Sedbergh School

Sedbergh School, a unique English private co-educational boarding school, was situated on a beautiful 650 acre campus north of Montebello, Québec, Canada.

The school closed in June 2010 and this site now serves the Old Sedberghian Association with information for and regarding alumni and alumni events.

Vincent Lavoie - 1919-2022

A Life Well Lived

Many Old Sedberghians and staff members have written very moving comments about Vincent since word went out that he had died.. All of us who knew him recognize that he was a very special human being and that we are all the better people for the time he spent with us.

Those who knew him best, Tom Wood and Ann, Boyd Whittall, Tom Burpee, and Peter Kirby have reminded me of so many of the stories of Vincent's life and his relationship with Sedbergh and I include in this essay some of those stories. I too have looked back and will share with you moments that I have not forgotten.

Hugh Wallis - March 27, 1929 - January 27, 2022

Hugh Wallis attended Sedbergh from 1942 to 1946. He died peacefully on January 27, 2022 in Ormstown. He was a gentle soul who cherished family, friends, music, and ‘four legged’ horses. Once retired, Hugh owned and operated a 200 arpent, 13 horse equestrian centre, complete with indoor arena outdoor hunter/ jumper school trails, etc. The good grounding at Sedbergh, he maintained, was a great influence on the active life he led.

A memorial will be held at a future date. Donations in his memory can be made to a charity of your choice.
