As the oldest public high school in Quebec (1873), Westmount High School’s rich history is an important part of the heritage of the cities of Westmount and Montreal as well as the Province of Quebec. Westmount students fought in both World War I and World War II. Some perished in the wars, making the ultimate sacrifice for Canada and our community. They are honoured and memorialized by the school on our war memorial plaques located in the foyer of the building.

Students from Ms. Chantal Clabrough’s secondary IV history classes created digital profiles of former Westmount High School students who gave their lives in WWII. Through archival research (online) and with the material in the school vaults including yearbooks and service photographs, students have been able to create digital profiles memorializing the lives and contributions of our fallen WHS students.

This is an ongoing project with the goal of students completing all profiles of the names on the plaque.

Please contact cclabrough@emsb.qc.ca if you have information on any of the names listed above.
