Former Qualicum Beach Elementary School gets a new name

Qualicum Commons now hosts a number of organizations

  • Feb. 26, 2015 5:00 a.m.

Qualicum Commons — A Community Gathering Place by the Sea is the new name and tagline for the former Qualicum Beach Elementary School on Primrose St.

The name is based on the idea of a commons, which is a tract of land used by the community as a whole, according to a news release from School District 69 (Qualicum).

The building’s former classrooms are occupied by various community services and programs, including the CEAP Elementary program, District 69 Society of Organized Services and Qualicum Beach School of Dance, and there is space for more tenants. The community can also access a number of meeting spaces, as well as the gymnasium, for daytime and evening use. For further information, or to book a space, please contact School District 69 Operations and Maintenance Department at 250­‐248­‐2067.                                                      — NEWS Staff
