Our Lady of Victories
It was reported last week that Our Lady of Victories Catholic School
on Ege Avenue, Jersey City will close on June 2009, making this school year its last.
Currently, the school has 176 students enrolled. Way below the required 225 by the Archdiocese of Newark to be considered “healthy”.
Many parents have expressed disappointment because of the short notice. The Archdiocese of Newark seems to be notorious for this, as they also did the same thing to the defunct St. Aedan School in McGinley Square area a few years ago. Expect fundraisers in the next couple of weeks to keep the school open.
Why am I posting this? Because a big number of students at OLV are Filipinos.
