Knowlton Academy’s Playground Opening!
Knowlton Academy Inaugurates its
Playground Make Over!
Lac-Brome, September 30, 2016 – The students at Knowlton Academy have another reason to be active and love the outdoors this school year with the upgrades and improvements to their school playground. The school community, the Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) and the ministère de l’Éducation, de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES), have invested over $100,000 into the project. The new installations and upgrades include a giant chess set, a dek hockey rink and a gazebo that will be used as an outdoor classroom equipped with benches and a blackboard!
“We wanted to make upgrades that would provide the best possible opportunities for students to learn and grow in a safe inviting environment. With the addition of our outdoor classroom, one of only a few, students can be outside in the moment while learning about their environment. We could not have accomplished it without the hard work of our volunteers, the generosity of our donors and the added support of the MEES and the school board”, expressed Renalee Gore, Principal of Knowlton Academy.
For the playground project the $100,000 investment was broken down with $25,000 from the MEES under the measure Embellissement des cours d’école 2015, $25,000 from the ETSB under the same measure and $50,000 from the school and its community. La Ville de Lac-Brome, Pacte Rural and Knowlton Packaging made major contributions totaling over half of the monies raised by the school and its community. “This is in addition to the numerous donations from local businesses, community groups and the countless hours of volunteer work. I also want to thank Susan Muir for leading this project from beginning to end. Without her vision, support and total dedication this project would not have come to fruition ”, expressed Ms. Gore
Knowlton Academy provides educational services to over 230 students from kindergarten to grade 7. It offers students a quality education and the advantage of a bilingual learning environment as well as numerous enriching programs such as music, dance, skiing, robotics, pottery, sports, and a family literacy book bag program to name but a few.
