Making History

We’ve dusted off our photo albums, rifled through old boxes and contacted Cap alumni to create a collection of stories, photographs and videos that showcase our history and foreshadow our future.

Throughout our anniversary, we will share more artifacts, anecdotes and fun facts, so stay tuned.

Please take a few moments to share your favourite memory or photograph with us.
