This is a reply to the possibility of Kelly Road secondary school being renamed.
Kelly Road had been around for over 50 years and it has been an amazing addition to the Hart community. From the Kelly Road craft fair to the Kelly Road burger bash, Kelly Road has been a staple in many people's lives. I've asked many people their opinion on the topic of a name change for Kelly Road and they all say the same thing - "what, are you crazy?"
Even a 12-year-old boy did not want the name to change because "my dad went to Kelly Road and I want to go to the same school that my dad did!"
Kelly Road is being rebuilt but it will still be the same school, the same friendly teachers and the same great students. Kelly Road secondary school does not need a new name, we don't want a new name and we especially don't want it to be a random name some elementary school student picks.
When schools hear they have to play against Kelly Road in basketball or volleyball, it strikes fear in their hearts. A name change would ruin the kelly road reputation. What about the iconic roadrunner? Many of Kelly Road's teams have gotten new jerseys and they cost a lot of money. We would not want to rename the school and need all new equipment. As a student from Kelly Road, I can assure you that we do not want a name change.
