Message for Delta Secondary School Teachers & Grads
With the closing of Delta Secondary School in June 2018, opportunities to visit “the school we love so well” are becoming very limited.
On May 26, 1967, a time capsule cylinder was lowered into the ground in the northeast corner of the front lawn with the promise that it will be raised for all to see again in fifty years. Next year the time capsule will be raised after the fifty year commitment is fulfilled. Although the actual date for the raising of the capsule has not yet been confirmed at this point, it is our hope that it would occur fifty years to the day on Friday May 26, 2017.
We would like to see as many of the graduates from the class of 1967 as possible attend the event when it does happen next year. If you know of anyone that was there when the ceremony took place and they are not members of the alumni association, please let them know about it. They can get in touch with us by using the contact information in this newsletter.
Please use the following information below to contact us. We will try to answer your request as soon as we can.
