The newly renovated and expanded Kennebecasis Park Elementary School officially opened Feb. 25 in Rothesay.
The renovation of the school included upgrades to its architectural, mechanical and electrical systems; as well as a wheelchair lift and site improvements to improve accessibility.
The school was also enlarged through the construction of a 1,545-square-metre addition that features new classrooms, resource and administration spaces, and a gymnasium/ancillary space. The school now accommodates about 200 students.
The school was originally constructed in 1964.
“As a result of our $6.5-million investment in upgrades to Kennebecasis Park Elementary School, it is now a modern, state-of-the-art facility,” Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Marie-Claude Blais stated.
