Two renovated schools to open by end of September

Renewing schools is one of the priorities of Hastings and Prince District School Board. Renovations are made in order to provide modern, safe facilities for students and staff.

Two schools which underwent renovations this summer will open on Tuesday, September 27, 2011. Finishing touches are being put on Sir John A. Macdonald School and York River Public School. As of that date, all students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 will be located at the renovated and expanded schools.

“We’re very excited about bringing all students and staff together at the newly-renovated and expanded schools,” remarked Rob McGall, Director of Education. “Both are first-class facilities with extensive renovations and upgrades to support student learning.”

In order to accommodate the moves, the following applies all students of Sir John A. Macdonald School, 22 Harder Drive, Belleville, and York River Public School, 132 Newkirk Boulevard, Bancroft.
