Throwback Thursday

With Labour Day just around the corner which signals the start of a new school year, this week’s Throwback Thursday Picture is of Gordon McGregor Public School. The school named after the founder of the Ford Motor Company of Canada in Ford City (East Windsor), was opened in 1924 the same year this picture was taken. The school opened with twelve classrooms and because of the explosive population growth of Ford City, and addition was opened with twelve additional classrooms in 1927. In 1931 students started to take Grade Nine courses and after a couple of years Grade 10 classes were added. After amalgamation with Windsor in 1935, the school returned to Kindergarten to Grade 8 instruction. After 92 years of educating young minds, Gordon McGregor Public School closed its door for the final time in June 2016.
