The school opened it's doors in September 1992, the same year "Achy Breaky Heart" was topping the pop charts and "Silence of the Lambs" won the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Other prominent events that occured in 1992 include Hurricane Andrew; the Westray mine disaster; the Charlottetown Accord was rejected in anationwide referendum; and Dr. Roberta Bondar became the first Canadian woman in space. Ralph Klein was elected Premier of Alberta and the North American Free Trade Agreement was signed.

Some of the school's more famous alumni include singer Keisha Chante, NHL member Jonathan Matsumoto and Canadian senior basketball Olympic team member Courtney Pilypaitis.

The reunion will kick off with a series of meet and greet events on Wednesday, Oct. 24based on the particpant's graduation year. Alumni who graduated between 1993 and 1997 will meet at Jonny Canuck's Bar and Grill; graduates from 1998 to 2002 will meet at the Broadway Bar and Grill on Portobello Blvd.; 2003 to 2006 grads will meet at the Barely Mow; and the more recent graduates will meet at D'Arcy McGee's on Centrum Blvd.

The school will be open to families the following day with entertainment, a BBQ lunch and co-ed touch football and basketball. The day will be topped off with a dance in the cafetorium featuring a group of alumni calling themselves The Beer Nuts. Pariticipants will have to purchase tickets for the evening event at a cost of $25 per ticket.

A mass will also be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24at 10 a.m. The mass will be presided over by Msgr. Leonard Lunney who presided over the schools opening mass and blessing in 1992.
