The Surrey Schools Coalition (Surrey DPAC, Urban Development Institute, Greater Vancouver Homebuilders Association, Surrey Board of Trade) invites media and families to a fun, free, community event. A rally will take place on Saturday, October 28th at Earl Marriott Secondary School (15751 16 Ave, Surrey) between 12:00 and 2:00pm to engage Surrey families on the issues surrounding the need for more and timely Capital Funding for new schools in Surrey’s high growth areas and to let everyone know how they can help. Government representatives will also be in attendance. The Surrey Schools Coalition is hosting this community event to show the Provincial Government that Surrey families are getting tired of waiting for shovels to hit the ground on much needed new schools!

There will be a short presentation from the Surrey Schools Coalition at 12:15pm. Since it is so close to Halloween we are encouraging families and friends to bring their kids dressed in their best costumes. There will be free food from local food trucks as well as prizes for the best dressed kids. Finally, there will be a special appearance by the Paw Patrol to entertain everyone (but mostly the kids).
