Saint-Anicet ‘lends’ space to Jeunes-Riverains school

Under an agreement reached between Saint-Anicet and the Vallée-des-Tisserands School Services Centre, the municipality is lending its community centre to the École des Jeunes-Riverains to hold classes in until the expansion of the school, including the construction of a new gymnasium, is finished. “The temporary loan of the community centre is a sign of the importance we place on the young people of our community,” Mayor Gino Moretti said in a press release.

Students in grades 5 and 6 began reporting to the community centre on March 10 to take their classes, and others have since followed suit. The arrangement was deemed an acceptable compromise that allows for the school’s gym construction deadline to be met at the end of June. The use of the space is also important with regard to pandemic restrictions, as it allows students to keep learning in a safe, positive environment.
The municipality’s announcement also said that the loan of the community centre granted by the municipal council demonstrates the strong spirit of collaboration that exists between Saint-Anicet and its local school, that it benefits the children as well as the entire community, and that the Vallée-des-Tisserands School Services Centre had expressed its thanks to the council.

The municipality says that in the event that COVID-19 restrictions loosen, it is prepared to start holding community activities in other locations.
