Windsor Public School Board Trustees

Windsor has experienced historic success in swimming. We support the largest participation in the sport and have many pools around our community. As recently as 2006 Windsor and Essex County schools have represented 4 of the top 5 finishes in the OFSAA Championships.

Recent closures and neglect of high school pools have contributed to the falling out the swim programs in Windsor. This year our top 4 schools finished in the top 100.

The Windsor Star has reported that school boards are expecting to close pools as repairs become needed. Rather than allowing success to flourish they are choosing to neglect their own success. So far 4 of the city's 6 school pools have closed, all of which can be easily repaired.

These pools have supported community programs such as Special Olympics, Swimming lessons, Scuba clubs, and life saving programs. It has created a mecca of OFSAA swim championships over 4 decades long, and has taught students valuable water safety in a county surrounded by water.

We, the undersigned, call on our elected Trustees to protect and preserve our school's swimming pools and programs.

We call upon you to keep Kennedy and Riverside's pools open and repair the pools of Herman and Massey immediately.

We also request that you the Trustees create a plan to repair Forster and Walkerville's Pools and a plan to maintain the schools pools in the future.
