Lord Beaverbrook High School

​High School Grades 10-12 | Modernization

Expected Completion Date | Fall 2018

Modernization Update #8

Feb. 2018

School modernization is on schedule and progressing well at Lord Beaverbrook High School. As we near completion of phase three of the modernization, we are pleased to provide this update. Preparations are being made to transition students into our new facilities for the start of semester two as follows:

  1. Culinary/Commercial Foods Lab
  2. Cosmetology lab
  3. Auto Body shop
  4. Building Construction and Woodworking shops
  5. Computer lab (across from the Dance Studio)

The last phase of construction has started, focusing on the Automotive facility, new Heavy Machinery facility, and new Pre-Engineering lab. Inside the school, students can anticipate safety barriers built around the construction areas. These barriers will be found mostly in hallways. Students are asked to be considerate of the workspace, and be considerate for each other as they move between classrooms and around the school.

North side of our school is out of bounds to students

This includes the street that runs along the north side of our school, ending in Ashley Crescent. Before, during and after school hours, students should not be in this area for safety reasons. Cooperation of everyone is appreciated.

You can keep up-to-date on the progress of the modernization through the project page on the CBE website: Lord Beaverbrook High School Program Modernization

Further updates will be provided as needed.

Lord Beaverbrook High School
