EVENT: Open House & Closing Ceremony for Earl Prentice Public School

February 26, 2018—Earl Prentice Public School will be hosting an Open House & Closing Ceremony to honour the past and present, and celebrate students, families and the community.

DATE: Saturday, March 3, 2018

TIME:  1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

LOCATION: Earl Prentice Public School, 17 William Street, Marmora

The school is consolidating with Marmora Public School on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.


The Ministry of Education announced funding in November 2015 to build an addition and renovations at Marmora Senior Public School. The funding was in response to a capital priority business case submitted to the Ministry of Education in the summer of 2015. The submission was for the construction of an addition to and renovation of the existing Marmora Senior Public School to create a JK to Grade 8 school to accommodate students from Earl Prentice Public School (presently JK to Grade 3) and  Marmora Senior Public School (presently Grade 4 to 8). The addition includes five new classrooms and a new double-size gym. The existing single-size gym was converted to a learning commons/library.

The overall project cost was estimated to be $3.7 million, with Ministry of Education funding of $3.2 million and the additional $500,000 coming from school board building renewal funds.

The new name, Marmora Public School, became effective January 8, 2018.

All are welcome to these community events to visit with current and former staff, students and community partners.
