Ecole Beaufort Still Owned by Halifax Regional School Board

(Monday, August 19/2002)-- Recent media reports stating that Halifax Regional Municipality is working with an individual interested establishing a circus school at the former Ecole Beaufort School in Halifax are erroneous.

Mayor Peter Kelly said this morning that he met the individual informally at a recent social function and stated that the municipality supports, in principle, the idea of a circus school for promising young entertainers and performers in the region.

However, Mayor Kelly said there was no specific mention of any site during the discussion and the individual's name was passed along to HRM's Real Property Services.

For the record, Halifax Regional Municipality does not own the former Ecole Beaufort School and lands. They have not been released to HRM by the Halifax Regional School Board and the transfer is not expected to take place for several months.
