On Friday our MPP (and education minister) Kathleen Wynne sent a note home with all the kids at Thorncliffe school announcing that the school would be receiving 12 million dollars!
The letter reads: "The Toronto District School Board will receive 12 million to address accommodation issues at Thorncliffe Park Public School. This money will help get students out of portables and into a permanent building"
Exciting stuff. Having 20 portables in the field this year was not ideal. Still, I'm wondering what space there is left on the property and what other cool stuff 12 mil can buy! That's a serious chunk of change considering Thorncliffes community center (Jenner Jean-Marie) is being completely renovated and doubled in size for 4 million. Hopefully Kathleen has more details soon!
