Cornwall - Sep. 22, 2011 - Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School (CCVS) kicked off its first year as a grades 7-12 school, and Principal Robert Currier said he’s received excellent feedback so far.
“We’ve had a fantastic start,” he said. “It’s gone just as well as we expected.”
Previously a grades 11-12 school, CCVS staff and students have gone through a significant transition over the last few months, updating facilities and programs to accommodate the approximately 980 new and returning students.
“We’re still emptying boxes but 95 per cent is done,” Currier said.
CCVS students can now enjoy a new fitness centre, a learning commons area, new lockers and new technology.
“The new students are quite impressed with the technology equipment we have, such as the SMART Boards,” Currier said.
CCVS is one of two Cornwall schools that have gone through a grade structure transition this year. St. Lawrence Secondary School (SLSS), previously known as St. Lawrence Intermediate School, now welcomes grade 11 students, making it a grades 7-11 school. In September 2012, SLSS will transition again to a grades 7-12 school.
“I look forward to all of the students and staff merging as one, so that we can make sure that CCVS is successful for many years to come,” Currier said. “We’re well on our way to building that foundation of school spirit and pride.”
