The homey atmosphere - Teachers and Students all knew each other and really cared about each other.
The Hot Healthy Cafeteria meals for 25cents- all home cooked - that was very important to those of us who went directly to the arena for figure skating and often did not get home until late.
Cadet Days - I think they should bring them back.
Mr. McSpadden taught me at Holbrook, was shop teacher at Burgessville and when I got to NDHS he was there teaching Shop and Math.
Mrs. Miller would be so proud to know that I even still have my Home Ec apron.
I will never forget the day that Mr. St.John took my "Tale of Two Cities" comic version book - I was shaking in my shoes when I went to the office to retrieve after school.
Helping Mrs. Bucholtz file the student pictures in their respective files except for the Strachan Triplets - we just put them on Mr. Strachan's desk for him to file.
Failing my Grade 12 Chemistry by l mark but going back and taking Special Commercial plus my Chemistry sure paid off when my husband bought his Ambulance Business.
