Old Harewood school cited for possible Nanaimo school board relocation

NANAIMO – Report says old Harewood school site is a feasible option should Nanaimo school district relocate its administration centre.

The old Harewood school site is a feasible option should Nanaimo school district decide to relocate its administration centre, says a consultant’s report.

Dale Burgos, district spokesman, said there are no plans, recommendations or money to build a new centre at the Howard Avenue location and the report is tied to the possibility for a new Nanaimo District Secondary School on the current Wakesiah Avenue site.

“The board received it, and there were no motions after receiving it, so they just wanted to see what it would be,” said Burgos.

Harewood Elementary was shuttered in 2004 and demolished last April, although the gym building remains.

The report was penned by Vancouver-based Cornerstone Architecture as per a request by the board last spring.
