To improve the overall student experience at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School in Rosemount, the English Montreal School Board allocated more than $2 million to complete multiple projects.

Over the course of the past two years, several aspects and areas of the school were renovated and reconfigured, including: the schoolyard, bus drop-off area and staff parking lot. Inside the school, upgrades are being made to the electrical equipment, insulation, piping and ventilation.

“Our school yard is beautiful! Students have different areas to play games such soccer, champ ball, basketball, and checkers,” said Principal Tanya Alvares. “There are different sections for kids to draw on black boards, to sit on the grass and hang out with friends, and benches to relax!  There are even two areas where staff can take their groups out and do an outdoor lesson! We are looking forward for the trees to grow to provide a nice, shaded region too!”
