Blackburn Cuts The Ribbon As Wazoson Public School Is Officially Open

From the Barrhaven Independent

Although students have been attending the school since January, Wazoson Public School is now officially open.

The Ottawa Carleton District School Board held a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday.

Holding the scissors was Donna Blackburn, the local trustee who fought to get the school built in Half Moon Bay.

“I am so grateful to the staff and students of Wazoson for making the official opening such a memorable and exciting event,” Blackburn said. “I am also thankful to our Director of Education, Dr. Pino Buffone, OCDSB Chair Lynn Scott, and Councillor David Hill for joining us.”

When the doors opened in January, Wazoson was a building welcoming students for the first time. On Thursday, it was clear that Wazoson has become its own community, with students beaming with pride over their new school.

“We were all impressed with the school choir and the student ambassadors who provided tours to guests,” Blackburn said. “The parents in attendance were beaming with pride.”
