125th Anniversary Commemorative History Book: Humberside Life Through the Years

As part of Humberside’s 125th anniversary, the Alumni Association, with the assistance of Humberside students and staff, will be producing our 125th Anniversary Commemorative History: Humberside Life through the Years. This book will be a 125th Anniversary snapshot of as many Humberside memories as can be fit between its covers.

We are appealing to you, members of our alumni community, to help us gather content for this very exciting publication. The range of things we’re looking for is almost limitless: photographs of any aspect of your years at Humberside, fascinating documents (posters, flyers, artwork, an old report card, ticket stubs etc. etc.), recollections (these can be submitted in a document format, or we can set up an interview with you and transcribe it). These recollections can be accounts of memorable Humberside events and figures, moments in school history, daily life in the halls and classrooms through the years. The list of potential material is limited only by the range of the items you submit.

So dig up those scrapbooks, those old folders stored in the backs of closets, the bottoms of drawers, and help us fill the 125th Anniversary Commemorative History with your memories.  Deadline for submissions is April 3rd,  2017. Scans and documents can be emailed to us at hci125th@gmail.com    Questions about the book and the kind of material we’re looking for can also be submitted using the same address.  If you prefer to use Canada Post, the school address is:

Att’n: Karen Maguire/Tim Prior
Humberside CI   280 Quebec Ave   Toronto, ON  M6P 2V3

Reunion Choir

Ah the classics, Zadok the Priest, Bridge over Troubled Water, and how could you forget Hallelujah Chorus and of course our famed HCI fight song!

“Those were the days my friend….” If you would like to re-live those days of singing and want to join the reunion choir at Humberside’s 125th Anniversary celebrations, please email Miss Janet Keele at d_thomas@sympatico.ca and let her know. Please include your maiden name if applicable and what part you sing ( soprano, alto, etc.) At this time practices will be later in 2017.

Decade Rooms

Do you remember what life was like when you went to Humberside? Forgot?  Well we want to jog your memory by setting up decade rooms for the 125th. Each room will showcase a decade and its Humberside memories and we need your help! Volunteers are needed to organize room content, help with setup for the weekend and supervise the room during the weekend for an hour or so. We are also looking for any memorabilia you have that you are willing to donate or lend to the alumni. If you are interested in any aspect please email Doug Wighton at iwndry@hotmail.com   placing Decade room in the email subject line

 Volunteers Needed

We will need volunteers for several areas prior to and during the weekend. If you would like to volunteer please email Jacquie Raidl at jacqr@sympatico.ca

Volunteers will be needed for putting together the welcome bags before the weekend, during registration, guides at the school, decade room supervisors and general help. An hour or two of your time is appreciated.

For Decade room volunteers email Doug Wighton at  iwndry@hotmail.com

To be a part of the reunion choir email Janet Keele at d_thomas@sympatico.ca
