New Sacred Heart School
We welcome you to our information portal regarding the construction of the new Sacred Heart Catholic School in Espanola. In collaboration with Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario, the new Sacred Heart will be part of a $25.2 million dollar project. We anticipate the new Sacred Heart opening for students in the spring of 2021.
Yes and no. The gymnasium (which includes a stage) will be a shared space between the two schools as will a small chapel near the front entrance. Each school will have its own main entrance and space when it comes to offices, classrooms and kindergarten play areas. Other outside areas will be shared by the schools for such activities as recess, outdoor physical education classes and special events. Scheduling for the use of all shared spaces has yet to be determined.
No. The Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board and Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel- Ontario share space in other communities (Wawa, Hornepayne, Chapleau).
Construction is underway at the site. The contractor for the project is Build North.
Due to the closer proximity of its Board office the Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario is the lead in this project. The Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board remains in constant contact with all parties involved in this project.
