Writer has strong school memories
I just read the letter submitted by Gayle Holtom regarding the closure of Thornhill Junior Secondary. I too was one of the first students to have the honour of attending the school.
I can remember the excitement and pride we students felt as we helped pack desks into the school. We each made it our school and took pride in its upkeep.
When I heard of its closing, I was saddened, too. An end to an era for sure. What a shame it will be to see another beautiful building just sitting unused and empty. Today’s society is big on recycling. What a shame we can’t recycle those buildings into which so much money and time has been put.
