Dalhousie Site Visit

This past June, Halifax Regional School Board students participating in the Building Futures for Youth program were treated to a behind the scenes tour of the site of the new Wallace McCain Learning Commons at Dalhousie University.  29 Students along with a handful of HRSB and NSCC staff, all equipped head to toe in proper personal protective equipment, got a first-hand view of all that goes into a major institutional construction project in progress.

A BIG thank you to both Dalhousie University and BIRD Construction for providing the students with a great morning and a fantastic learning experience!
