A new kitchen expansion was part of the renovation and will not only assist in instructing students, but will be useful for many of the school’s events throughout the year. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

The expansion also provides a new staff work room, off the reception area, as well as administrative office space. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

A big benefit for staff is a lounge and gathering area, complete with amenities, that will allow teachers and other staff a space away from students to complete work or have lunch. Photo by Jordie Dwyer
