Happy 100th Galbraith School

 Galbraith School is 100. The school is hosting an open house on Friday, February 8 from 1 pm to 3 pm with displays, live music and tours of the building. Open to the public. Reminisce, learn the history of the school and more.

In honour of the Centennial, here's a few pictures from Galbraith's past, starting with one of Dr. Galbraith, the school's namesake. Hope to see lots of people at the event.
