Parents in communities in the south of Calgary are active supporters of the Traditional Learning Centre (TLC) programme within the Calgary Board of Education. At the moment, there are no elementary or junior high schools in the area that offer the TLC programme, so children are currently packed onto school buses for a round trip that lasts two hours or more.
A new elementary school is being built in the community of Evergreen, which is within walking distance for a lot of the communities currently bussing kids to the designated TLC school. We believe that it makes much more sense, socially, environmentally, and financially, to allow children to attend a TLC school within their community. We believe that a good school is at the heart of a strong community, and we would like the Calgary Board of Education to designate the new Evergreen Elementary and Bridlewood Junior High Schools as TLC schools.
The majority of students in the TLC program at Le Roi Daniels and Fairview Schools come from the southern communities of Calgary, by redesignating the Evergreen and Bridlewood schools as TLC schools, we allow our children to attend the school programme of their choice without compelling them to spend 10 hours a week on a bus.
Due to a recent incident at the beginning of May I am undertaking the task of raising this Petition against El Chapparal Golf.
In May a friend of mine had her vehicle parked all day in Las Adelfas. When she returned to her vehicle she found that her window had been smashed with a golf ball. Also, there have been in the past other incidences were golf balls have narrowly missed residential properties and also dented other cars that are parked in Las Adelfas.
