Thanks to all of you for sending in photos– I am going to document a few of them.

Stella Waugh

I certainly wasnt built for a tube top. Much fun with that Maryann girl. I remember that day like it was yesterday. We were on our bikes and Craig Robertson came around the corner a bit too fast and we tried to jump the curb and ended up with skinned knees. Good thing the reporter took pic first. There’s your chuckle for the day!

Carly Drummond

Stella Waugh you look awesome! And literally look the same!

Lori Devlin

Stella Waugh I loved those Buffalo sandles but they didn’t have much protection for our feet

The group would be both a grade 12 graduation (Junior Matriculation) and grade 13 (Senior Matriculates) (auto correct filled that). I dated this as 1955 but I’m wondering 54. I know you had a grad photo which included Diane Henderson where she would have been receiving her senior matric and she is in this photo receiving her Junior-a year earlier. I tried to locate your  photo but so far have not had any success-not with the search.

I have re-listed the grads which might be more useful to you. I can’t say that the list is 100% accurate-there are still some I look at, recognize but the name escapes me-sometimes the names came to me after I had passed them by.


Front Row, left to right:- Edith Ann Cummings, unknown, Kathleen Coyles, Diane Henderson, ? McAdam, Motherwell (principal), Hannah Stanley, Faye Robertson, ? Guerard, Marriet Florent, ? Duff or Tysick.

Soviet Union — Sputnik 3 Launched

The Soviet Union successfully launches the Sputnik 3 satellite on May 15th. The satellite carried twelve experiments into space and its mission was to study the composition of the atmosphere and cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. At the time, Sputnik 3 was the largest satellite ever launched and it weighed nearly 3000 pounds. The cone-shaped satellite remained operational for 692 days before it re-entered Earth’s atmosphere in April of 1960, disintegrating upon re-entry.

Here is the old ball park once again…Photo from Scott Langstaff-Photo Found this old photo in my grand mothers photo album. She grew up in Carleton Place. Guessing this is from the 30’s?

Dan Williams Yep the old ball park. I scraped those base lines and lined that field a few times with my dad. I remember going to watch him catch on the Legion ball team and the little ticket window coming in. Also remember watching the odd game from the roof of the stands.

Hi Linda
   When they got the time capsule from the CP high school there was a bottle in it with a paper inside, what was written on the paper?

Peter Bradley— Photo–CPHS taken from the top of the water tower when the “new” addition was being built in the early sixties

Everyone thought Bruce Wilson had gone a bit crazy when he demanded the cornerstone of his high school be removed because he was convinced a time capsule was behind it. In November of 1998 they changed their minds. Two stonemasons clambered up scaffolding at the edge of Carleton Place High School and chipped out the stone inscribed with the date the school was built and the name of the chairman of the board on opening day 75 years ago.Nestled behind it was a cement-covered dry gin bottle, uncorked and empty with the exception of a tightly rolled, lined sheet of paper. The note, the newspapers and another note, which was tucked into a gin bottle – accompanying the capsule, were all so dry and tightly folded that they could not be fully read. And tucked behind it sat a sealed copper box, envelope-sized in length. “I was pretty happy to see they had found them,” said Mr. Wilson, a Grade 12 student. “Everyone had thought I was kind of crazy.” November 1998-The Time Capsule of CPHS

About the photo above

Donna Mcfarlane 1961 graduation ceremony was delayed until march 16 1962 until the addition was completed

Peter Bradley 1960, The last time I climbed up the tower before moving to England. The teachers were Miss Mullett, Miss Powell, Mr Lawn, Mr Thompson, Mr Lighthart, Mr Ross and Mr Palmateer. and I missed Miss Sinclair. (Go to the bottom of the class)

Gail Grabe Peter Bradley Don’t forget Miss Sinclair!

Peter Bradley Gail Grabe Oh how could I Scuddy Sinclair and Latin and Ancient History. I still have the text books! Amo amas amat, Do, dara, ditty, datum!

Gail Grabe As I recall, history class was a guess as to which paragraph you would have to memorize in order to stand and recite verbatim as she went down each row. Occasionally she started with a different row…yikes!

Sandra Mailey Grade 13 departmental exams in June 1961, were written in Memorial Church Hall to spare us the distraction of the construction noise.

Sandra Mailey Our class graduation was the first to take place in the new auditorium …October 1961.

Linda Gallipeau-Johnston 1960 – first year of high school and the addition was going in. The biggest thing I remember is that stairs were still on the front of the school – that’s where we stood to get sorted out into grades!

David Flint the ‘vinyl village’ was just a field back then ….awesome pic

Linda…I hope this message finds you well! When we were sorting through my mom’s things we came across a few boxes of my grandmother’s (Gladie Dowdall) that my mom hadn’t touched. In there was the CPHS graduation program from 1936 & 1937!! I emailed them to the museum earlier today. But THE absolute best find is the attached Poem written about “The Commercial” students for their 1937 graduation. Enjoy 🙂
