The Prince Albert Roman Catholic School Division has found a vendor for four new playgrounds they expect to install this fall.
This includes a number of improvements to all schools that the division intends to complete before winter. The trustees received an update on the improvement at their regular meeting on Monday.
“Since then, the situation has been updated on Thursday,” said Director of Education Laurel Trumer.
“We expect our playgrounds to be installed in the third week of October, of course depending on the weather. We are pumped.”
The division recently completed an audit of all playgrounds. The Request for Proposals (RFP) was for new playgrounds at St. Nicholas, St. Francis School, St. John’s Community School and St. Catherine’s Catholic School.
During the meeting, Chief Financial Officer Greg McAven updated the board on four playgrounds. The RFP was shut down on August 19, he explained.
The division received suggestions from seven different suppliers, each with at least one design. After reviewing the management’s proposals, they selected Madeira Placecapes (Blue Amp) as a supplier for all four playgrounds.
“We got a great response to the RFP. There were seven companies and many designs. One design is at the forefront of all projects and so we look forward to seeing them come to our schools.
During the meeting, the update said that the management has started planning and the target is to be completed by October 31.
Other primary schools, Ecole Holy Cross and St. Michael’s Community School will see the gymnasium floor changed. Tromier said he also received an update on the practice on Thursday.
On September 13, our two gym floors will be fine and ready for use. I know our schools are ready to use the gym floor. It was delayed. It was a time when we needed to take a look at it, and I think it’s a beautiful environment for our students to play and enjoy, so I’m very grateful that our board is moving forward on these special projects. Is.
At Ecole St. Mary’s High School, the project was to purchase more student tables for more space for a cafeteria, and new curtains were installed in the lecture theater to support the performing arts program.
All of these schemes are being used so that all students can reap the benefits according to the trauma in the first interview.
