In March of 2012, the Strait Regional School Board voted to close Rev. H. J. MacDonald School, located in Heatherton, Nova Scotia. The building has since been turned over to the Municipality of the County of Antigonish.
Early in 2013, the community of Heatherton held a meeting and formed a Feasibility Committee to consider how the school facility could potentially be used by the community. To ensure that any plans brought forward reflect the community’s wishes, the Feasibility Committee engaged the StFX Extension Department to facilitate a community consultation process.
The attached document describes the community consultation process and its findings.
