Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board staff have proposed the closure of Prince Philip School and busing of its students to George R. Allan School. The volunteer ARC committee has proposed keeping Prince Philip, George R. Allan, and Dalewood intact. On April 16 the Board of Trustees will vote on their preferred proposal. We need your voice to keep all three schools in our community!
