Teachers from the Central Okanagan filled the 800-seat Kelowna Community Theatre

Central Okanagan Teachers Meet

Central Okanagan teachers dove into strike action with a mass meeting, nearing the 1000-person mark.

  • Mar. 5, 2012 2:00 p.m.

Teachers from the Central Okanagan School District spent the first hours of the pronvincewide B.C. Teachers’ strike in a meeting at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

The 800-set theatre was filled to capacity with people sitting in the isles, standing along the back and filling the foyer outside.

Headed by Central Okanagan Teachers’ Association president Alice Rees, the meeting offered both an opportunity to vent and ask questions as B.C. teachers move from low-grade job-action to walking off the job.
