West Island College TURNS 40!
On Wednesday, January 22nd, students, parents, and special guests gathered for an All School Assembly to kick off a year’s worth of celebrations for WIC’s 40th anniversary. Students learnt about the history of WIC from its humble beginnings to the innovative and dynamic school that it is today.
West Island College is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1974 by Terry D. Davies, in response to the need for an academic program dedicated to preparing students for post secondary studies and for the reality of contemporary Canadian society. The College was first established in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, and moved to its present location in 1978 to accommodate its growing student body.
Throughout the College's history, it has met with outstanding success in each of its pursuits. This fact is easily substantiated by the College's rapid growth. The original campus, from a modest genesis of 40 students, now accommodates 450 students in a custom built school.
Presentations were made by Terry Davies, the school’s Founder and Michel Martin, former Headmaster. Former Headmasters who were not able to attend submitted their fond memories and their best wishes which were read by the school's Directors. Mr. Lafrance, WIC's current Headmaster closed the event with a ceremonial cake cutting while the students cheered Happy 40th Anniversary WIC!
Coming up in February: Students and Faculty will share the stage to perform the incredible "Les Misérables."
