Bearspaw Christian School is currently planning for Phase II of its Capital Campaign – “Creating Spaces.” We are currently in the preliminary stages of working with our architects to define our specific requirements which will lead to building drawings plus, we are updating our site plan.
Our school is full and has been for the last several years. At the same time, we are located in a centre of major residential development intended to house about 150 thousand new Calgarians. All of these new homes are within easy reach of our school. We don’t intend to turn these new families and their children away.
Thankfully, through the foresight and vision of previous school leaders, we have been blessed with a 38 acre campus ensuring space for uncrowded expansion.
We anticipate Phase II will add roughly 20 thousand sq ft including 8 to 10 new classrooms. This will provide space for another 200 students. We expect this new space will enable us to expand the services we offer families to include their preschool children, plus help them with their child care needs. Additionally, we plan to us some of the space for new classrooms making room for growth in our grade school population.
