From the Vaults
by Dan Mullins and Legal & Archives Services
On the advent of the 25th anniversary of the school board, we dug up some objects and documents that have stood the test of time.
An embossing press which has been in continual use since the founding of the board, and several artifacts from the intervening years are currently on display in the main hall of the Head Office on Brookdale Avenue.
You can also find copies of the minutes from the first meetings of the Lester B. Pearson School Board’s Council of Commissioners in the Summer and Fall of 1998. We have reproduced these below, and provided an interactive abridged and annotated version of the minutes from the very first meeting. We hope you will enjoy seeing some familiar faces and reading some of the things we discovered.
