When Glebe Collegiate Institute first opened its doors to students in 1922, World War I had ended just four years earlier. The mood was celebratory, the Jazz Age was in full swing.
On Friday October 28, the cafeteria at Glebe Collegiate will be transformed into a 1920s Jazz Club where alumni, current and former staff, students, parents, and community friends will gather to celebrate Glebe Collegiate’s first decade – the roaring twenties.
