Celebration of Major Ballachey Public School’s 100th Anniversary Postponed
Major Ballachey Public School’s planned celebration of its 100th anniversary has been postponed due to current and pending CUPE job action.
The event, which was scheduled for October 10 from 6-7:30 p.m. will be rescheduled for another time later this year. Once a new date has been selected, it will be communicated with the community.
Major Ballachey Public School was named for Major Panayoty Percy Ballachey who was killed in action during World War I. Ballachey had been involved in public education, serving as a Trustee for the former Brantford Board of Education. Constructed in 1919, the school’s naming honours the community’s debt to Ballachey’s ultimate sacrifice.
