A joint town and county council meeting was held at St. Andrew Jr. School in order to have more discussions around school closures in the Antigonish area. Council, the school board and it’s school options committee had open conversations regarding the possibility of a school being closed – an issue brought to the forefront after H.M MacDonald was put on the chopping block at an SRSB Working Committee Meeting.
Last night’s meeting featured a motion from council to not close H.M MacDonald, or any other school for the time being. Mayor Laurie Boucher and Warden Russel Boucher were both pleased by the vote:
A Strait Regional School Board Meeting will be held tonight to vote on the Dr. JH Gillis feeder system and if any closures will happen. This meeting happens at 7:00 tonight at the Strait Regional School Board Office.
