The brand new Maitland River Elementary School in all of its splendour opens for students on Tuesday, September 3, 2013. Students and Families will get their first look at a special open house tomorrow (Wednesday, August 28, 2013) from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The new school is a modern marvel in its design, in its technology and in its impact on the environment. Maitland River Elementary has been built with a bright and positive learning environment and with energy efficiency a significant objective. I was fortunate last week to meet up with Maitland River Principal Alice McDowell and join her for a tour of the new school. Contractors were still cleaning up and looking after those last minute details but as you will see in this video my tour was amazing.
The opening of Maitland River begins a new chapter on educating our youth in an ultra modern facility. Every classroom has Smart Boards and wireless connectivity is available throughout the building. While this new chapter begins, the book is now closed on Turnberry Central, Wingham Public, East Wawanosh, Brussels and Blyth Public Schools.
A couple of weeks ago, there was a special luncheon for all the contractors and trades people to thank them for making this all possible.
Stay tuned for more news from Maitland River Elementary as the new school year begins next Tuesday.
