Sea Island School grade 4-5 class – Mrs. Catherine. Rogers, 1957/58
Photo kindly provided by Mrs. Isobel Dunn of Salt Spring Island, B.C.
Who can help the Sea Island Heritage Society confirm the identifcations of these students and fill in the missing blanks. Thank you.
NB – the same photo was kindly submitted by Sabine Eiche, January 7, 2012. Sabine added in a January 8, 2011 email, “I believe the girl between Jo-Ann Gillespie and Donna Billy is Stacy Copland, not Heather Dagenais, as on your list.” When I looked at the photograph with the intention of putting names to the faces (before I saw your lists), I remember that the name Stacy came to me out of my 'memory bank'.
The surest way to arrive at correct identifications is, obviously, to track down the individuals themselves.
Never a dull moment!

Can anyone please help confirm Sabine’s suggestion? Thanks
