Four elementary schools officially have new names

The Upper Grand District School Board has approved names for new elementary schools in Guelph and Rockwood that are to open this fall.
A new school on Lee Street in Guelph’s east end is to be named William Winegard Public School in honour of Winegard, 89, a former Guelph MP and University of Guelph president.
A new school on Zaduk Place in the south end, which will be a French immersion centre, is to be named Ecole Arbour Vista Public School.
In Rockwood, a new school that will teach students in both French immersion and the regular English track will be named Ecole Harris Mill Public School. This name relates to historic 1867 ruins of the Harris Woolen Mill at Rockwood Conservation Area.
At its monthly meeting Tuesday, the board also ratified a committee decision to keep Ecole King George Public School as the name for the rebuilt King George school.
The rebuilt school has been used as a holding school since opening its doors in 2012, but this September it will become a JK-8 French immersion centre.
