After several years of deliberation and failed plans for a new school, the town of Revelstoke, British Columbia, has announced an opening date for when students can enter the new facility, according to the Revelstoke Times Review.

Students will be able to enter the new building by November 30, as the construction for the new school is almost completed, with just the finishing touches and wiring to be added before the grand opening, reported the news source.

There will be significant additions to the new school, as classrooms, outdoor patios, the gymnasium, an auto shop and cafeteria are included in the construction. Along with the improved infrastructure of the area where kids will operate, the administration had a radiant heating system installed to provide warmth, according to the Review.

"Kids can hear and teachers don’t have to yell over the HVAC," Earl Woodhurst, the district Principal, told the news source of the benefits of the radiant heating system.

Radiant heating systems operate in a quiet manner and can provide warmth without the need for radiators, heating ducts and air vents, which can decrease the amount of pollutants in the air compared with older systems.
