2009-03-26 The NDP candidate in Lunenburg is asking the South Shore Regional School Board for a stay of execution for the Riverport School.  Pam Birdsall says Riverport, East LaHave and Rose Bay are all thriving communities which are starting to attract new families,and the Board should  stay its decision for a year to let the communities work together to figure out how they can help to keep the school open.   Birdsall points to the Greenfield School in Queens, where businesses, residents, and the Board have worked together on a new model for a small community school and says the Riverport area can accomplish the same. The School Board is expected to announce its decision regarding a number of school closures at its monthly board meeting tonight .
