When we open schools for community use, we develop schools as the hub of the community and enhance quality of life for children, youth, families and older adults. Rainbow District School Board welcomes community groups into its schools to provide programs, services and activities. As safe, caring, nurturing and familiar environments that are close and convenient, schools have wonderful facilities to offer their neighbours. This includes gyms, libraries, auditoriums, lecture halls, cafeterias and classroom space. If your group is interested in offering activities during the evenings and on weekends, we want to hear from you.
Community Use of Schools is an initiative that supports access to school space outside of school hours for the community.
To book a school facility, community groups can book school facilities through the Community Use of Schools Online Permit Application System.
