New School Construction Project: Moving Forward!

Great news Prince Andrew Learning Community. I attended a press conference this morning with local MPP, School Board Trustees, Director , Superintendants and Principals which announced 3 construction projects with the GECDSB are moving forward into the tendering process,

This announcement included over 12 million dollars to complet Legacy Oak Trail Public School in Lasalle to replace Prince Andrew. What this means is over the next 42 days our project will go to tender and construction companies will bid to build our new school. Within the next couple of months we should kknow who the company is that will build the school and depending on weather may even see some action at the site.

This is very exciting news and I look forward as the process will now begin locally. I will try to keep everyone updated as more information is available.

Legacy Oak Trail Public School: A New Beginning!

It is official Legacy Oak Trail Public School will be the name of the new school that will replace Prince Andrew during the 2020/2021 school year.  It is an exciting opportunity for our entire school community to get behind. Building a new school can be an exciting time for staff, students and families. It is a special endeavour that not everyone will be afforded in their lifetime but your children and you have this wonderful opportunity. Throughout the process I will keep the community informed of the progress at every stage. We are currently waiting for Ministry approval of the plans and budget to begin the building process.

The Naming Committee consisted of the Area Trustee: Ron LeClair,  Board Director: Erin Kelly, School Superintendant: Todd Awender, Staff Reps: Mrs. Ardovini and Mrs. Guignard, Parent Council Reps: Mrs. Kozsegi and Mrs. Jasey and Student Reps: Taylor Brisco and Kayla Poulin.  We met on two occasions with the early conversations focusing on what makes a good school name and later around some very specific topics. The entire committee felt it was important to represent the local area and environment.  We then listed ten or so names that came forward from the community survey including continuing with Prince Andrew.  Considering we were going to be in a new building in a new location, with French Immersion students joining us, we felt a new name was needed for this new school.  

The committee focused on the location and discussed the nearby Lasalle Trail that runs along Laurier. We also discussed the predominatley Carolinian Forests that used to cover much of the area in South Western Ontario.  It is at this time we started to look into species that thrived in the area, eventually agreeing on the Oak tree,  as there are as many as 10 species in the Carolinian Forest. The word Legacy was discussed as a possible anchor for the name to represent the longevity of the new buiding and to represent what we hope to leave as a school community.

The next stage involves the entire community as we begin to discuss possible mascots and school colours. Again we will reach out for ideas hoping to narrow down our search.  With a school mascot and school colours we will try to match them to the school name. We will take into consideration other school mascots and colours across the board and come up with something unique to us.  It will be a fun time and we will seek lots of input before making a decision. 

Change is never easy for anyone especially those who have been around Prince Andrew for a long time. There have been great things that this current school community has been involved in and great memories created over the years.  These will never be forgotten. 

What we hope to do over the next few years is create some new opportunities for this wonderful learning community in a brand new building that will afford a wonderful learning environment for all involved. So lets say it again: Legacy Oak Trail Public School.  The more you see it, and the more you say it, will help to make it yours. Something we can all be proud of as we begin this new journey!

Parent Council Meeting and Elections

We will be holding our first meeting of the school year to establish our Parent Council for the 2019/2020 school year on Thursday, October 10th at 6:00 pm. All parents are welcome to attend to find out more about this wonderful opportunity to support your children in their educational journey and to learn what is happening in and around the school.  We will also be holding elections for all positions including: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. Your attendance at this meeting does not mean you need to run for any of these positions as we also need members at large who simply attend meetings to share their opinions and partipate however they feel comfortable.  A memo will be coming home to all families with further details on how to run for any of the positions before the end of the week.  If you still have question please contact the office.
