Holy Cross Junior High

St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers says letting the appointed school board to close a small school in her district flies in the face of every principle of equal opportunity. Holy Cross Junior High School is one of five facing closure at a School Board meeting this Saturday.

St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers persisted today in her efforts to get the Minister of Education to postpone decisions on school closures until there is an elected English School Board for the province. The current board was appointed by the previous government when it merged the four existing school boards into one in 2013; there have been no elections for almost seven years..

Today in the House of Assembly, St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers revisited questions which the Minister of Education would not answer when she asked them last week. Since 2011, four schools in St. John’s Centre have been closed, and Holy Cross Junior High on Rickett’s Road faces the same fate.
