CSSVT unveils new facilities at the École des Jeunes-Riverains

The Centre de services scolaire de la Vallée-des-Tisserands (CSSVT) inaugurated its new facilities at the École des Jeunes-Riverains elementary school in Saint-Anicet on November 30. Many students, staff members, partners, and regional elected officials were on hand to celebrate this event.

The expansion project, for which planning began in 2020, was put in place in response to the growing number of students within the territory of the CSSVT, which welcomes an average of 500 additional students per year.

The Ministry of Education invested $9.8M in the expansion project, which allowed for the addition of a new cafeteria with an interactive kitchen for students, a double gymnasium equipped with integrated locker rooms and the latest technology, a new daycare service, a kindergarten corner, an expanded classroom that can accommodate up to 40 students, and a brand-new music room.

The renovations also allowed for the addition of a professional room, a staff room, a new ventilation system, new lockers, and upgrades to the schoolyard.

The project was completed despite several obstacles, including the shortage of wood, staff shortages, a construction shutdown due to lack of materials, and the relocation of cycle-three students during construction. “The Jeunes Riverains school team has shown a great capacity to adapt, and today, which is inauguration day, we can all be proud of the result,” said school principal Stéphanie Bourdeau.

CSSVT general director Marc Girard underlined the tireless dedication of the material resources team and their director Martin Laframboise, who has worked in concert with the school team on the expansion project from the very beginning.

The students and staff the Jeunes-Riverains school will now be able to benefit from facilities that are better adapted to their needs and much more conducive to learning.
