The old Port Coquitlam secondary school will go out with a bang this spring before it’s demolished.

Graduates of Terry Fox’s alma mater will hold their last dance at the Wellington Street building on May 21, with the Tom Lavin and the Powder Blues providing the tunes.

Organizer Matt Chester said they’ll be photographers to capture the reunions and refreshments available.

The event will run from 6 to 10 p.m. at the school.

The francophone School District 93, which now owns the site, plans to replace École des Pionniers with a $25-million building that meets earthquake standards.

Port Coquitlam senior secondary opened in the 1950s for grades 11 and 12 but was renamed Terry Fox senior secondary in honour Fox, a 1976 graduate.
