Looking to Mainland Schools for Ideas

Members and Trustees of the Sooke School District are looking at new schools in the Greater Vancouver area today to see what is working and what isn’t. It is important to make sure our new schools are built with both student and community-use in mind.

During the two-day trip, the group will:

  • Tour Burnaby Central Secondary School to look at its design features including a conference centre, theatre and two full-sized gyms
  • Attend a seminar about design build features and Neighborhood Learning Centres.
  • Meet with representatives from Abbotsford Collegiate to learn about project planning, construction and community consultation processes.
