Myrtle Philip parents urged to take action.


Parents concerned about their children’s education should write to their local MLA and voice their concerns said members of Myrtle Philip’s Parent Advisory Council at meeting this week.

The PAC passed a motion to get a form letter drawn up, which parents can sign and send to MLA Ted Nebbeling or a minister of their choice.

The idea arose after school trustee Don Brett told the meeting that few parents were writing to the government to tell them how worried they are about budget shortfalls in the education system.

Of particular concern to most was the government’s decision to back a pay rise for teachers but refuse to fund it.

Principal Ron Albertin also told parents that the new elementary school at Spring Creek was still on schedule and will open in Sept 2004.

He also praised the hard work of parents, students and teachers in achieving excellent report cars.

Below is a list of the honour roll students this semester:
