Rimbey high school to hold grand re-opening

School in process of major renovations

Rimbey Junior Senior High School is in the process of receiving a much needed face lift.

Principal Tim Lekas said the school will hold a grand re-opening on Thu., Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the school library after the meet the teacher event to be held at 7 p.m. The new, improved CTS wing will be dedicated to the late Dale Ewanchuk, a former teacher at the school.

Lekas said the project has cost approximately $3 million and it is money well spent. He said the school, which was built in the ’50s has been slated for these renovations since the early ’90s.

“We have eagerly anticipated this modernization, especially of our CTS shop and we look forward to many years with our students learning in these new spaces.

Some of the work has now been completed such as the main office of the high school and the cafeteria.

There is still some work to be done in the CTS wing, but Lekas anticipates it will be completed in two to four weeks.

Renovations were completed in the school’s gymnasium in 1999/2000 and the work was done in the junior high portion of the school in the mid 90s.

While the ongoing renovations don’t add to the size of the school, Lekas said it has resulted in a better use of space.
