At the end of this year, Sydenham Community School will be merged with Bayview Public School and relocated to the former OSCVI building. My husband and I are supporting an effort to have our new school in Owen Sound named after Tom Thomson. We feel it’s a great name given Tom's local heritage and also a great story for the community, especially in the midst of the negatives surrounding school closures and ARC reviews.
Here’s our pitch:
Owen Sound’s new school should be named in honour of Tom Thomson.
This seems obvious, and it should be.
