Four local schools getting portable classrooms

Several local schools will have some breathing space next year with the addition of 10 portables, which have begun to arrive and are ready to install on school property.

École Central Elementary and Alwin Holland Elementary will each get three portables, and Robert Ogilvie Elementary and C.M. Finch Elementary will each get two, according to Doug Boyd, secretary-treasurer for the school district.

“They do look very well constructed ... a majority of the units would be installed by the 13th,” he said.

The portables will help accommodate an expected increase in enrolment, and provide a better learning space for students.

The portables at École Central will provide much needed classroom space after a renovation of the school’s interior relinquished some rooms for an open concept learning area.

The portables are arriving in half units, and are currently being staged next to the school district office until enough arrive to begin the installations.
