On March 28, 2023, I received the following email from Gregory MacDougall:
"I ran across your website and wondered if you would like these. This is a picture of my mother, Edith Myrna (Arthur) MacDougall, along with a paper clipping of the list of students she had in 1954 at Alma School (Alberton). My mother married Irwin MacDougall on December 30, 1957, in Summerside. They both died in 2017."
Some of you retirees may have been taught by Miss Arthur who later became Mrs. MacDougall.

Many thanks to Paul Sullivan, Southern Kings Consolidated School Principal, who allowed me to scan the images of the Southern Kings Family of Schools photos, courtesy of late Senator M. Lorne Bonnell. These images are of students and teachers, standing in front of or beside the school in the 1972-73 school year.
Many scans from Department of Education Annual Reports from 1951-1967 are now posted with permission from the Department of Education, via Maureen Flanagan-LeClair. Visit the links below. Simon Lloyd, was extremely helpful in locating these images for scanning from the Special Collections at UPEI's Robertson Library.
Many thanks to George Gaudet who sends the following image of students in Grades 1-10, 1947, from the St. Nicholas School in Muddy Creek.
