Farewell to NWSS Planning Committee – looking for volunteers!
New Westminster Secondary School is scheduled to close in June 2020. The current historic building, formerly known as Vincent Massey Junior and Lester Pearson High School, has a long and well established history in our community and has faithfully served all the high school students in New Westminster for more than 70 years. A new high school is being built on the premises and will welcome its first class of students in September 2020. NWSS would like to celebrate the important history of this school and the many students, staff and teachers who have walked its halls.
At this time, we are inviting interested volunteers to join in planning a Farewell Celebration for the current high school. This celebration will honour the current building and will provide an opportunity for all to say farewell to an important chapter in New Westminster history. A planning committee of community members, residents, students past and present, parents, and staff of any year will meet several times over the next couple of months to plan the event. We are looking for members to provide input and create working subgroups that will help carryout the necessary activities to plan and host this exciting community event.
Interested applicants are requested to provide an online application by FEBRUARY 14, 2020. Selected members will be contacted by email the following week. We are looking for a mixture of individuals and regret that not all applicants can be involved on the planning committee; however, there will be ample opportunity for all interested applicants to participate in the working subgroups that will be formed in early spring.
