Pope Francis Catholic Elementary School and the YMCA Child Care Centre is currently undergoing renovations to the existing school and the construction of a two storey addition to accommodate the growing Timmins community. Drawing from the cultural fabric of Northern Ontario and the religious teachings of the school, the design aims to connect the students to each other and their community by incorporating symbolic views to the sky, attractive and uplifting common areas, and an apparent Catholic and First Nations identity.
