In September, 2016. The New Frontiers School Board confirmed the announcement of the construction of a specialized school in Chateauguay in partnership with the Commission scolaire des Grandes-Seigneuries . Click here for info and history on the project!
Chateauguay’s new specialized school is located at 201 Sutterlin Boulevard.
This project is the result of a partnership between the Commission scolaire des Grandes-Seigneuries and the New Frontiers School Board. With a regional mandate, the school will accommodate students aged 4 to 21, at the preschool, elementary and secondary levels, who have a profound or moderate to severe intellectual disability and associated disorders.
Construction began this winter and, when completed, will accommodate up to 85 Francophone and Anglophone students and almost as many staff. The building and site design allow for future expansion to increase capacity to a total of 140 students. The school includes 16 classrooms, multi-sensory rooms, and specialized areas for occupational therapy, music therapy, hygiene needs, meal preparation, a therapeutic pool, gymnasium and an outdoor playground.
We are seeking the participation of the entire community to find a name for this new specialized school!
Some things to consider:
- The deadline to suggest a name is September 30, 2018.
- We are looking for a school name in French that will also be easy to pronounce in English.
- The name must be unique, original or significant.
- If you suggest the name of a person or a character, it must be meaningful to our community (education, health, historical person, pioneer, etc.); it must not be the name of a living person; nor a religious name.
