Orchard Park Secondary School students ‘say no’ to education cuts

Community Apr 04, 2019 by Laura Lennie Stoney Creek News

Orchard Park Secondary School students are making it known that they oppose Premier Doug Ford’s education cuts.

They were among about 100,000 high school students participating in the “Students Say No” protest on April 4 across the province that saw youth stand up and walk out against program cuts, larger class sizes, online e-learning course requirements, cellphone bans and new math and sex-education curriculums.

Orchard Park Grade 12 student and event co-organizer Katelyn Hua said the changes are something “we won’t stand for.”

“We’re trying to get Doug Ford to recognize that this is not what we want in the school,” she said, while students chanted “F--- Ford” in the background. “There’s so many other schools that are doing something similar to this, and it’s just our way of showing that we have a voice, that we want things to change in our schools and that we care about our education.”
