Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thursday, August 19, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGi HERALD 3 Schools are iveH-iised Lcthbridgc schools are popular places these days for groups need- ing meel.ing rooms, sports facili- ties and working areas for other non-commercial purposes. Under a "joint use of schools" agreement among the two school districts, the cily and parks and recreation department, all schools are available for such uses at any time outside of regular school hours. City school grounds have been for many years operated as a co- operative venture between the schools and the city's parks and recreation office, which is a major reason for their usual large size. This way the grounds may be used for a variety of non-student activities, becoming small com- munity parks as well as school playing areas. Two years ago the joint use of schools agreement extended this co-operation to include the schools themselves. Schools had often been used lor non-school activities in the past, but the new arrangement formalized the system and pro- vided for some special manage- ment agreements. The schools arc used for club meetings, neighborhood sports, workshop sessions, teachers' pro- fessional association meetings, as churches on Sundays and a wide variety of other uses. This past summer, Winston Churchill High School. Catholic Central High School and Gilbert Paterson Elementary-Junior High School were used throughout the summer as drop-in centres for cily young people, under an arrange- ment with the federal govern- ment's Opportunities for Youth program. University students supervised the drop-in centre activities, which provided a local recreation centre complete with coffee house in three city locations. Tn general, Hamilton Junior High School tends to be the most- used school, followed by Assump- tion School, Agnes Davidson Elc- menlary School and Galbmilli Elc- mcnlary School. Interested groups may book any city school alter classes and on weekends through the parks and recreation department at cily hall. Tn most cases a small custodial fee is charged; in a few cases, the use charge must be slightly larger.
