The Program

Community Use of Schools is an initiative that supports access to school space outside of school hours for not-for-profit community groups.

It is the intent of the Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board to make Board owned facilities and grounds available for Community Use, provided that the normal educational programme and activities of the school are maintained.

Most of our facilities are available for community use weekdays from 4pm to 10pm, and on weekends.
