Coronation School Building Project
It brings me great pleasure to inform you all that only a few short weeks ago, a small group of people began meeting to discuss and plan the new Coronation School Building Project.  The group is a dynamic mix of people including architects, school board trustees and superintendents, Principal Lougheed and myself as your elected parent representative.

We are in the beginning stages only, and there is a lot still to cover. At the moment the site plan is currently under review at the city, and we are discussing possible layouts in and around the building.

I expect to be able to share more details, including the anticipated completion date when the first steps of planning and approvals by the City are completed.

As your parent representative, I'm very interested in hearing what you have to say! If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please feel free to let me know!  You can contact me at tsmith.nokia@gmail.com.

École Fairview School Council Co-Chair
