A new addition to Collège Sacré Coeur - 1

The private middle school within the walls of Richelieu, the Collège Sacré Coeur, has acquired a courtyard building on rue Henri Proust which will become an extension of school premises.  The building was originally the carriage court and servant's quarters of the grand house adjacent.
The structure is being restored and a pupil of the collège has told that it will be used among other things for gymnastic facilities.
We will return with more pictures as the project progresses.
