Accommodation Review Committee recommendation
The recommendation is to close Sir Mackenzie Bowell Public School with renewal, renovations and additions at both Prince Charles School (PC) and Sir John A. Macdonald School (SJAM). PC and SJAM would become Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 schools, retaining students within their respective communities. Additions at both schools would include larger gymnasiums, associated change rooms and conversion of existing gymnasiums to library resource centres and computer labs. Renewal needs would be required at both buildings and would include new fire alarm systems, roofing, lighting, windows and heating system modifications.
