The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) invites members of the public to attend an open house event held at the John N. Given Learning Centre on Friday, March 22 at 2-6 p.m.
Formerly an elementary school, the John N. Given Learning Centre has been repurposed to accommodate the LKDSB's Adult & Continuing Education program and alternative Special Education programs, as of September 2018. Space has also been allotted for community partnerships.
As per the Ministry of Education's direction regarding supporting community partnerships, the John N. Given Learning Centre provides a unique opportunity for Chatham-Kent residents to access a variety of services in one location.
"The John N. Given Learning Centre has become a community hub, bringing together students from the Adult & Continuing Education program, as well as alternative Special Education programs, alongside our community partners," said Director Jim Costello. "We invite the public to visit the unique learning centre to learn more about how this site will continue to serve educators, students and community partners for many years."
The John N. Given Learning Centre is located at 92 Churchill Street, Chatham. Members of the public are invited to drop-in the facility to tour the building.
Media are invited to attend between 2:30-3 p.m.
