History[edit]

The original Oakville Trafalgar High School was founded in 1908 and was located on Reynolds Street. The school was a major Contributor to war efforts during World War I and again in World War II, turning the school field into a field where they grew crops to send overseas. During this time different sports and clubs were formed. The two most popular being Rugby and Hockey and often had a large fan turnout. The largest and most popular change was the allowance of dances, until this time dances were banned in the school. In 1946, the districts of Trafalgar and Oakville merged and the school's name was changed to Oakville Trafalgar High School. In 1992 the school became too small and its location was moved to where it currently stands today on Devon Road.
