I attended their production and thoroughly recommend it. The dinner was also delicious and included homemade pies! There were many people in the audience who had attended one-room schools, mainly in the upper Ottawa Valley.
Joyce Souliere went to S.S. No. 8 St. George, Ontario. She remembers how well behaved all the students were when the school superintendent came to check up on the teachers. When he left, all "hell" broke loose! The school is now a daycare for the village.
Gabrielle (Tourangeau) Burgess from Pembroke barely remembers going to a one-room schoolhouse since her school had burned down in Calumet Island, Quebec. The nuns they had as teachers were strict, but the children listened well or they would get the strap. A new school was built and Gabrielle beleives it is still standing.
Bill Crogie recalls the good old days and fond memories when he attended S.S. No. 7 Bromley in Douglas, near Eganville. There was a junior and a senior room.
Carole (McEachren) Mulroy attended S.S. No. 13, Ekfrid Township, Middlesex County, Appin, Ontario, and her friend Mary Filhaber went to a school in Hopefield, Ontario.
