15th Annual Alumni Night, , 2015

Peter Martin

Football, Cheerleaders and Peter Martin: As we mark the 95th anniversary of the school, we will also be honouring one of Port Credit Secondary School's legendary teachers: Peter Martin. During his career at PCSS from 1965-1991, Peter Martin was a teacher, department head, mentor and coach - as well as a professional athlete. Whether you remember Mr. Martin as your teacher or your football coach, we would love to see you at the 2015 Alumni Night in May, to help us celebrate his illustrious teaching and coaching career.

We will also be honouring the cheerleaders and footballs teams. If you played for the PCSS Warriors or if you were one of the gracious and energetic girls who cheered them on, then this is a special invitation for you to attend this year's event!

Honour Board: The school's Honour Board needs to be brought up-to-date, via the purchase of additional bronze bars, and the engraving of student names. The Honour Board is current up to 2011, but bronze bars need to be purchased for PCSS students who have graduated in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

PCSS Marching Band: PCSS teacher Kevin Baker has made a proposal to create a school marching band. This will be the first time in recent memory that PCSS has had a marching band. The first stage will be a Drum Line, and the purchase of the drums will be funded by the school, by donations from the general public, and by donations from any alumni who wish to support this initiative.

Order your Spring flowers at the Reunion! Spring is in the Air! We are pleased to offer you another opportunity to purchase annuals for your cottage, home and balcony garden. All funds raised support the Honour Wall opposite the auditorium at Port Credit Secondary School. You can place an order by completing the form.
