“The provincial government is pleased to see the community thriving as we celebrate the official opening of a new expansion at Miscouche Consolidated School,” said Minister McIsaac. “This community continues to grow and prosper and attract new families. We are pleased to invest in technology and space to build a stronger education system for all.”
Miscouche Consolidated School was originally constructed in 1963. It accommodated 200 students; however, in 2010, the student population increased to 270.
The new 10,500 square foot addition at Miscouche Consolidated School includes a new main entrance, four new classrooms, a music/band room, as well as improvements to the science lab and Intermediate Technology Education space.
New office space is also available for student services such as resource and reading recovery, speech language pathology and English as an Additional Language training. Four new classrooms include Smartboards and FM sound reinforcement systems to help students with hearing disabilities.
“I would like to thank the Western School Board and local representatives for working together to move this project forward for the benefit of all students, staff and residents of Miscouche and surrounding areas,” said Minister McIsaac. “As students in the area grow and learn in a safe and healthy environment, they will be better prepared to move on to the next level in education and life.”
Construction on the expansion at Miscouche Consolidated School began in late April, 2011. Students started moving into their new classrooms at the beginning of the school year.
