~ Community sustainability at risk with possible school closure

International Baccalaureate program may not be given chance!

Greater Hardisty is once again battling the potential closure of a neighbourhood school and area residents are being asked to stand up and protect the future of their community.

Before Christmas the Edmonton Catholic School District identified St. Gabriel School for potential closure, just five years after agreeing to save the school from consolidation with the new St. Brendan school in Ottewell.  Laura Mercier said support from parents and the community in general is needed to rally behind the Capilano-area school that has educated several generations in the area either as elementary or junior high students.  “Schools are the backbone of a community,” said Mercier, the mother of two boys, who also serves on the boards of both the school’s advisory council and Capilano Community League. “Communities with schools are vibrant places to live and are a key attraction for new residents looking to relocate into the area.”  She said the proposed closure is just another blow to the area which lost its long-time grocery store in December — TGP.  “Residents need to stand up for services in their area if they want their communities to thrive,” said Mercier.
