Two Hundred Years of Excellence

by P.Holder - Saturday, August 7, 2004

Four former students; Mona Malik, Craig Estabrooks, Clarissa Mak and David Cullinan, under the supervision of Richard and Sandi Thorne, are spending the summer researching the history of Saint John High School.

Reading microfiche of old newspapers of the city, sorting through archival material throughout the school and interviewing former administrators, teachers and students will provide these students with the background material to develop a compelling history of the school.

The Thornes will utilize this material as they develop a book focusing on the early history of the school, discuss student organizations, consider the cultural and sporting life of the school and highlight personal anecdotes.

It is anticipated that the book will be available for this Christmas.
