I am not a parent however I feel strongly that our local children should have access to top quality education. If this can be supplied at the Westwold School then that is where they should be. Long time periods spent on bus to get them to other locations should be avoided if possible.


A public meeting was held November 22, 2018 to discuss the proposed closure and consolidation, and to receive petitions and/or presentations from interested parties and members of the community. During the meeting there was an opportunity for people to express their concerns. 

For those unable to attend the meeting or those who attended and would like to clarify or expand on comments made during the meeting may submit them to facilityinput@sd73.bc.ca Comments and proposals regarding the future use of Westwold Elementary will be collected until January 19, 2019. These comments will be publicaly posted on this page. Once the comment period is closed, comments will be collected. Once feedback has been examined, administrators will make a recommendation to the Board regarding the future of Westwold Elementary at the January 28, 2019 regular scheduled Public Board Meeting.
