Westvale PS play celebrates 20 years
December 10th, 2014
Twenty-two talented Grade six students from Westvale Public School are performing an interactive play called “Life in the Old School House,” during the Wonders of Winter Festival in Waterloo Park.
The play takes place in the 1820s school house and reflects the education system and teaching style during that time period. The school house, now located in Waterloo Park, is considered a Historical Site. It moved from its original location in 1842, where MacGregor Public School currently sits, to become a family home in Berlin (Kitchener). In 1890, the school house was moved again to its current permanent location, Waterloo Park.
During the performance, audience members participate in the spelling bee and multiplication tables, and if they don’t obey, they hear the wrath of Miss MacIntosh.
Westvale PS students have been performing this play for 20 years to an audience of 1500 people each year. It’s a wonderful opportunity for these students to learn about local history and share it with the greater community.
The play is open to the public and admission is free. Donations are accepted and all funds received go towards making capital improvements to the school house.
