A unique proposal to turn Regina Street Public School into an alternative school focused on ecological learning could save it from being closed.
For the past five years the public school has made use of nearby Mud Lake as a tool for regular hands on outdoor learning. That unique project could save the school from being closed down as the OCDSB looks to save money by shuttering under capacity schools.
In order to keep the school open, parents and area trustee Theresa Kavanagh are advocating that it become a unique regional “lab school” for kindergarten to Grade 6 students focused on environmental education.http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/02/15/alternative-eco-programming-could-keep-regina-street.html
