I can only hope what with these sad columns on Fulton Place, Eastwood & others in their final days that students will always remember how great their old schools were. It was nice II see the old schools celebrated & lauded one last time as they stood down from being educational centres IVever. The way the teachers kept every tradition in place was stellar.
We can only hope that students, parents, staff and administrators carry on the excitement of learning and garnering knowledge in their new facility's. Knowledge is power & these retired old gems had lots of it. They gave their all II kids and adults alike. The least that can be done is that we must hope that thew community's that lost their schools will not die out.
Regards & Happy Birthday To My Mother,
