The new replacement schools for both Bellmoore Public Elementary and Winona Public Elementary Schools will carry their current names with them and the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board finally completed the process for naming the new schools last night (Mon Mar 21/2011) at their School Board Meeting.
Councillor Johnson attending the the meeting as a show of support for the great many residents who wished to see the replacement schools maintain the heritage names. Over the past few weeks, many residents have contacted Councillor Johnson’s Office asking for her support and wanting her to be involved as much as possible.
Brenda was happy with the School Boards unanimous decision to keep the names “It’s good news for the Community” and she was proud that many residents signed petitions, wrote letters and emails and took the time to call to voice their opinion. It is good when the Community gets involved!
The new replacement for Bellmoore School is currently under construction in the Village of Binbrook, next to the water tower and the new replacement for Winona Public is also currently under construction on Barton Street at Lewis Road.
