Community Rink

Our Bandmaster Rink is up and running, thanks to the volunteers who keep it going. Today one of them had the task of clearing over a foot of accumulated snow.

We are looking for more volunteers, if you are able to help out with the community rink, please let us know.

Fairwinds-Poole Creek Shovel Squad

The Shovel Squad
Has been a success. Some fabulous community members have volunteered to join the squad.

❄️ Snow has been tough this year but we know for some neighbours, it’s been extra tough. With more snow to come, we’re assembling a neighbourhood SHOVEL SQUAD. 
If you need help or unable to clear snow off an obstructing area that’s NOT dealt with by the City, please message us. Also message us if you want to join the Shovel Squad! (great cardio) 👊

No photo description available.

NOTE: Our small Shovel Squad is here to help for Fairwinds-Poole Creek Community only. We encourage your CA and streets to come together and create a Shovel Squad of your own! Together, this Snowmageddon has nothing on us 💪

Stittsville Public High School

Stittsville Public High School Expected to Open in 2021

Where current students are bussed

The Hon. Minister of Education, Lisa Thompson, announced that the Stittsville Public High School is expected to open in 2021.

Stittsville is projected to have over 50,000 residents by 2021 (steadily growing to over 70 thousand residents a decade later), and finally, we’ll be getting our first public high school!  Though the school board has 2 sites set aside for a high school, one in by our community and one on Robert Grant Avenue between Abbott Street East and Fernbank Road based on city approvals, but it will likely be on Robert Grant. Construction is expected to start this in the Fall of 2019 and completed in 2021.

The high school is expected to accommodate about 1,353 students from Grades 7 to 12.   Parents have been lobbying for this since the turn of the century; as their children have either been taking a long bus ride to the nearest public high school or over-crowding Sacred Heart Catholic High School.

Though the High School project hit the top of the Ottawa-Carleton Public School Board’s wish list in May 2016, funding for the project wasn’t announced until 2018, and finally confirmed yesterday.  Goldie Ghamari posted this yesterday for immediate release:

PRESS RELEASE: Status of Stittsville’s Public High School

For more information, contact MPP Goldie Ghamari at 613-416-9639 or goldie.ghamari@pc.ola.org.
The Ottawa- Carleton District School Board would be in the best position to provide updates throughout the project’s development and construction at 613-721-1820 or communications@ocdsb.ca
