ec😉, thanks to my mom. In the late 60s we kids were getting a little wild. Not the prim and proper ladies poor Mrs. Hess expected us to be. I blame and thank Mr. Corning for my independent thinking.
-I would blame Robert Monahan for that ,he instilled the love of lterature
-He did that. I went on to get a degree in English at Western because of him.
-I remember mr Corning
-Great grade nine history teacher
-Mr Gouda for math, Macdonald for art, keewley math, Ramautarsing,Bowden math,keele science and chemistry,
-Mrs. Kewely...math teacher, she had a way to make you feel really stupid at times...to the point where you forgot your own name :)
-There are many wonderful memories. Great moments. I did not know from sketching out a few pages and taking pictures for the yearbook, I would end up at the Herald as photographer/writer and then to the Georgetown Independent working with Anne Currie and Hartley Coles.
-When I went it was amazing
-I had a great locker in grade 9, ('71), right beside the entrance to the boys change room.
-1989-94 staff I remember:
The tech hall
-The year I started, we went 1/2 days as the " new & improved" school was being built.
Fond memories of gdhs.
-I loved gdhs a lot of great memories and friends. Try to find a couple of old friends as Valerie Hatcher and Brenda Taylor.
-I graduated at gosh in 1967 Pat Tuck
-1965 to 1970...great time, fond memories.
-When did they close in the front? I remember there was construction. The entry doors were left and right or straight ahead at the gym. The front courtyard was closed in, the library moved, we got a cafetorium and a new gym too.
-Maybe now is time to post reunion video I made...for homecoming
-Some of my favorite teachers from 1967 - 72 include Mr. McLaren (phys ed), Mr. Corning (history), Mrs. Williams (French), Mrs. Cruikshank (English), Mr. Sturm (maths), Mr. Lightfoot (history), Skippy - can't remember his name (geography), Mr. Hassett (English), Mrs. Darcie (history), Mr. Bingham (English), and a young woman from Scotland - Annie something? - who taught French and German. Also Mrs. Finn the librarian, who ran the Library Club (which was actually a lot more fun than it sounds).
-Think the Scottish French teacher was Miss Harrison. Or she was the the blond single teacher.
-I believe the Scottish French teacher was Ms. Campbell. Remembered fondly!
-That's right the two ladies roomed together. Miss Campbell and Miss Harrison.
-Skippy was Mr. Inglid or Jack the Bear!!
- that's right! Annie Campbell! She seemed very young when she started - I suppose she's aged like the rest of us ...
-Skippy Lovelock? Mr. Craig had the red Lotus.
-I'm pretty sure it wasn't Lovelock, although it may have started with an 'L'. His first name was Stan, I think. And yes, Mr. Craig had the Lotus - thanks!
-Rusty Lovelock taught Geography. Same year Tim Perrott. Remember your dad at Holy Cross.
-Mr Hall. Killbear park with Mr Hall and Mr Riley. Sir to you.lol.
-Skippy taught in the early 80s. I had him too. I believe he was on exchange from Australia for a year or so .
-We had a Skippy Hall, in the 70s, taught geography. I was on a trip he chaperoned to England. He was the best.
-That's it.. Mr. Hall
-always thought he was on exchange from Australia.. guess not
-Yes, Mr. Hall taught us geography/geology. I remember the sand/water table in his room. We didn't learn enough to look at the CN trestle and figure out if the bridge is a couple of thousand feet long the river the ate out the valley was just as big when it started or the little Silver Creek wrapping around John Street was big enough to carve out that valley, that is now the Ewing St park.
- He was definitely from Australia (hence the nickname), but given the length of time he was at the school, I doubt that it was on an exchange program.
-Mr Hall (Skippy) one of my favourite teachers. He was not an exchange teacher.
-We had the gawd aweful cafetorium with the fake shakespeare stage. There was big debate about the costs of building a real stage. Mrs. Gooding taught theatre arts and tried to make what the thrifty school board gave us work. I was on the lighting crew so the dances were free to watch from the catwalks or behind the stage in gym 1.
-Uh... it's MS. Gooding, if you recall, because (and I quote) "my marital status is none of anyone's business." Through such various provocative remarks, Ms. Gooding nourished us (with food for thought) so we could cultivate our best and most interesting selves. Sadly and warmly missed. #faveteacher
-Thank you I forgot, her lack of convention. She was amazing. The engineers and designers pinched many pennies with that addition. We started in the home ec room before there was a real classroom and filling out forms because the stage lighting was burning out. Anybody remember Ernie Forgrave?
-Mr. Forgave was an institution.
-Graduated ‘98. I had some good times there.
-I liked GDHS so much I spent 6+ years there. 😭
-Loved gdhs. Great times
-Had my very first boyfriend there. Dated the whole time.
-Good times!!....great memories!!
-Graduated in 2000.... will Never forget the Cosmo hall
-Best time of my life was in that school
-I miss it, would love to take a walk through those halls again
-What a great school! I had the best friends and the best teachers - especially Harry Hamilton, who was the best music teacher ever (: Great memories for me..
-Great school, amazing teachers, lots of good memories!
-Georgetown only had 2 schools when it opened. Hold that thought.
-And what did we learn?
-I have very fond memories of those days.
-I also have the bad memory of late year books. We switched to a new company that year and they did not meet deadlines. I don't think we got them till the next year started.
-Loved attending GDHS 1971 to 1976. Best years of my life! Fabulous teachers!
-Loved that school
-Graduated 1999. A lot of memories and stories.
-Gr 9&10... loved my memories and my Friends from this time in my life... 😊💞
-I believe when I started Grade 9 (Sept. 1967) there were approximately 1200 students and 4 years later (Sept. 1971) it was up around 1900. No wonder they kept making additions to the building! Of course it was the only high school in town at the time ...
-I so loved going to high school best times ever ! Rebel for life !
-lets see I have fond memories of GDH, especially the cafeteria and the boots mobile, two places I spent most of my time

-Had some good times and bad, but was a great school, lots to offer students if you were interested in the sports, thearter arts, or music. Rebel always

-It's still there? lol :-)
-I remember Bunny hopping in front of it with my Chevelle
-what year was this picture taken?
-That is a great picture Richard. I’m going to take one from the same point now to compare.
-Might be 1968 or 9. Second classroom at the end of the hall. It was Mrs. Douglas's English class.
-the view I had from Mrs Blaney's Latin class
