SUCCESSFUL singer-songwriter Bridget Pross is among the hundreds of people who have taken to Facebook to show their support for Glenora District High School in the face of its proposed downgrading. Pross, of Melbourne, writes that she attended the school from 1997-2000.
“Growing up in the Derwent Valley and attending Glenora High was one of the most amazing, fulfilling and precious times of my life. Having that much countryside to breathe and freedom to dream big, I am forever grateful for having that opportunity under my belt,” Pross wrote on the Save Glenora Action Group’s Facebook page.
“I now live in Melbourne and think to myself all the time…WOW Glenora High was really something special, something that needs to be saved and cherished forever.”
The Save Glenora Action Group now has 351 members. The group has organised a protest outside the school at noon tomorrow (Tuesday), followed by a public meeting in the school’s dining room at 1.30pm.
