Copy of my email to school board:
My subject line is “An unusual SCITS supporter”.
Why? Because I’m not like the many supporters who loved the school. You may brush their opinions off as nostalgia for the good old days. I didn’t have good old days at SCITS. In fact, I often say the year I spent there was like the movie Carrie – without the benefit of telekinetic powers.
However, even I realize the logic of keeping SCITS open. There have been many services taken from the original city core. The easternmost end of Sarnia does not need more services/traffic. It is neither logical nor cost efficient to close to an existing school (which is beautiful and has a pool and auditorium), only to spend money to upgrade another school which will become an overcrowded eyesore. Schools do not need to be filled to capacity to be viable.
Most of my family is still in Sarnia. I now live in Edmonton and have the benefit of distance and perspective when looking at this issue. I see Sarnia making one bad decision after another. Closing SCITS will move Sarnia one step closer to becoming a ghost town. Please add my name to the list of people who do not agree to the closure of SCITS.
