Rally for schools

Students, teachers, parents and other concerned citizens are invited to a rally for Surrey education Sunday afternoon at Holland Park.

Cloverdale’s Paul Hillsdon, university student and community activist, is organizing the city-wide rally.

He says Surrey needs eight new schools. More than 8,000 students will learn in a portable this year, and many schools are operating above capacity.

Meanwhile, the population is growing by 800 new residents a month.

The event starts at 1 p.m. at Holland Park (13428 Old Yale Road), near the fountains.
