Updated: Nov 10, 2019

Mark your calendars for Reunion 2020, August 21st-23rd, 2020, Best Western Glengarry, Truro. More information will be updated soon.!!

Regardless of what graduating year you may be or whether you graduated from the Normal School, Provincial/Nova Scotia Normal College or the Nova Scotia Teachers College, you and your spouse/guest are invited to attend the 50th Annual Reunion of the Alumni Association of the Nova Scotia Teachers College. While special attention will still be given to all the “decade” classes (ending in ‘0’) everyone else is welcome too! Keep checking as details continue to be confirmed and the weekend agenda develops.

So, whether you graduated in a “decade” year or not, and regardless of your program, give your friends a call or drop them an email and get a bunch together to meet in Truro in August!  This can be your 22 year reunion or your 37 year reunion – it makes no difference, come and have some fun! The reunion will be held at the Best Western Glengarry Hotel in Truro.  Updates will be posted here as plans are made for another great weekend in Truro!
