Capital Projects Update
Niagara Catholic currently has two capital projects in progress – a $1.5-million addition to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Education Centre to create three new childcare rooms, and a $5-million addition to Monsignor Clancy Catholic Elementary School to allow for the consolidation of Monsignor Clancy Catholic with St. Charles Catholic Elementary School.
The tender for the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic project was scheduled to close March 6. The Monsignor Clancy project is currently awaiting Ministry of Education approval.
