Mrs. Kingstone has received the official building permit from the Regional District and construction is officially underway! With the support of our lead donor group, ground has broken and bulk excavation is proceeding quickly, thanks in no small part to the beautiful weather we have enjoyed. The excavation is nearing 50% complete and we can see the location of the new Athletic and Activities Centre beginning to take shape – exciting times!
All that material has to go somewhere and rather than trucking it off-site at great expense, we are repurposing it on campus. A significant amount is being stored for backfill around the foundation, once built. You’ll see still more being piled into a “berm” on the far side of the large field. Later, once it has had time to dry out over the summer months it will be shaped and seeded to grow into a grass hillside perfect for spectators watching games on practices on the field.
Thank you for all your support – stay tuned for more updates.
