Fricker Firebirds’ memorabilia left to rot amongst the ruins?

Fricker Public School is coming down. Recently, the gym was opened as the walls were removed and what was revealed surprised more than a few passersby.

From the street one could see a wall full of banners and flags commemorating the athletic history and achievements of the school’s team, the Firebirds. Seeing this wall of school pride exposed to the elements created some unease within the neighbourhood.

One concerned parent mentioned seeing the flags amongst the ruins was “a shame,” adding “my friends, kids, and community earned those banners,” and now “they are trash.”

The parent highlighted the entire situation was “disappointing for sure.”

The Near North District School Board explained that the board “acknowledges that banners remained on the walls at W.J. Fricker Public School,” however, those banners were gathered by the work crew, Venasse Building Group Inc., to bring to the board.

The board mentioned the banners are safe “and they will be put into storage.”
