PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The Assembly Hall Building is the most recognized building at the Prince of Wales School. It is one of the oldest buildings in the school and is so named because it houses the Assembly Hall. It also currently houses the Senior Secondary School Principal’s office, the staff room, the bursar’s office the library and other facilities. It is a two story colonial structure with a dramatic pitched roof that includes a pair of dormers and was constructed about 90 years ago.
The building has deteriorated due to lack of maintenance over the years. Since construction started in March 2015, significant progress has been made on Phase 1 of this project. Phase 1 includes the refurbishment of the Assembly Hall to include new and enlarged toilets that will allow for rental income to the school from public use of the Assembly Hall.
IMPLEMENTATION PERIOD: 2015 and ongoing
COST: $60,000 to date (2016)
PROJECT IMPACT: We expect that the refurbished Assembly Hall will allow for additional income to the Prince of Wales School from rental of the hall to the public.
