KCVI & QECVI Legacy Website
The Limestone District School Board of Trustees voted to build a new composite intermediate and secondary school in Kingston to consolidate secondary students from Kingston Collegiate & Vocational Institute (KCVI), Queen Elizabeth Collegiate & Vocational Institute (QECVI) and relocate Grade 7 and 8 intermediate French Immersion/Extended French students from Module Vanier. The school is being constructed on the former QECVI property on Kirkpatrick Street.
As part of the work to bring together the two secondary school communities, a team of board, school and community volunteers have been working to collect and catalogue hundreds of pieces of memorabilia and artefacts from both KCVI and QECVI. Some of these items will be showcase in the new school. Due to the volume of items, however, others will be available for viewing on this legacy website. The website will include items such as school yearbooks, news clippings, photographs, personal stories, etc. You can view on the website or download.
The KCVI/QECVI Legacy Project has been supported by grants from the Canadian government's Young Canada Works Building Careers in Heritage and the City of Kingston and Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries and HIstoric Sites with a Heritage Foundation Grant.
