Our School
History

Our school is named in memory of Ronald Lenn Graham (1936-1998). 
 
Ron, as he was known by family and friends, began his teaching career at Lake Wilcox Public School in 1955. After 5 years of teaching, Ron was hired as principal of Keswick Public School. Two years later, he transferred to Jersey Public School where he served as principal for 22 years. During his tenure at Jersey, Ron witnessed his school double in student population. This necessitated a building program in which he was deeply involved. He also helped in the years of transition between the local school board and the centralized board of education. During his years at Jersey, Ron was responsible for numerous innovative educational programs developed within the school. He served his final two years with the York Region Board as principal of Meadowbrook Public School.
 
rlgraham logo large jpeg.jpegThe "Spinnaker" school logo is symbolic of Ron's love of sailing. The three sails represent Respecting, Learning and Growing as well as three divisions: Primary, Junior, Intermediate, and three components of the school: the student body, the staff, and the parents and community. The colours of blue and green represent the water and the earth, two important icons in Ron's life, as well as the colours of the Georgina logo. R.L. Graham Public School is a living legacy to a man who was deeply committed to students and staff.
