It is with great pleasure that we share news with you about our upcoming school expansion!
Bodwell High School will begin a new 7-storey addition with underground parking to our waterfront campus in North Vancouver, Canada in April 2015 in order to continue to maximize and optimize a safe and secure learning and living environment for our Bodwell community.
With our current student body of 550 from 45 countries, we find this a wonderful time to expand our facilities and Boarding Program with more dormitory places. The new addition is about 55,000 sq.ft. Upon completion, total floor area of Bodwell will be around 150,000 sq.ft., good for up to 650 students and 500 boarders.
The new addition will offer the following features:
|· 5 Floors of Dormitories
· 2nd Gymnasium
· 2nd Cafeteria
· Large Presentation Theatre
|· Expanded Library
· Open Entry Atrium & Floating Walk-Way
· Improved Outdoor Space & Play Court
· More Underground Parking
Our new addition will be completed in the summer of 2016! Stay tuned for more information on this exciting new venture!
Please Note: Construction will begin in 2015 and continue until the summer of 2016. During this time Bodwell will take all necessary measures to ensure ongoing work causes the minimum amount of impact on general school and dormitory life. For example, the school field will be inaccessible only during the Summer 2015 Term (Apr-July). Extra safety measures will be implemented. Construction noise will be controlled to an acceptable level. All student access (including during dormitory hours) will be via the front entrance with the construction zone being fenced off. The majority of the current building will not be affected by the construction and will remain operational as normal for the majority of the timeline. Classes and learning will continue to run consistent with our guidelines and high standards of expectations and support.
