New Modular Classroom Announced for Good Shepherd School

  Posted: February 3, 2017

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce that Good Shepherd School will receive a new modular classroom to be in place for the 2017/18 school year.  HFCRD received the news in a letter from the Alberta Government on Monday January 16th.  According to the letter, the request was approved based on Good Shepherd School’s need for student accommodation.

“We are very thankful to the Government of Alberta for providing this new modular classroom for Good Shepherd School,” said HFCRD Board Chair Kelly Whalen.  “The new classroom will allow for more washrooms to be available to students, and will give them increased privacy and accessibility.  This announcement is great news for Good Shepherd School!”

The new modular classroom will be placed at the most northern side of the school attached to the two existing modular classrooms.  The new modular will be used as a regular classroom, and one of the existing Kindergarten classrooms will be converted to provide four additional washroom stalls, including a barrier-free washroom.  Currently, two bathrooms with a total of six stalls serve eight classrooms in the Kindergarten to grade three wing of Good Shepherd School.  The additional washrooms will give students better access to washrooms, and will improve access for students of all abilities and genders.

The ministry will fund 100% of the reasonable costs to deliver and set up the classroom, and 90% of the cost for installation.  HFCRD is currently in the process of submitting all necessary information to the Government of Alberta to ensure the modular classroom will be in place for the 2017/18 school year.
