A School For Girls

This is Bishop Strachan School for girls which is the oldest private school for girls in Canada having been established 150 years ago. The school moved to this Gothic building in the Forest Hill neighbourhood in 1915 and continues to expand and modernize its facilities. There are many events taking place this year to celebrate the 150th anniversary.

Thanks for the welcome back. Did you attend this school?

Lord that is some building. All schools should look like that. I don't know why girls have all the luck! Yeah, I'm just kidding. Not too many schools for girls in our area, although some folks are advocating for single sex classrooms. They seem to think girls will excel even more if they're not distracted by hormonal males.

And their uniforms were always pretty distinctive! Haven't seen any students in a few years, wonder if they still wear the 'middy'?

And still only for girls? Here in the Netherlands this is looked upon as an old fashioned idea and it don't consist anymore.
