Work is underway to replace bricks on the old section of St. Patrick’s High School. The project will cost the Central Quebec School Board $548,888.

The books and rulers may have been put away at St. Patrick’s High School, but work continues on bricks and mortar. Scaffolding went up a few weeks ago on the three-storey building at the corner of Rue de Maisonneuve and Avenue de Salaberry. Since then workers have been stripping old bricks from the structure to make way for a facade of new bricks.
