Centennial Secondary School is
Planning for the Future
Centennial Secondary School will soon be re-built,
and we want to hear from the Centennial community about Neighbourhood Learning Centres
In approving the replacement school for Centennial, the Ministry of Education has also committed to looking at Centennial for the Neighbourhood Learning Centres (NLC) initiative. The idea is to find unique and innovative ways to design schools with community use in mind. Schools within a NLC site could include services, such as: Child-care programs; Health Clinics; Sports programs; Family Resource centres; and recreational programs, to name a few examples. The intent behind this initiative is for schools and community organizations to partner together to create opportunities where people can access educational and community services under one roof.
To gain a better understanding of community needs, the district will be holding a community consultation with Centennial residents to determine how to best bring together community services and the school community. The date of the community consultation will be Wednesday June 9th, 2010 at 7:00 pm, located at Centennial Secondary School in the courtyard at the school’s main entrance.
