History of Prince Street School

The latest to come out of the Island Lives project is a history of Prince Street School, a printed version of a 1961 address to the Prince Street Home and School Association by the school’s Principal Mabel Matheson. In her introduction:

This venerable structure is impregnated with the extraordinary qualities of mind and spirit possessed by the host of inestimable students and teachers who have given of their talents unstintingly to this school during the past 90 years, and so it has acquired a personality all its own.

It’s hard to imagine anyone delivering a 30-page address to a Home and School meeting these days, but we’re lucky she did, as it’s an invaluable capsule history of the school.
