Name city's new school

You could help name Kelowna's newest school.

The Central Okanagan School District is seeking suggestions from the community to name a new middle school in Kelowna's Upper Mission area.

Currently known as Okanagan Mission Middle School, the facility will serve Grade 6-8 students, with construction beginning this fall.

"It's important that we ask the community to help name this school," says school board chair Moyra Baxter. "The name will reflect the area and its residents, which will increase the community's sense of ownership and identification with the school."

"Having a permanent name in place during construction helps us plan with purpose and supports the development of a vision to meet the needs of every learner who will benefit from the new school," says school Supt. Kevin Kaardal.
