School sets sights on reno project

Cloverdale Catholic School is planning an upcoming fundraiser to help pay for some much-needed renovations at the 57-year-old school.

The building, originally constructed in 1955, has served the school community well, and has seen many additions, renovations and upgrades over the years.

But even with the generous support of the school families, the building is starting to show its age, says principal Jason Borkowski.

It’s due for a makeover.

“Several areas of the school, most notably washrooms and the school entrance areas, are in dire need of renovation,” Borkowski said in a letter addressed to supporters and potential sponsors of its upcoming Celtic Pub Night fundraiser.

Additionally, the school’s playground equipment is inadequate to deal with the demands of the growing student population.

The April 13 dinner and auction is being organized by the school’s parent fundraising group.

Chair Jacquie Tomandel says members have been out seeking donations from the community.

The list of silent and live auction items ranges from small to large – there are even some fabulous holiday excursions up for grabs.

The evening’s entertainment includes Irish dancing and live music.

Tickets are $25 if purchased before April 5. After that, they’re $30 each. They’re available by calling the school at 604-574-5151.

The venue is Precious Blood Parish.

The doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner starts at 6:30 p.m., and the live auction will start at 8 p.m.
