​LaSalle School Has a Name

- Trustees approve suggestion -

The new K-8 school in LaSalle, which will replace the current Prince Andrew Public School sometime in the winter of 2020-21, will be known as Legacy Oak Trail Public School.

A committee of Board and school community members considered suggestions and ideas and forwarded the name to Trustees for their consideration at their Nov. 19th public meeting.

The committee proposed that the name reflects the natural heritage of the LaSalle area, which is a Carolinian Forest zone, and incorporates a promise to be upheld by future actions of the school community to protect the environment and foster peace, hope and harmony.

The vote by the Board of Trustees was unanimous. The appointment of a general contractor and construction of the school will commence once final approval of the design and budget is received from the Ministry of Education.
