MONTREAL,  MARCH 19,  2008 –  Student representatives from  Lester B. Pearson High School and École Secondaire Henri Bourassa  in Montreal North continue to work together on different projects.

Last May, after months of  collaboration following incidents which occurred the previous fall, the two schools from the English Montreal School Board and the Commission Scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Île (CSPI)   held a well attended press conference  at which time identical murals produced by both student bodies were displayed. They also unveiled a joint glossy and bilingual  newsletter which was distributed to the combined 3,500 students.

On Wednesday, April 1   (1 p.m.) the Lester B. Pearson High School Student Council will visit École Secondaire Henri Bourassa (6051, boul. Maurice-Duplessis) and present them with large poster boards of the joint newspaper aimed at serving as a  reminder of the declaration of unity made by the two schools last May. The two Student Councils will also discuss joint projects for this year.
