Name the New School

I don't care what they name it as long as it's not named after some "pioneer Kelowna citizen" who just happened to be an early settler. Not a reason to get a name, in my opinion! :(

I like Canyon Falls - it was one of my three suggestions, the other being Crawford Hills or Crawford Heights or, how about, simply Upper Mission Middle School? :)

School McSchoolyface but, sadly, we've got a bunch of old codger school trustees that never would've allowed it, many of who have kids who have long since graduated from the school system yet they hang on to power with their aging fingernails (*cough* Moyra Baxter *cough* Rolli Cacchioni *cough*)

Cheers,
Doug

Being that it’s in the mission, I’d suggest naming it for firefighters involved in the 2003 fires, if they are going to name it after a person that is.

Oh I wouldn't worry about a name so much - names change all the time:

In another 100 years the school will change names again or be closed (most likely closed).

*shudder* I hope that's tongue-in-cheek because that's literally, the worst idea ever! :(

I can't believe Schooly McSchoolface didn't make the cut. (lol - most likely it did, but they'd never reveal that to the public)

I like the name, for where it is it is fitting. I like names better than making it just OKM, or KSS, etc, as well as not naming it after someone as in 30 years there will be a revolt as some detail comes out that they weren't a saint and therefore evil.

Or just name it what kids call it "UGH DO I HAFTA GO?"

I'm sure you know that OKM and KSS do have actual names...right ?

CF - I'm sure kids are calling it Cystic Fibrosis right now.

Oh yay - another effigy to an architect. How about designing/building something practical, instead of the very best that money can buy? I can just hear it now - new upper Mission school - Richy Rich Elementary; Silver Spoon Middle School; Audi-Beemer Middle School. Truth be told, it should simply be "Too Small Before It Opens" - in keeping with every other school project built in the district.

Looking at the rendering, the first thing that jumps out at me is, why are the buses having to travel through the entire parking area - along with every other mini-van-driving-soccer-mom dropping off/picking up their bubble-wrapped prince/princess? Why not have a dedicated drop off/pick up area out of the parking area to improve traffic flow?


Hey, wait a minute, I’m offended, what happened to Mercedes?

Anyways, how about naming it “The AllRace School”? Something generic from a marketing perspective like “The Ideal School”.

I remember a police officer who came to OKM to talk about drinking and driving. In response to his question “who has a car?”, I was the only one to not raise my hand.

You’re right. Given some thought maybe something a little worse too. Cystic Fibrosis Multiple Sclerosis.
