She'll miss Thornhill Junior

Dear Sir:

Thank you for the nice article about Thornhill Junior Secondary in the May 2 issue. I was fortunate to attend Thornhill Junior when it was first opened. It was very exciting to move into a new school in January 1975 after the Christmas holidays.

Not only did my brothers and I attend Thornhill Junior so did my nephews.

As principal Jane Arbuckle said, there is a special connection between friends that you have known since age 5 or 6, as many Thornhill Junior students also went to the Thornhill Primary and Elementary schools. I am very saddened by its closure. Thornhill Junior Secondary will remain in my heart as the best high school ever.

Gayle Holtom,

Thornhill, B.C.
