History of Walter Duggan Consolidated

Walter Duggan Consolidated, Primary to grade 6, opened its doors in 1989. It replaced the Chelsea and Church Street Schools within the town and it also incorporated the students living in the surrounding rural areas. When the Victoria Street School closed, Walter Duggan became the only remaining Elementary School. Recently, with the closure of Highland Middle School, the former High School, Walter Duggan Consolidated School became the only remaining school in the Town of Westville.

Our school was named in honor of Walter Duggan who was the Mayor of the Town of Westville from 1963 to 1988, he was the Chairperson of the Westville School Board from 1963- 1982 and was the Chairperson of the Pictou District School Board from 1982-1988.
