As many of you know, the Toronto Catholic District School Board is
reviewing the possibility for high school closures in the East End of
Toronto. This is due to the fact that there is under-subscription in
one school (St. Patrick's) and over-subscription in four schools
(Vanier, Cardinal Newman, Notre Dame and Neil McNeil).
Currently there are three options on the table:
1. Relocate Notre Dame to St. Patrick's property.
2. Relocate Neil McNeil to St. Patrick's property; and either (a) sell
the property, or (b) relocate Notre Dame to Neil property.
3. Provide new programs to St. Patrick's to encourage new enrollment.

committee representatives, current Neil and Dame students, alumni and faculty
all overwhelmingly rejected the inclusion of option 1 and 2. Furthermore, it
was clear that option 3 was the most favourable to the 300+ people in
On February 8 another ARC meeting was held, this time at St.Patrick's. ARC
committee representatives, current Neil, Dame, St.Pats, Newman and Vanier students, alumni and faculty
all were in attendance and still are overwhelmingly rejecting the inclusion of options 1 and 2. Option 3 is still the most favourable and we want to direct our message right to the source.
Mr. Alway, we, the undersigned take a strong and unequivocal stance
that OPTION 1 and 2 must be removed from final consideration.
