Announcement: Naming of the new Willoughby area secondary school
Board Chair Rob McFarlane announced that the new secondary school being built in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood will be named R.E. Mountain Secondary School when complete. The current R.E. Mountain Secondary School, adjacent to the new construction, will be renamed when it is converted to a middle school. Board Chair Robert McFarlane expressed his thanks to all those that provided suggestions and said, “that name [R.E. Mountain Secondary] was selected out of 76 submissions based on feedback and overwhelming community support, to maintain the connections built over many years that R.E. Mountain has been in existence”. The announcement was made in the presence of the REMSS Chamber Choir and was met with applause and cheers from the students, staff and public present.
