    • Suddaby Public School in Kitchener, Ontario is named for him.

      _______________

      In 1877 the Central School was selected by the Minister of Education, on the recommendation of the County Inspector, for one of the Model Schools for the training of third class teachers. Mr. Young resigned the principalship at midsummer and Mr. J. Suddaby received the appointment, thus becoming the first principal of the Model School....

      BERLIN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

      The last session of the Model School was held in the Fall of 1907, with a record attendance of students. Principal J. Suddaby died suddenly on May 29, 1910. Mr. Suddaby was born near Grenville, Prescott County, in 1842, and after completing his Normal School training taught in the County of Waterloo until 1877 when the new Model School was opened. Mr. Suddaby became the first principal and in the years that followed he had not a little to do with the training and preparation of many of the teachers of 'the County. In his time Berlin schools increased in number from one to four and the site for the fifth was acquired in 1909.

      Mr. Suddaby was a man of sterling worth, whom to know was to love; a born teacher, a man of splendid ability and attainment, a deep student, a friend of teachers and pupils.

      His death removed a brilliant figure from the teaching profession, not alone of this county but of the entire province, where he was widely known and esteemed an authority on educational affairs. In memory of Mr. Suddaby the Berlin Public School Board changed the name of the Central School to Suddaby School.

      On the re-opening of the Public schools in September, 1910, J. D. Weir was in charge of King Edward School, R. Reid having retired to become inspector for the Economical Fire Insurance Company. Mr. Reid was chairman of the School Board in 1911 and 1912, then was appointed agent-general for Ontario in London, England.

      J. B. Pomeroy took charge of Margaret Avenue School in succession to J. F. Carmichael, who became principal of Suddaby School. At the re-opening of school in January, 1912, J. F. Carmichael became principal of Victoria School; A. Foster, of Suddaby School, and P. Fischer, of Courtland Avenue School.
