YES to Argyle School Full Replacement

The Argyle School Replacement Project needs your help now!
The North Vancouver School District has been asking the Ministry of Education to replace Lynn Valley’s Argyle Secondary School since 2005.
We now have an opportunity to fund the FULL replacement of Argyle, dependent on the sale of a small parcel of unused School Board owned land located above and behind Braemar Elementary School. To have a school that offers opportunities like those at Windsor, Carson Graham and Sutherland, we need the proceeds from the sale of the surplus land at Braemar.
All of our highschools in North Vancouver should offer the kinds of amenities that allow our students to thrive. Basic is not good enough – we need multi-purpose space, enhanced fitness facilities that will serve the students and the broader community, increased capacity to address student growth, and opportunities for use of technology to encourage 21st Century learning for our students.
Sign our petition to let North Vancouver District Council know that you support the sale, rezoning, and responsible development of the surplus land for the benefit of all NVSD students.
Some Braemar residents opposed an initial development proposal on environmental, traffic and future use grounds. The developer has addressed these concerns in a new proposal greatly reduced in scope with benefits to the neighbourhood including removal of invasive species, extensive landscaping and proposed traffic and safety improvements.
Sign our petition and tell North Vancouver District Council you support the rezoning of the surplus land and the necessary sharing of School Board assets to fund priorities throughout the whole district. Help us create legacies for our kids, and theirs.
It’s time to bring Lynn Valley’s voice to the table. Our kids deserve a safe and progressive educational facility and our community deserves the advanced arts and sports amenities that the full replacement of Argyle can deliver. Ten years is too long to wait!
