  •  Online at the following SurveyMonkey link, which will be posted to the websites of Sydenham Community School, Bayview Public School and Bluewater District School Board:

  • Community suggestion boxes at these Owen Sound locations: Owen Sound & North Grey Union Public Library, YMCA/Julie McArthur Regional Recreation Centre reception area, Grey Bruce Health Services in Owen Sound, Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre, Sydenham and Bayview main school offices

  • Social media on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag, #nameourschoolos or visit Facebook.

 Each submission should include a suggested school name, along with supporting rationale for that name choice.
