Board Meeting Update #121, August 13, 2015

This update provides a summary of the special public meeting of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board held Thursday, August 13, 2015 at the Education Centre. It is an unofficial summary of the meeting; official minutes will be approved at the next regular meeting in September 2015.


Tender for construction of the new Trenton elementary school

Board members approved a tender in the amount of $10.3 million to Garritano Bros. Ltd. for construction of the new Trenton elementary school.

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

This is the fourth new school being built in HPEDSB. Trenton will have a new, state-of-the-art learning facility for students, families and the community. Connecting with families and the community has been an important part of our process and we are looking forward to that continuing


The new school will be designed similar to others that have been built in our district in the past two years:

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 closed as of June 30, 2015. Demolition of the school is underway and will be completed in early September. Construction is scheduled to begin as soon as the demolition is complete.

Planning for this project began in the spring of 2014 following an accommodation review for some Trenton schools. The proposed opening date is January 2017.


The following are planned for September 2015:
