Major Renovations Underway At Brampton School

 

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board just announced that they are renovating Holy Name of Mary Catholic Secondary School.

Located at 115 Glenvale Boulevard, the school has 726 students, 17 portables and very limited parking. It also has a 113- pupil Relocatable Classroom Module/ portable that contains the cafeteria, servery, workrooms and washrooms.

On May 16, 2018, the school board received funding from the Ministry of Education for the construction of a 17-classroom addition. The ministry allocated $10.3 million for the construction of the new addition.

The construction is set to start in July 2019 and end in July 2020 with the school opening back up in September 2020.

The board is planning to demolish the Relocatable Classroom Module and 17 portables to construct 17 classrooms (8 on the first floor and 9 on the second). There will also be a new cafeteria with a raised stage area, integrated control room, new kitchen, servery, and storage. The board also proposes a new media arts room with a sound control room and a green wall, new barrier-free washrooms on each floor, a new elevator to the second floor, teacher workrooms on the first and second floor, and a resource room. The board will also expand the parking area, and introduce a kiss and ride lane.

The new capacity of the school is expected to reach 798 pupils.

Due to the project, the school informed that students and staff would be temporarily relocated to a host location for the 2019/2020 school year to allow for the construction to proceed.

Holy Name of Mary’s students will be temporarily hosted at St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Learning Centre located at 3566 South Common Court in Mississauga. The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board has made arrangements to transport the students to St. Kateri for the 2019/2020 school year.

Information regarding final stops will be available through the www.stopr.ca website on August 26.
