Holy Name of Mary is getting a $4.9 million addition!

Holy Name of Mary Catholic School in Almonte will receive $4.9 million for the construction of a six classroom addition and daycare. “The school currently has five portables on site, and the addition of six classrooms will provide our students with a more energy efficient, modern learning environment. The community is also very excited to be receiving a full-time daycare program for toddlers and preschoolers in a new facility,” noted Board Chair, Todd Lalonde.

“Almonte is a growing community and the addition of permanent classrooms and a daycare is much needed for the school. Our students deserve to learn in permanent facilities, and I know this will help meet both the needs of the community, as well as the students, for the long term,” explained Lanark County Trustee, Nancy Kirby.

The six-classroom addition and daycare are planned to open in late 2018.
