Well, just a couple of comments for me for now. Cheers to you Kev, for coming up with the idea of this site! *Throws confetti* for doing a really great job on the site yourself! It's looking great. I really hope we can use this forum to close the gaps that filled the years between then and now, to meet new friends, reminisce with old, and just have a whole lot of fun!!

Kudos to the person(s) responsible for this site. As an "original" and as the parent of a couple of grads, I'm very pleased to see that the "Woburn tradition" is alive and well. Keep up the good work and I'm certain that the memories and contributions will start flowing in.

I Just finished looking through this great web site. The picutes are great, alot of faces I recognize but having a senior moment having trouble remembering the names. Thanks to Mr.F. for the great pictures,keep them coming. Please keep up the great work on this web site. One picture that needs to be on there is Mr.Cook, gym teacher in his shorts, sexy legs back then. Seeing Mr.Cook in those shorts made the girls day. Thanks to Cathy for posting the web site.

There seem to be several Woburn alumni in the Peterborough area. Kathy Chapman, Ken Murphy, and Jane Guest was here but I am not sure if she still is. There are others whose names will come to me later no doubt. In any case it's interesting to see how quickly we are finding this alumni section, and also the time of year that it occurs to us to search Woburn! My dad was one of the people who started Curran Hall Tennis Club. This got me wondering whether, "if we returned to our old neighbourhoods and started knocking on doors, whether we would find ANY families still living there"??? would love to hear from Woburn Alumni, especially people connected with Urbania, or the trip to Italy in '71. Best wishes all!

Thank you so much to those of you that have put this website together. It was so great looking at the photos (especially since mine is on the home page!!!!!) I was very sad to see the people that are no longer with us. I knew some of them well while attending Woburn. Again, Thanks Beverley Lane

What a great website! I actually remember some of those photos from my old year books. Although the names allude me some of the faces I recall. Those were the days in our lives that helped to shape our futures. Again, thanks for the step back in time. Mr. Flahiff keep dusting off those old photographs.

Kevin: As i said before,this is a labour of love, and, I think I speak for all alumni, students and staff, in thanking you for this effort. So, dear friends, raise a glass to the wonderful last decades of the 20th century. We were really cookin' then, and, as the director of education, Earl Campbell described us, we were the flagship school of the Scarborough board. sadly, those times have come and gone, never to return. The province has levelled the schools to warehouses for kids. I recognize so many of the names and photos on this site, and I'm filled with a fond nostalgia for those great times. I miss you all. love, JW

I did not go to Woburn but knew a lot of people from the school. Still keep in touch with some, but there are a few out there I would still like to see and talk to. I would like to thank the person who put this site together. The photos in the gallery were great.

I am glad that I was referred to this website. I am sure we all want to know what happened to all those people we went to school with. It was one of the best times in our lives, and I am glad I am still here to read about. Very sad to read the memorials. Please keep in touch, all those from 1968-1971.

By design or circumstance, I think many of us drift away from our roots, high school being one of those roots. I have found the desire in recent years to reconnect with some of those roots, and have done so through the Classmates website. Having this website however, will be far more personal for us all. I'll check in regularly, and will be pleased to get an email from any old friends. Thanks Kevin, and all those involved in organizing the alumni activities.

Reading thru this site brings back memories, I thought, time had washed away. Many names strike a very familiar chord. Looking at the list in " Memorials ", I can't help but feel, both sad and blessed. Thank you Kevin, for taking us all, on a journey thru the past! It seems to " fit " like an old shoe. Greetings to the 67-71 crew members.

Wonderful site. I’ve enjoyed looking at some familiar names to see what everyone has been doing the past 26 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long, time sure does fly by. I was deeply saddened to recognize some of the names from the “those gone before us” section, both students and faculty. I was hoping for a long time that someone would take the time and energy to put together a site such as this. Well done. I’m looking forward to hearing or at the very least seeing some posts and comments from old friends and fellow alumni. Thanks for doing this…

Very pleased to have a site to connect with former alumni that isn't associated with a commercial site. Thank you for giving us this wonderful opportunity! One suggestion I might make is to create an ability to sort the list of alumni. Sorting by year would be my personal preference, so those you went through school with are easier to find. I think the ability to sort will become more important as more and more alumni join the site.

I wanted to say Thank You to Dawn and Carolyn for putting together such an incredible night on May 14th!
I have discovered where the Twilight Zone is and it is at your highschool reunion - so many memories came flooding back all at once. I had such a great time and it was so amazing to see so many familiar faces that I hadn't seen since the 80's!! Everyone looked so good!!! Wow! Thanks again - I know how hard it is to put that type of event together and I think that each and everyone of us who went truly appreciate all of Dawn and Carolyn's efforts! Looking forward to the next one.
Sandra Shatilla


I recently was made aware of this site. Excellent job. I have returned to Woburn at least once in the past 2 years to present the Walter Kostric Memorial Scholarship and have marveled at the changes that the "old school" has gone through. Keep up the great work. Go! Woburn Go!

Kevin, you must have graduated after me (1970) because I don't recognize your name. Thank you for all the work you have put into this, it really is wonderful.
I've just spend a couple very enjoyable hours going down memory lane, and hope to see more of my classmates (and my husband's - we "went steady" all though High School and then married in 1974. 31 years later, we're still together).
Congratulations again.

Oh my God! This website is amazing! I'm so glad I took the time to go down memory lane. Those were the good ole days. I can't believe it's been almost 20 years for me. I was hoping to catch a reunion, but it looks like I just missed one, maybe I'll catch the next one. Hope everyone that knew me is doing fantastic. Would love to hear from anyone.

WOW!!! What a GREAT website for us Woburnites!!! Seems like only yesterday, instead of over 30 years!!!

What a great idea! I was thinking about all the wonderful people I taught and worked with at Woburn C.I. and stumbled upon this web site. Now, perhaps I’ll be able to exchange e-mails with some of you. I wonder what you are all doing now. I hope you are well and happy. Jackie Cusack

Tonight I attended my 28th consecutive (and final) Woburn Commencement.
My grade nines from 2001-2002 graduated which brings to a conclusion the the last page of the last chapter of a truly wonderful career at Woburn.
This seems the best place I can think of to say: "Thank you very much to each student and every teacher who made those years a rich and tremendously rewarding way to spend a quarter century!"

Congratulations to Mr. Flahiff his retirement. He has truly been an icon at Woburn with his years of service and all the photos he had taken which he shared with so many of us.

First of all, congrats Kev! What a great site, and so well done!
I was planning on saying so many things here, but have been left absolutely devastated.
One of the reasons I keep looking up sites like this one, and Classmates and such, is.... well WAS... to find a dear old friend from my years at Wobs.
I had been trying to reconnect with Kerry Cochrane. She was one of the prettiest girls in school and I of course was way up there on the "geeky" list. But she never treated me as such. We shared a few classes together and I was always lucky enough to sit right next to her. She helped me and I'd like to think that I helped her.
Then when I signed up for Drivers Ed I was astounded to see her in my car. We spent weeks together forging a good friendship that lasted. She left Wobs (what seemed to me) suddenly, and was lost in my memories for years.
Then one day we were talking about learning to drive and I had a whopper of a tale to tell... this poor girl tried so very hard... I mean, she took it seriously enough, but have you ever heard of ANYONE getting in 3 accidents while learning to drive???!!! ( they also changed teachers after her second accident) and yet somehow....she passed and got her license on the first try.
It has taken a few days to get this e-mail off because of the memories. She was such a great person, and this news has rocked me deeply. My condolences to her family, especially her kids. I hope they read this and understand what a great impact she made on others in her life.
I would also like to express my sympathies on the loss of Jackie Anderson, Debbie Lees ( we went through grade school and Hudson and then Wobs together), Michelle Press, and another closer friend Dave Nasu.
I have been all over this country. I have some great memories of different times, places, and people. But still my mind and heart veer back to the days at Woburn. Maybe I should have paid closer attention.


Thanks,
Scott La Rochelle

So glad there is finally an alumni listing. I cant believe its taken me a whole year to find out about this! Cheers

Wow, it is great to see so many familiar faces and to have names recal happy (mostly) memories. I was there from 1972 - 1976, my brother Ron Wheaton until 1978. I still see some of the AV crew. It is hard to let go of memories. Ron passed away in 1992 but we still keep in touch with a couple of friends. High school was the best of times.

It's exciting to have a venue to check out what happened to everyone. I'll bet many people from Woburn have become extraordinary doctors, actors, office managers, lawyers..... I can't wait to read about old friends and see where everyone is in their lives. Thanks Kevin for giving us that opportunity.

I've just started exporing this site that you have put all this work into and I can't believe everything that you've put into it. I've already seen alot of familiar names that just bring back so many great memories. I haven't finished looking yet but I do hope that somewhere in here that there is some type of contact information should anyone be organizing a reunion of some sort. Selfishly I'd love to here of one for 1978-1982, but heh that just me. Thanks again.

A google search can turn up a lot of things..like this site. I saw the entries of a few old friends and learned that sadly, a couple of classmates and teachers had passed on.
I hope to get updated on a few more friends in the future.

Hello All,

I regret that I am a late arrival to the site but I must say that I've been impressed with what has been provided.
Kev, it really is a big job to undertake but you've done it with care and consideration. Well done!
I've seen the names of friends and acquaintances here and it has been quite a nostalgia trip.
To most of us, Woburn has become more than a just a school building on Ellesmere Ave, it was community and we grew with it. It was always a starting point and as we grew older and moved further away the feeling of belonging to the idea of Woburn never seems to leave you.
I look forward to hearing from anyone that survived the 1970's (and admit it)
Best to all,
Iain McEwan 1970 - 1975 (or thereabouts)


Great idea, coming up with the site, excellent way to catch up with old friends. Thanks

Hey Kevin, Once again thanks for keeping this great web site updated. I check in once and awhile, looking for a name that I can put a face and or a story with. Makes me laugh. Gotta remember that Wobs was a big part of everyones lives. Four years at high school doesn't seem long, but when I went to the reunion, and saw a few that I have known since grade one or before. Such a special night. Hopefully there will be another day to get together with past friends. Seeing over 100 friends in one night. Wow that was the best. Thanks Again.

It's great for an old sentimental geezer like myself to see a website for dear Woburn. I'm looking forward to our 50th in 2012/13, and hope to bring another Woburnite with me to the REUNION. Cheers,

I just wanted to show my appreciation toward some of the best teachers I have ever come across, and that's counting university professors.
Favourite Teachers (in no particular order):
1) Mr. Thomson: I hope I got the spelling correct. He was, I believe, our Science teacher and he also coached rugby. This man could take even a pile of dirt and make it seem interesting! Science class was always a blast. (not literally) hehe
2) Mrs. Gavin: Feisty little lady. Unfortunately she was misunderstood by most students as being too strict, which is too bad because even though she seemed hard on the outside, I always thought she was probably a very nice person on the inside. She just had to be tough because let's face it, we were troublemakers. ;)
3) Mr. Najarian: The greatest math teacher EVER, without question! He had faith in me even though I sucked horribly at math. (not an exaggeration) Being recognized by Najarian drove me full speed at Calculus. I was never an excellent math student, but Mr. Najarian's teaching style forced me to try to grow beyond my limitations. Simply put, he was awesome. Not to mention the one-handed circle-drawing on the chalk board. That was just plain cool. haha
4) Mrs. Lloyd: She always looked out for us and was always there to help. The year I was in it, the Woburn co-op program went on without a hitch and I'm sure Mrs. Lloyd had a big hand in that.
Sorry for those whom I've missed. My memory is certainly a bit fuzzy. Must have been all those late nights and the coffee. Hehe. I just wanted to pay my respects to these special people above and to let them know that they have definitely made a positive difference in this world.

Stumbled across this site while googling for no apparent reason. Fantastic.
I've spent a few hours looking up old friends and surfing through the different pages. A great trip down memory lane. I've sent e:mails to all my friends that I am still in contact with to direct them here.
Kevin and all involved keep up the great job your doing.

Thank you for a super site – and a great school!

I taught at Woburn for just a couple of years until I was moved on to West Toronto (in excess). But the time at Woburn was memorable and stands out as a time when I really loved going to work every day. The students were fun people who were keen to learn. The staff were amazing.

Among the memories: Gene Fong and his dedication to AIDS awareness. He arranged for the lovely speaker (Melinda?) to come and talk to us in that huge assembly hall. Winter in the portables - we had some adventures there – the bird trapped in the roof comes to mind! We rescued it by removing a ceiling tile, waiting till it flew into the light, closing the curtains and opening one to attract him!  Getting to “Siberia” through knee-high snow was a challenge to anyone, especially an Aussie who was unused to icy conditions. Lunch-time in the quad. Spirit Day was always fun, everyone celebrating the school colours. And Christmas decorations – our door won the prize!

Oh, there were English and Legal Studies classes too, and I have to say that I enjoyed them all. Now that I’m back in Australia, I think of Woburn with great fondness. What a great bunch you were.

Thanks again,

Jackie Cusack


Just found this site almost by accident but happy just the same. So cool that you have taken the time to put this together Kevin. Over the years I have often wondered how our fellow classmates were doing and have recently connected with some on facebook. As I live away I am hoping that this will be a good venue to re-acquaint with some old friends. Cheers everyone!!
