Dear Parents/Guardians,

Last month, I wrote to you providing an update on the progress of the renovations to the Beaufort building. At the time of writing, I anticipated being able to provide you with a further update prior to the start of the school year.

 

I am pleased to tell you we have made great progress throughout the summer. The interior renovations have been completed, the building has been thoroughly cleaned and by the end of next week the installation of technology will be done. The portable classroom is also on the property. The stairs, an accessible ramp as well as skirting have been installed and only electrical hook up remains to be completed.

 

One of the benefits of the fabulous weather this summer is that it allowed the roof work to progress ahead of schedule. It is now expected that this work will be completed within the next week and the exterior fencing will be removed before students return to class on September 9.

 

If you are interested, we have posted some photos on the HRSB website at: http://www.hrsb.ca/about-hrsb/operations-services/capital-projects/new-halifax-south-peninsula-p-6 and on our Twitter account: @HRSB_Official.

 

I hope everyone enjoys these last few weeks of summer. I know the school’s administration will do a great job of ensuring a smooth transition into the new space.

 

Regards,

Elwin LeRoux
Superintendent
