Dave Alexander and Ryan McManaman, history teachers at OSCVI, received
the Governor General’s Award for excellence in Teaching History in
November 2014. These teachers introduced local history to their students
by assigning them to research and study individual former OSCVI
students who served and were killed during the First and Second World
Wars. From this research the students developed “soldier packs” of
digitized information on their assigned soldiers. This inspiring project
found the students taking responsibility for preserving the memory of
local soldiers who died at about their own age.
The teachers and some of
their students will be making a presentation on their special project
in the Theatre Arts Room of OSCVI.
This will be followed by a visit to
the Memorial hall and the Heritage room to observe the projects

Seventy-five years ago, March 1st was an exciting day for the people of Owen Sound when CFOS took the air. Today, we have so many choices in how we get the news. Radio is only one of these.

Bayshore Broadcasting Corporation, one of Ontario’s fastest growing private broadcasters, was built around AM 560 CFOS which celebrated its 75th anniversary on March 1st, 2015. Originally operating with just 100 watts at 1470 on the dial, CFOS continues to be the favourite radio station of the citizens of Grey and Bruce counties.
Today the Owen Sound studios are also home to Mix 106 and Country 93 on the FM dial while Bayshore Broadcasting also has FM stations in Port Elgin, Goderich, Wasaga Beach and Orillia. Join us at “the radio station” to hear about the past and observe how radio works today.
