Royal West Dedicates New Field!

Physical Education has become the most anticipated class at Royal West Academy in Montreal West as students have begun using “The Montreal Westward Rotary Field,” a completely renovated $135,000 state-of-the-art field which recently opened for business.

The project was funded by the Royal West Academy Home and School Association, the Montreal Westward Rotary, the Montreal West Civic Recreation Association (C.R.A), the Steve and Rob Michelin Hockey Tournament, the English Montreal School Board and the Ministry of Education, Leisure and Sports (MEL) through Schoolyard Beautification Grant.  This field will serve the Royal West community as well as the children of Montreal West through various C.R.A. programs.

The project was initiated in 2009 by then Principal Mary Reynolds and completed under the watchful eye of her successor Tony Pita. Last summer the field was completely redone to include natural grass, proper drainage and an automatic sprinkler system.
