Dear Mayor Luciani and City Councilors,
i i i ,
The importance of a community school is immeasurable. At first glance Thorold Secondar School (TSS) may look like bricks and mortar but what cannot be seen is that the school is the hear and soul of the community, the place where our futue is cultivated. TSS is the second oldest secondar school in Niagara, having been established in 1875, and it has deep roots in
Thorold. Generations of families have received their education there and parents and volunteers are strongly connected to this institution.
The sustainabilty of a community is connected to the school environment and schools like Thorold Secondar play an integral and supportive role in helping our commwùty to surive. It
is important that an assessment takes into account the effect on the entire community. Should
TSS close it would have a devastating result on the city as a whole. I am confident that the Board and ARC members wil consider the serious consequences of leaving a growing city without a
In my view closing this school would be shortsighted and I support the efforts of the Thorold
community to keep the doors open.
