Sat. May 4, 2019: Thomson’s 60th anniversary reunion & celebration


Your Alumni, in collaboration with the school administration, have settled on a date for our 60th Anniversary and Farewell to the Old School celebrations in 2019.

Saturday May 4, 2019 is the date for Thomson CI’s 60th Anniversary reunion and celebration.

There will definitely be an “open house” at the old school during the afternoon, with the usual set-up of decade rooms and other areas in which to reconnect with fellow former Thomsonites.

In the evening, there will be a gala Pub Night at an off-campus site, which we hope to announce soon. A luncheon for present and former staff is another possibility. We expect to have a full schedule lined up by this summer. It will be announced in our fall newsletter, but our website (www.thomsonforever.ca) and our Facebook pages will probably have details much earlier than that.

If you live in the GTA and would like to volunteer to help with planning and organizing or assisting on the day itself, we’d love to hear from you: info@ThomsonForever.ca

Construction has started – New school to open in September 2019

Great news! Construction of the new David and Mary Thomson school building started today, April 17, 2017. The general contractor has taken control of the site, located in the open field north-west of our present school. Perimeter fencing has been installed and soon heavy machinery will begin foundation work on the site.

Opening of the new David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute is scheduled for September 2019. This web site will follow progress of the construction work in coming months.

The Thomson Alumni Association is planning a 60th anniversary celebration for the school, which will be hosted in May 2019, and a perfect way for all alumni to salute our old school building before its demolition and the hand-off of its proud legacy to the new building.
