many "Save Our School" meetings with concerned parents, members
of the community, and dedicated students, Walkerville was
kept from being closed. The Walkerville Student council distributed
flyers throughout the community, had a large rally in the
Walkerville auditorium, and advertised through the media.
The main focus was to make the community aware of the issues
concerning the closure and to gain support for our "fight".
student council attended a meeting where, with the support
of many Walkerville students, the council presented their
petition to the Board of Education Trustees. At a Board of
Education meeting in December 1998, the topic was discussed
and voted on. Walkerville would not be closed.
over three months later, cheery faces are back on both the
teachers and students of Walkerville. Everyone is thankful
to the committee which put so much time and effort into the
long planning meetings and presentations to the Board of Education.
was great to see committee members, teachers, students and
community members pull together and work to help save Walkerville.
The future of the school remains uncertain however and we
won't know until later this year of the government's intentions.
If the news is not good, the students will rally again to
save the school.
then, Walkerville is planning its annual musical, which the
Windsor Centre for the Creative Arts puts on. The student
council is also very busy planning student events such as
the Semi-Formal and activity weeks.
