Canadian high school named after Prince Andrew to change name

Read Time:1 Minute, 33 Second


“Due to the negative reports about Prince Andrew, we are changing the name to go in a different direction,” school principal Craig Campbell told CNN in an email. “We want to build our identity as a positive, supportive school community and have a name to match.”

Local residents will have the opportunity to submit name proposals to a six-member name change committee made up of students, staff, and community members. The top three will then be referred to the Halifax Regional Education Centre, which will receive final approval.

Prince Andrew still has options in his civil sexual abuse case. But none of them look good.
The school’s decision comes after a New York judge ruled earlier this month that a civil lawsuit against Prince Andrew could go ahead.
The 61-year-old royal is being sued by Virginia Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with the prince at the age of 17. Prince Andrew has vehemently denied the claims.

The allegations against the prince have tarnished his public standing and prompted other members of the royal family to distance themselves from the Duke of York.

Recently, Prince Andrew was stripped of his honorary military titles and charities. Prince Andrew will also no longer use the “His Royal Highness” style in any official capacity, a royal source confirmed to CNN’s Max Foster.

In recent years, the Canadian school has joined a long list of institutions that have decided to drop ties to the controversial institution of the same name.

Across the United States, school boards and districts are choosing to find new names for schools named after Confederate leaders or other public figures, such as actor Bill Cosby, who saw his name removed from buildings, workshops and professorships , as the criminal trial he unfolded.
