Stop TDSB from closing 70% of School Pools
I have made this petition so that we can try and persuade the TDSB to change its policy towards the closure of its swimming pools. Swimming is such an important part of a youth\'s development; not only from a safety perspective, but with child obesity rates increasing I cannot understand how they can so easily cut such a critical life skill. Some things in life are worth paying for! Please sign this and pass it on to as many people as you can. The following is a list of the 23 pools closing this summer: Elementary Carleton Village Senior Public School Earl Grey Senior Public School Fern Avenue Junior and Senior Public School Keele Street Junior Public School & City Community Centre Kensington Community School Queen Alexandra Senior Public School Winona McMurrich Junior Public School Secondary Bickford Centre Central Commerce Collegiate Central Technical School (1) Central Technical School (2) Danforth Collegiate & Technical Institute Downsview Secondary School Forest Hill Collegiate Institute George Harvey Collegiate Institute George S. Henry Academy Jarvis Collegiate Institute Monarch Park North Toronto Collegiate Institute Riverdale Collegiate Institute Rosedale Heights Secondary School SATEC @ W.A. Porter Collegiate Institute Ursula Franklin Academy at Western Technical The following is a list of the 16 pools slated to close in June 2009: Elementary Allenby Junior Public School Deer Park Junior and Senior Public School Glenview Senior Public School Secondary AY Jackson Secondary School Bloor Collegiate Institute Harbord Collegiate Institute Humberside Collegiate Institute Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute Malvern Collegiate Institute Northern Secondary School Oakwood Collegiate Institute Parkdale Collegiate Institute RH King Academy Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute Western Technical-Commercial School Collegiate Institute Westview Centennial Secondary School If one of these are your schools or even if one is not please sign the petition,pass it on and help us SAVE OUR POOLS!
