Tuesday December 10th is revised opening date for the new Thomson Collegiate school building

NEWS UPDATE, NOVEMBER 27th:
According to a reliable source, the revised estimate for opening of the new school is Tuesday December 10. Apparently the move from the old school building will occur over 4-day break period, with Friday December 6 designated as a P.A. Day and Monday December 9 as Moving Day, and students welcomed to the new building the following day, December 10th. These revised plans were announced on November 27th and are subject to change.

NEWS UPDATE, NOVEMBER 28th:
Urban Toronto has published an interesting news article about planned redevelopment on the Thomson-Bendale lands.


The principal of David and Mary Thomson Collegiate has sent a notice to all families announcing that the opening of the new school building — originally scheduled for September — has been delayed for indefinite period. Read the letter below:

“Thank You” to all who attended our school’s 60th Anniversary celebration!

We invite you to share your photos and memories from our May 4th reunion festivities and the social event that followed in the evening.

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
