Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
It has been so exciting hearing the audiences' reactions to the play "Schoolhouse" by Leanna Brodie. People have told me the play really captures the life inside a one-room schoolhouse and they liked the way we brought it to life. I am very proud of the way the cast and crew of our production have captured the "magic" of the era. Congratulations to everyone involved!
The audience reactions to "Schoolhouse" by Leanna Brodie has been fantastic! Standing ovations!!! Get your tickets at the Kanata Theatre Box Office 613 831-4435 or on-line at kanatatheatre.com where you can select your seats. The play runs until Saturday, February 18 at 8pm.
I would very much like to borrow or purchase a 1867-1927 plaque for the set "Schoolhouse". Please get in touch with me!

Can you help?
Hello; just discovered your website while searching for info on my great Grandmother Margaret Costello. I recently found her obituary in the Ottawa Journal, which states that before her marriage she was "a school teacher at the Montreal School and also at Leitrim". She turned 18 while still at home in Freelton Ontario, in 1891, and married Albert Blais in 1905. I assume her teaching career would have been during those 14 years. Have you found any information on either the schools she taught at or Maggie herself? I would so appreciate any help you could give!
I've recently purchased the schoolhouse in Marlbank. I'm now renovating it to reveal one of the original classrooms.
S.S. 18, is a 2 room schoolhouse in Marlbank it was built in 1905.
Do you know of a good resource for renovation information for schoolhouses?
You can check out my blog.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my book is in the display case just outside the Beaverbrook Library (Campeau Drive) in Kanata. It is part of a display about 'back to school'. Have a look!
Emial Gina directly if you can help with the following:
I am looking for a picture of SS 22 Chingacousy schoolhouse. It was on the corner of Bovaird and Number 10, in now what is Brampton. My Mother and all her 9 siblings went there. They where taught by Mossie Bovaird. I have tried the Bovaird house and Peel Archives and no one has a picture of it. My mothers family are all deceased so I have no way of getting this picture.
Thanks for any help Gina email@example.com
