Community Fights To Save School

A new committee has been struck to try and save Kersley Elementary School.

Shannon Wilwand is a spokesperson for the Friends of Kersley Elementary Committee.

She says they feel that they are not being heard by the Trustees on the School District’s Board of Education.

Wilwand says the community feels that they’ve been told that their school is going to be closed without any consultation.

She says in her opinion the Board has already made it’s decision and now they’re just going through the motions and getting the paperwork in place.

Wilwand says they met with Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes for four hours last week and she promised to take her notes to Cabinet.

Wilwand says the people at the meeting indicated that they would be willing to pay more to keep the school open.

She also says that they have 62 kids this year and that that number will grow to 67 by next year.

Wilwand says they believe that they will be full by the next five years adding that on the other side of things no one will want to move to a small community that doesn’t have a school.
