Fundy Middle and High School has opened their new Learning Commons! The learning commons re-imagines
the library space to create flexible, and innovating teaching and learning
areas to encourage and inspire student learning. Our learning commons allows
students to step outside the traditional classroom and into a comfortable,
creative and technology rich environment. From white board brainstorming
tables, to iPad and laptops, to comfortable seating, to teaming tables with
monitors, the FMHS learning commons represents one of the most, if not the
most, unique 21 century learning environment in a provincial high school. We
are proud to officially open this amazing new space in our building and we are
thankful for the district and the leadership of our Home and School Committee
in helping make this dream a reality.
