New Airdrie school gets a name!

RVS' new school set to open in the Airdrie community of Hillcrest will be named Northcott Prairie School!

The Board of Trustees deliberated, Feb. 7, 2019, two names for consideration as presented by the Hillcrest Area School Ad Hoc Naming Committee. The successful submission: Northcott Prairie School.

The name was put forward to the committee by the City of Airdrie’s Community Development. Northcott represents two prominent families who settled in Airdrie in the early 1900’s and whose descendants still live, work and volunteer in the area today. Prairie gives homage to the history of the school’s location and recognizes the environmental features that will be a part of the design, including solar panels, outdoor learning spaces and design schemes.

RVS would like to extend a big thank you to all those who submitted names for consideration and to the Ad Hoc Naming committee for its efforts.

Northcott Prairie School is scheduled to open during the 2019/2020 school year. Grade configuration will be determined prior to opening.
