The new section contains tow large, modernly-appointed classrooms, an agricultural science rooms, a commercial department and an attractive office suite for Principal Herbert Stevens and the school secretary. If the school population continues growing, a similar extension will have to be built on the west end. In fact it is already under consideration. The school enrolment now stands at 340 students, with approximately 70 per cent rural. Next September, secondary students will be attending the Aylmer High school from Belmont and district, which will bring the enrolment up to about 400, it is anticipated. Five school buses are required to transport the district students to and from the school.

Scope and Content
Photographs of the exterior of different homes in a new Aylmer development. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, May 19, 1951, page eleven: “Homes of Individuality and Character Mark Aylmer Development: Many Houses Being Erected in Busy Town.” 1_2078: “First dwelling to be built in the Fick sub-division, off the west extension of Pine street, is that of Mr. and Mrs. George Lindsay, a six-room, dark red brick cottage type house, with entrance and large living-room picture window to the north. Virtually all of the deep lots in this attractive new sub-division have been sold with other new homes projected.” 1_2081: “A group of four new homes on the east side of the Passmore sub-division in the south outskirts of Aylmer. Shown, left to right, are the pretty bungalow type home of Mr. and Mrs. William Flack, white clapboard with green trim and with buff brick used effectively for special front entrance design and for slower well under the large picture window; Mr. and Mrs. Don McPherson’s home; Mr. and Mrs. Gerrard McPherson’s home; and the smart storey and a half home of Mr. and Mrs. Derbishire, with fir shingle siding in natural wood effect. On the west side of Tree Lawn avenue are the homes of A.M. Passmore, the man who developed this residential sub-division, and those of Jack Hale and Frank Reynaert, the former under construction and the latter soon to get under way. Two or three other new homes are started or projected for this popular sub-division.” 1_2082: “A contrast in new house designs is provided on the north side of Clarence street in the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Jules Reynaert, to the left, and Mr. and Mrs. D.M. Halpenny, to the right. While the Reynaert home follows the more conservative design of single storey cottage type dwelling, with individualistic touches, the Halpenny home is decidedly modern, with flat roof, sloping to the north, and large living-room picture window to the south. The contrast in these two juxtaposed house designs is not at all displeasing.” 1_2080: “Mr. and Mrs. Donald S. Black are the proud owners of this smartly designed and roomy storey and a half tan brick house with wood trim. Plans for this new home, at Harvey and Dufferin streets, facing south, were supplied by Harold Beckett of Windsor, whose designs are a regular weekly feature of The Times-Journal. There are two bedrooms with bath on the main floor of this house; and two additional bedrooms with bath on the second floor.” 1_2079: “The attractive two storey Colonial type home of Allan Kilmer, deputy reeve of Aylmer, on South street, which was completed last year. Directly behind it are the new homes of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Trull and Mr. and Mrs. Tom McKinley. The front entrance of the Kilmer home is also to the north. Broad clapboard siding, painted white, with green roof and trim, features this room.”
