1955 on the North side of the school,
notice the pant legs rolled up to
mount their steeds. How
times have changed notice no locks on
the bikes and do you think those
six guns would be allowed in school
Jerry Stachow 1952/3. "One teacher
Before a curtain was put up to divide
the school into two rooms.
Then Mrs. Eastwood came shortly
afterwards after Jerry left
another teacher was hired...I think
her name was Audrey. In this
picture behind Jerry is
the Mackay farm on the corner of
Westney road and Kings Highway 7.
As well as attending PS#9 4-H Club was
part of Greenwood living.
I can recognize Bonnie Gardiner and
Nancy Nicholson...who do
you recognize from this 1958 Photo?
So what is with those six shooters?
Beth Hill and one of the Klassen
pretend it is high noon. More rolled
up pant legs...we all rode bikes.
Are all the 6 Maple trees still
standing? Great fun to walk the fence
and see if you could make it from tree
to tree. If you look
real close someone is doing that very
thing. Summer fun
By 1956 I was really starting to get
into photography...well I was 10!
Always looking for life around
Greenwood this photo of "The Harvest"

West end of the school
