Dates Set for Public School Redesign

north-central-project

As we mentioned before, this new public school will have the largest impact to the youngest children in our community, and those children still to come.  They need to be part of the journey!  Please forward this story or a link to the Lakeview Community Association website to all the new parents, expecting parents, or future parents in the neighbourhood — they need to be part of the discussion!

The dates have been set for the next three meetings to design a new public school in the greater Lakeview community.   As we reported a couple weeks back, Regina Public Schools is combining Argyle and Athabasca schools and building a new school in the neighbourhood.  The  dates for the next three sessions have been made public.  Now’s the time to tell all your neighbours and be part of the design process!

Site Visioning

This is an interactive workshop where everyone can share their vision for a new school.  What do we want to see? What do we want to avoid?

Athabasca School Gym

Site Opportunities and Concept Design Presentation

This meeting will have the architects share concept designs based on our input from the Visioning meeting and their experience designing new schools in Canada and around the world.  We get to give more feedback based on the concepts that are presented.

Argyle School Gym

Conceptual Design Presentation

This presentation starts getting more concrete.  School site designs are presented specifically for the existing Athabasca and Argyle sites (or additional sites if some come up) and advantages and disadvantages described.  After this meeting the final recommendations and decisions will be made by the school board.

Athabasca  School Gym

 

It’s so very important that if you have young children, or care about public schools, or care about community development, or care about attracting young parents to the community, that you attend these sessions and share your ideas!  Let’s fill the gyms with people and ideas and build something that will last for decades to come!
