Input received during this round of community consultation will be considered, along with financial and technical information, in the design for the new secondary school.

In addition to providing feedback on the draft Project Aspirations, many participants shared comments related to the design of the new school, and some expressed an interest in providing input on the design in the future. We understand and appreciate all feedback, and will explore opportunities to incorporate design input into our consultation plan moving forward. We’ll share an update on our consultation plan and activities soon.

Further community consultation opportunities are planned for 2017. Please continue to check for updates.
