The provincial government is renovating Connaught Street
School to provide enhanced facilities to students.
Currently, the school does not have a cafeteria and uses a multipurpose
area as a gymnasium. As part of the project, an addition to the school will be
constructed to house a gymnasium, changing room and washroom facilities. In
addition, the school will be renovated to create a cafeteria and kitchen.
“Anglophone West School District is pleased this project
that was prioritized by the district education council is becoming a reality,”
said Superintendent David McTimoney. “We welcome this investment from the
provincial government to renovate Connaught Street School to include a
gymnasium and a cafeteria.”
The provincial government is investing $400,000 from its
2017-2018 capital budget to begin planning and design for the project. The total cost of the project is estimated at $4 million.
Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser visited the school to make the announcement.
