Week 21 – Yearbook

The prompt at 52 Ancestors this week is Yearbook, so I decided to try to find information about my mother’s high school years.

According to my mother, she attended high school at Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute (KCVI). For most of my life I was told that she had to leave high school in year 10 to help her mother when her youngest sister was born. As mum got older the story changed and she talked about graduating from year 12.

To try to solve the mystery, I turned to the website KCVI and QECVI Legacy Website. Although I was unable to find any mention of my mother, the website which holds copies of old yearbooks, gave an interesting insight into high school life at the time my mother would have been attending.
