High school undergoing renovations

Work is being done on Ashcroft high school to get it ready for elementary school grades.

Students, parents and community members will see that over the summer months, work began to convert Ashcroft Secondary School to a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school for September 2015. The work on the school started this summer to minimize disruption for students and staff during the school year.

The summer work includes the removal of the outdoor running track which was in poor condition. While upgrading of the track was not feasible, it will be replaced with grass so it can still be used by students and community members.

Several rooms have been emptied to allow for the upcoming change to elementary classrooms and early learning spaces. The former outdoor “greenhouse” has also been cleared out to allow for its renovation to an indoor common area for secondary students.

The Board has approved a total budget of $2.4 million for the renovation project and looks forward to providing a warm, welcoming environment for students of all ages.
