Input sought for naming school in Clayton Heights

SURREY — The long overdue secondary school in Surrey’s Clayton area is set to be built in 2017 but before students are able to take to the classroom, the building will need a name.

As such, the Surrey Board of Education is asking members of the public to offer up suggestions on potential names, any of which could end up on the school’s facade.

The school in question will be built at 7278 184th St. in north Clayton and is set to open in 2017.

According to school board policy, school names should reflect the history or geography of the neighbourhood or community. Special consideration is given to names that have significant meaning to students and members of the community.

The board also notes that typically the same name or slight variations of the same name are submitted by various people. Because of this, acknowledgments may not be given to those who suggest a name that is later chosen by the board.

Those interested can submit their suggestions by emailing schoolnames@surreyschools.ca or by writing to School Naming, Communication Services, Surrey Schools, 14033 92nd Ave., Surrey, B.C., V3V OB7.

Suggestions should be submitted by 4 p.m. on March 20, 2015.
