This elementary school for over 500 pupils is located within a residential neighbourhood on the site of a former smaller school. Its design is a slightly modified version of a similar school constructed one year earlier in Parry Sound. This economy of means allowed the school to be completed very economically and in considerably less-than normal time. It was built on-time and on-budget and has delighted children, families and staff in its first months of operation.
Built primarily of robust load-bearing masonry and precast concrete, the building provides feature spaces with glued-laminated timber construction in the two storey lobby, library, major circulation staircase and gymnasium.
