Beautification  Grant – Public Consultation

The South Hull Governing Board is in the early stages of preparing a bid response to the Quebec Government for a “School Beautification Grant”.   This grant is intended to fund the enhancement of the school grounds (i.e. the exterior), for the sake of the students, the teaching curriculum, and the after-hours use of the grounds by the community.   To help determine the direction of this bid, the Governing Board will be hosting an open Public Consultation session on Wednesday, February 11, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the large gym.  All parents, teachers and neighbourhood residents are invited to attend; the South Hull bid will be influenced by the feedback received.   Please support our efforts by attending as this is a tremendous opportunity to invest in the school’s future!  If you have any questions, or wish to provide feedback electronically, please contact Marek Carroll at
