Alumni and staff spanning five decades came out to commemorate former junior school’s semicentennial

Alumni and staff spanning half a century of Delview Secondary’s history came out to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary last week.

Former students and teachers from the one-time junior school joined current attendees and staff as they browsed 50 years of yearbooks and hundreds of photos displayed throughout the halls and classrooms on Friday, Feb. 22, while several teachers delighted the crowd while performing music in the cafeteria.

To close the night, local band The Oakstones — comprised of recent Delview grads Lucas Davies, Bradley Lambert, Nick Giffen and Jacob Andreson — performed a full 45-minute acoustic set before an enthusiastic packed house.
