The old Oak Bay High School buildings will come down now that the new school building is constructed and will be finished for the 2015-16 school year. The new building will be new, certainly brighter and bigger and up-to-date certainly nicer for students and staff alike. What will be lost will be the collective memories of the old buildings added to each year by by the new crop of students and newly hired staff who moved through those dark corridors, played in the ancient and dim gymnasiums and acted in or sat through productions in the theatre. A new narrative will emerge from the new school but the old one will fade away.
