Did you know that Mt. Sentinel once had an extra-curricular Calculus Club?

Or that the current band room at W.E. Graham used to be the SD8 District School Board office?

The 2020-2021 academic year marks the 70th anniversary of both of our current secondary schools in the Slocan Valley. Mt. Sentinel and W.E. Graham will be celebrating this milestone year and we are looking to the community for stories and tributes to commemorate education in the Slocan Valley since the 1950s!

Are you a former or current student, parent, or teacher of one of our valley schools? Did you play team sports, act in a drama production or have a memory of a school competition? We’d love to hear from you!

Please visit to share an anecdote or special memory of our valley schools.

We are looking for:

  • Photos (both historic and contemporary)
  • Stories of celebrated events
  • Multi-generational connections
  • Quotes

Community submissions will be collected for consideration in a special commemorative publication to be released in 2021. If you wish to submit a photo, please email directly to

Photo Caption: A photo of a Mount Sentinel class from 1950 is one of the archival pictures located from the UBC Special Collections.
