Modern learning facility coming to the Trenton community

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is excited about the facility renewal advancements being made to create outstanding learning environments in our district. This is to provide an update on construction of the new Trenton elementary school. It will bring together students from Breadner Elementary School, College Street Public School and Queen Elizabeth Public School.

“We are very fortunate to have a new, modern learning facility being built in the Trenton community. Our new Trenton elementary school, Kindergarten – Grade 8, will be a state-of-the-art learning environment for students, families, employees and our community partners,” said Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education.

The new Trenton elementary school will be built on the exact location of the existing Queen Elizabeth Public School. In order for that to happen, Queen Elizabeth Public School will close as of June 30, 2015. The school will be demolished during July and August 2015. Construction is scheduled to begin in September 2015. The proposed opening date for the new Trenton elementary school is January 2017.


The following changes will be in place for September 2015. A letter will be going home with students [1] (PDF) at the affected schools on Monday, April 27, 2015.

Between now and mid-June, a formal school closing ceremony will be arranged to honour the past and present of Queen Elizabeth Public School, and celebrate students, families and the community.
