Kemptville Pavilion Unveils Exciting Plans at First Anniversary Celebration

Saturday, June 10, 2017, KEMPTVILLE - Families in Kemptville and the surrounding area gathered this Saturday in the École catholique Sainte-Marguerite-Bourgeoys schoolyard to celebrate the Kemptville Pavilion’s first anniversary. Parents and children alike soaked up the sunshine while feasting on free BBQ and having fun with a photo rally and inflatable games.

The school also took advantage of the community gathering to make some announcements about what’s new for the 2017 school year.

New concentration details announced​

The school was very proud to unveil details of the new concentration in Human and Planetary Health with a focus on climate change for students in grades 7 to 12 this coming school year.

Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) Director of Education Réjean Siroisis very pleased with the new program because the content aligns perfectly with 21st-century school goals and reflects the community’s interests. “The impact of climate change on the environment, health, and sustainable development is clearly a major issue, and we are concerned about how it will affect future generations. Thanks to the new Human and Planetary Health program, students will be more informed about this reality. Their education will focus on developing a sense of civic duty and eco-responsibility to help them become engaged and ethical citizens. Collaboration with various community partners to deliver this new program will give students options for career exploration, co-op placements, training, and certification.”

New Phase 2 for Kemptville Pavilion​

The CECCE also announced plans for phase 2 development to increase capacity at the Kemptville Pavilion. The board reached a deal with the Agriculture Research Institute of Ontario (ARIO) to lease Gibson Hall, which is to be renovated and will open in 2018. The new classrooms will enable the pavilion to house different grades in separate buildings. Students in junior kindergarten to grade 6 will continue to use Fraser Hall, and Gibson Hall will be for students in grades 7 to 12. The younger students will also have access to specialized facilities in Gibson Hall.

According to CECCE Chair Johanne Lacombe, “The CECCE is confident that these new classrooms will enable the school to better serve families in the region who want their children to have an excellent education that encourages all students, enriched and inspired by their Catholic and Francophone identity, to progress toward developing their full potential.” Ms. Lacombe added that, “The CECCE and the ARIO signed a 10-year lease with two 5-year extension options. For parents who entrust their children’s education to the CECCE, this signals stability.”

Preschool program

The CECCE also took the opportunity to announce to families that, for the 2017 school year, it will offer a full-time preschool program for two-and-a-half- to three-year-olds at theKemptville Pavilion’s Fraser Hall. During its first year of operation, this competitively priced program will have just five spaces available, but the CECCE is working on other projects to expand the range of preschool services available to Kemptville families.

Together for
success and well-being of each student
