THE LOCAL LENS:

This photo from Springwater is by local photographer Barry Acheson  who comments: “This image was taken this January just after sunrise. Springwater Pond was frozen. Being able to walk on the ice made it possible to get to areas that are difficult to access any other time of the year. The remnants of an old tree provides an interesting foreground subject” (CLICK)

ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

PARC MEETING AT PARKSIDE

(Last night a general PARC meeting was held by the TVDSB at Parkside Collegiate as part of the current schools review. Chris Cox, chairperson of the Springfield Public School EPAR committee, provided this reaction) – “Last night’s meeting was very informative and very hard hitting towards the Thames Valley Planning Department. The majority of the schools involved in this Pupil Accommodation Review have the same opinion and concerns – first and foremost that this is just a numbers game for the Board. As one school put it, the kids are being used just like buttons from when we were kids and shuffled around to make the best looking pile and to give the best outcome without any concern for them at all.” Upcoming? – “Springfield will be working on recommendations to make Springfield “better” in the eyes of the Board and showing what a community really is and how the school affects that community and vice versa.”
