Aysegul Candir[edit]

On December 10, 2004, a gunman shot 47-year-old grade 10 teacher Aysegul Candir in the head multiple times in a Bramalea Secondary School parking lot. Mrs. Candir was pronounced dead in hospital later in the day. Peel Regional Police would later apprehend Candir's 62-year-old husband, Erhun, and charged him with murder. The incident was considered as a domestic dispute.[1]

Yearbook[edit]

  • The 2008-09 school year marked a significant change for Bramalea's yearbook program.
  • A new website BSS Yearbook was launched. The main feature of the website is an online photo gallery for the other 99% of photos that don't make it into the book.
