Public board secondary students looking forward to resumption of extra curricular activities
By Fred Sherwin

Area public board secondary school students are looking forward to the resumption of extra curricular activities after the OCDSB reached a tentative labour agreement with its high school teachers on Wednesday.

Most of the teachers had suspended their services for sports, music, drama and other after school activitites as part of a province wide strike action although their were some exceptions. Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School fielded a senior boys football team and teachers at Colonel By Secondary School ignored the directive altogether.

Students at Cairine Wilson were especially impacted by the strike as participation was cancelled in a number of sports including girls basketball, boys volleyball and cross county running.

If the tentatve deal is ratified by the province and the board, teachers could resume their after school activities next week. This may or may not save the boys basketball season for public board high schools, but it will mean that high school sports will resume as usual in the new year, which is good news for area high school athletes.
