Not Schooly McSchoolface

While it was the runaway top choice as the name for the new middle school in Kelowna's Upper Mission, Schooly McSchoolface didn't make the grade.

The name plays off Boaty McBoatface, the tongue-in-cheek winner of a 2016 British contest asking people to name a polar research vessel.

School District 23 secretary-treasurer Larry Paul says if this were an election, Schooly McSchoolface would have been the hands-down winner.

Paul said three other names are being considered. The selection committee would be happy with any of them.

Those names are: Canyon Falls, Myra Canyon and Ki-Low-Na.

All three will be brought forward to a public open house next Monday, 6 to 8 p.m. at OKM Secondary.

The final design for the school on Frost Road will also be presented.

While design of the building itself is complete, Paul said the public will be able to provide input on items such as exterior finish and layout of the yard.
