As Niverville High School goes through the second phase of construction, it’s looking less like a mass of wood and rebar and more like a place for high-school students to learn.

Hanover School Division’s assistant secretary-treasurer Phil Guenther said he was optimistic as he toured through the construction site of the high school. He told trustees at their monthly public meeting on Tuesday night that all of the millwork is nearly finished in the interior, which includes the doors, flooring and wall paneling.

There are also rows of new lockers on the second floor, waiting to be stuffed with textbooks and gym bags. The best part of his tour, Guenther shared, was walking into the gym and seeing the groundwork finished.

Planning for the addition of five extra classrooms at Mitchell Elementary School also continues. That renovation project, which also includes a new learning commons and a bigger parking area, remains in the planning and design phase. Design drawings are expected to be completed by Aug. 13.
