During Ecole Hammond Bay’s Grand Opening Ceremony for the expanded gym, Minister of Education, the Honourable Rob Fleming, announced support for a new 12 classroom addition at the school. The Honourable Rob Fleming said it will help eliminate crowded spaces and portables at the school and will enhance capacity. The ceremony included the singing of the National Anthem, a traditional welcome, speeches from dignitaries, a jazz ensemble and even a volleyball game between students and senior staff, trustees and Minister Fleming. Was a great morning! Thanks to the Ministry for recognizing a need in NLPS. Students, staff and parents are all excited about the full-size gymnasium and looking forward to the expansion.
