Construction Updates

In Spring 2020 community consultations were held regarding the accommodation of Regina Mundi and Dante Alighieri students during the upcoming redevelopment. 

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on school operations, the options previously presented are no longer available for the following reasons:

  1. Monsignor Fraser (Norfinch): This previously presented relocation option is no longer available to accommodate the Dante Alighieri school community, as it now serves as the administration site of the St. Anne Catholic Academy, Virtual School of Learning. 

  2. Remaining on Site: Numerous considerations were expressed about the health and safety of students and staff while remaining on site during construction. Due to the pandemic, health and safety considerations are heightened by the need to maintain social distancing as best as possible. The impact on reduced use of site space, and the need for shared space between schools increases the instances of direct contact between students of both schools. 

  3. Don Bosco: The previously presented option at the former Don Bosco school remains the only viable option to accommodate Dante students during redevelopment.
