As the doors get set to lock for good at Quinte Secondary School, its principal had one more duty, to present an $8,000 cheque to the Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation.

Liane Woodley called it a fitting way to put a “positive spin on something that’s been somewhat negative”.

She tells Quinte News, the money was raised during the school’s recent ‘Weekend To Remember’ school closing festivities.
