Adding to our stories about Cartierville School: we have an Honour Card from 1924

I am really pleased that over the years many people have added information to our previous posts about Cartierville School, which I attended as a Grade 4 student in the 1950s.

A site visitor named Melissa has written to me by email (May 11, 2023):

My name is Melissa and I’ve been trying to find out if my nana/grandmother went to an english or French elementary school in Quebec.  While searching, I found this honor card my great grandmother received from Cartierville School in 1924.

The following subsequent messages are also from May 11, 2023; Jaan wrote:

That is wonderful! I will add it to my Preserved Stories site. This is very valuable.

Melissa wrote:

Thank you so much. It means a lot to me. I think I read that the school opened in 1920 and if that is true then the school would have been 2 years old and now that document is 99 years old. It’s very special.

Thank you again.

Very special for sure. It’s a beautiful story. I will post it in a day or two. It is wonderful that this honour card has been saved. I attended the school three decades later.

    So many familiar names and faces. By this time I was in Morison School. Many of us met up again in MCHS during the next four years.
