As the referee blew his whistle to start the SD&G senior girls soccer championship match at GDHS this afternoon, athletes from both teams – the Gaels and the Char-Lan Crusaders – came to the midfield stripe and sat down as one, aiming to draw further attention to UCDSB's threat to close both of the English public high schools in Glengarry county.

The girls from both schools were silent for a time, then chanting in unison "save our schools."

The action today was part of a larger movement in North and South Glengarry to stop the school board from abandoning our communities.
