I met several teachers at the celebration who had attended one-room schools and some had taught in them too. In 1934, Sam Yashuk went to one in Maple Grove in Grimsby, Ontario. He was only 5-years-old and wanted to go with his brothers. There was no Kinderarten, so he went into Grade 1. He has great memories of those years.
Joyce Gould Watts attended S.S. No. 6 South Elmsley in Lombardy on the road to Rideau Ferry. She went with her sister, Audrey from 1937-1945. This school had been boarded up for years, but I'm pleased to report, renovations have begun to fix it up.
