Three new pages have been added to our website.
The Magee School and Family
History page has 4 articles and pictures documenting Magee Secondary's
Early History, Magee Family History, Magee's Kerrisdale, and Millenium
Magee. The first 3 articles were written by John Macdonald whose wife
Brenda (née Timleck, '71) is a great great granddaughter of Hugh Magee.
Her father, Gerry Timleck, operated the Magee Pharmacy at 49th and West
Boulevard from 1965 to 1985. The 4th article was written by Eric
Schieman (Retired) who was Principal at Magee from 1995 - 2001 when the
old Magee was demolished and the new Magee built. Many thanks and kudos
to these authors.
The other two new pages are Class Reunions and Links and Students Today. These pages include links
to other Class websites and to News Articles regarding Magee on VSB's
website. If your Class has a reunion, event, website or link you want
to include on these pages, send an email to Barry Rhoades, our
Information and Technology Member at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to these new pages, several more stories have been
added to the Sports page. Take a moment and read "The Planting of
a Pole Vaulting Passion", "Vicki's Racquet ... Heard Around
the World", and "Global Citizens Through Sport and
Travel". Your reaction will likely be, "That's amazing! I
never knew that!"
Hunt For Website Stories And
In developing our website, we have chosen not to try and
summarize 100 years of school achievements and activities in all the
various key categories.
Instead, we want to tell stories about individuals whose
experiences in the high school years have had a lasting influence on
the paths chosen in later years. For example, Dal Richard's experience
with the Magee Jazz Band no doubt influenced the career path he chose.
Do you have such a story or know about someone who has? Send us
your suggestion with some details and pictures and we will work to
include it on our website. Better yet, write the story up and send it
to us! By "us", we mean to Barry Rhoades, our Information and
Technology Member at email@example.com
Do you have a picture which would be appropriate to include in
the Centennial Book which Doug Sturrock our History Member is
compiling? Send it to him with appropriate identifying comments at firstname.lastname@example.org
