Wednesday, April 18th there is a community meeting hosted by parents at Connaught school, located on Elphinstone and 13th avenue. Parents want to discuss and hear how the community feels about building a new school or renovating the existing building.
I attended the P3 Architects’ presentation at the April 4th consultation (see this by Trish Elliott) meeting and during that initial part, there was no mention of renovation. The presentation focused on new types of learning environments and school structures rather than present options for reuse/renewal. It would seem people must act quickly to register a desire for retention of the original building because removing it, at least from the consultation, felt like an inevitability.
The meeting starts at 7pm and will be held in the nutrition room which can be accessed from the Wise Owl entrance on the northwest side of the building.
