This local school is proposed for closure, as part of the OCDSB Western Area Review.
The students, parents and community have serious concerns, because JH Putman is a thriving school with near capacity enrolment, and with award winning teachers and programs.
On Sunday, January 22, 2017, a public rally will be held, at 2pm, on the sidewalk, in front of the school, at 2051 Bel Air Drive.
The purpose of the rally is to demonstrate support and gather momentum in preparation for the next Committee of the Whole meeting at Ottawa School Board. All community members, students, teachers, and alumni are invited to this rally. We hope to show the board and trustees that we want and need this school to stay open.
The media and board trustees have been invited to attend.
Questions regarding the rally, or the community’s attempts to save it, can be directed to
