This is the school I went to from kindergarten to grade 6 , so it's crazy to see it abandoned like this and I really would love to get inside! The school was built sometime in the early 1950's since then there has been a fire that meant the whole right wing had to be rebuilt. The school was permanently closed in June 2011 due to too many necessary expensive repairs and has been abandoned ever since... However, there is a loud buzzing/humming noise coming from the inside of the school which you can hear if you put your ear up to the door, so who knows what could be going on in there.. I found a set of lock keys hidden in a rotting piece of wood and will definitely be returning to see if they can open anything up! Update... returned tonight (January 2) to find out that the keys don't open anything up, but the building is definitely in use!! I could only get one clear(ish) picture of the inside of the building but the lights are still on... [u]OAP Writes:[/u] F.M. Heard Public School was located at 100 Garden Street in the city of Whitby. The school’s history began in 1875 under the name of The Model School, a training school for teachers. The school eventually became Dundas Street Public School. In 1967 a fire led to the demolition of part of Dundas Public School. The west wing was rebuilt while older additions remained intact. In 1974 the school reopened under the name of Florence M. Heard, a former teacher who began her career at the school back in 1924. In 1942 she was promoted to the role of principal. F.M. Heard was a French immersion school that provided programming for students from kindergarten to Grade 6. The school closed in June of 2011 after the Durham District School Board decided that the cost of repairs to the aging school would be too expensive. A new school named Julie Payette Public School was built to replace F.M. Heard. On April 7, 2017 the Durham District School Board put out a tender for demolition of the former school. The demolition tender was awarded to Schouten Excavating Inc.
