This is the only high school in a close knit community of some 18 thousand people and has a history dating back to 1929. Prior to its construction on the same site, a grammer school was constructed on land purchased by the taxpayers for $1,856.77. This is a community built school and not just the propert of DSBN to do with as it wishes in the name of cost savings.
Thorold High is an essential part of province recognized the desire of

Thorold and the local economy and it's time DSBN and the Thorold and its residents to keep this vital high school open.

the board announced Januar 19,2012.

i am sure some of the students now being bussed at great cost from across the Niagara Region to the new Academy School in Weiland could fiIl the gap quite adequately. It was estimated at $433,000 for the first 150 students in January 201 1. The boundaries could also be adjusted to reflect and assist Thorold's only high schooL.
I urge the District School Board of

Niagara and its elected trstees to ensure Thorold Secondary

School remains open.
