Save the WCI Latin Program!
On April 21, various grade 10 and 11 students at Waterloo Collegiate Institute were called down to the guidance office. They were dismayed to find that the Grade 11/12 Latin class for the 2011-2012 school year was cancelled due to the 'small' number of people signed up (15). The class has run with numbers like this before.
WCI is one of two schools in the Waterloo region to have a Latin Program. Next year, it will be the only school. What the students would love to do is continue to learn this language, and learn more about the fascinating culture and history that has greatly influenced modern society. However, their opportunity to do this has been jeopardized. The WCI Latin students are a passionate group of people that love the course. They want to continue their education in Latin.
We, the undersigned, support the WCI Latin students in their desire to learn, and believe that they should have the opportunity in the following school year to continue studying Latin.
