Sudbury, ON – On Tuesday, September 28th, 2021, Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic School celebrated the official opening of its new elementary wing.
In attendance were Elder, Sandra Corbiere from Sagamok and Wahnapitae First Nation, Deacon Steve Callaghan, staff and students from Bishop Alexander Carter, Trustees, and central office staff.
Key features of the upgrades at Bishop Alexander Carter, include a renovated gymnasium and eight new, modern and spacious classrooms. In addition, the new 7 and 8 wing is equipped with new and advanced technological equipment such as Chromebooks, and multi-media capabilities, all designed to grow students’ knowledge, inspire them and to maximize their learning.
According to Bishop Alexander Carter’s Principal, Stephanie Venturi, these additions provide precious opportunities to benefit students’ understanding of different subjects and help unlock each child’s potential. “Technology is the great engine of educational mobility. Today’s minds are tomorrow’s future, and with the new opportunities we have for both teachers and students in the wing, we’re confident that we can provide the tools and instruction that children need to thrive in their chosen pathways.”
“Being here for three weeks, we’re starting to see the school community come together, and it’s beautiful.” Says teacher, Jody O’Daiskey “We’re all working together to collaborate, and I’m excited to see how this develops more as time goes on. We have a great team of teachers who all have different subject backgrounds that are going to create a strong and cohesive division, and I think it’s going to be a great year.”
“It was a delight to see students in my community learning in the new classrooms at Bishop. It is an amazing school community, and I’m thrilled we can honour this new chapter.” – SCDSB Chair, Michael Bellmore
