HISTORY

Douglas J. Thom was born and educated in Ontario . He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto and studied law at Osgoode Hall. He was admitted to the Bar in 1903 and was appointed King's Counsel in 1917.

Mr. Thom was very active in the community. He served on the Regina Collegiate Board from 1913 to 1926 and was a member of the Board of Governors of Regina College from 1910 to 1934. He was president of the Civic Relief Fund and the first president of the Regina Community Chest.

Mr. Thom was author of The Canadian Torrens System, an excellent treatise which has since become a standard text in law libraries across Canada .

It was indeed fitting that in 1963 when this school opened it was named after Mr. D. J. Thom.

HAWRYLAK AUDITORIUM

The auditorium is a special place in our school in which students are expected to conduct themselves with dignity. Courtesy for the performers and consideration for the other members of the audience are key words governing expected conduct.

The Hawrylak auditorium is named after Mr. Bill Hawrylak, a longtime Principal at Thom Collegiate and former member of the Regina Public School Board.
