Québec veut créer près de 1000 places scolaires au centre-ville de Montréal

Publié le jeudi 31 mai 2018 à 18 h 26

PRIMEUR - Le ministre de l'Éducation, Sébastien Proulx, va dévoiler vendredi des investissements majeurs dans les infrastructures scolaires de Montréal. Québec permettra notamment la création de près de 1000 places scolaires au centre-ville de Montréal – un secteur où les besoins sont criants –, a appris Radio-Canada.

Un texte de Julie Marceau

Le gouvernement donnera notamment le feu vert au projet de rénovation de l’Académie Bourget rue de la Montagne, un investissement d’environ 25 millions de dollars selon nos sources, pour y construire une école primaire. Ce bâtiment patrimonial est actuellement vacant. Il devrait accueillir 14 classes, soit environ 300 élèves.

La Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) avait également fait des représentations pour construire une école dans la cour arrière du Grand Séminaire de Montréal. L’ordre des Sulpiciens avait accepté de louer ce terrain, mais un changement aux règles budgétaires est nécessaire pour donner la possibilité à la CSDM de le louer.

Un changement de règles pourrait d’ailleurs permettre de faire débloquer d’autres projets d’écoles.

Ce sont d’ailleurs ces règles qui sont derrière l’abandon d'un projet dans l’ancien Hôpital de Montréal pour enfants.

Au centre-ville de Montréal, environ 300 enfants doivent actuellement se déplacer dans d’autres quartiers pour aller à l’école.

La densification du centre-ville et l’immigration comptent parmi les facteurs qui augmentent les besoins au centre-ville.

Chaque année, la CSDM remet sa « liste d’épicerie » à Québec pour ses besoins. Elle a soumis en août 2017 une dizaine de projets de construction ou d'agrandissement d’écoles primaires et secondaires, un nombre record.

Un peu d'histoire sur ce bâtiment

Bourget Academy

Sir George Williams Fine Arts began renting Académie Bourget in 1973. The building was completed about 1915 when the sisters of the Congrégation de Notre Dame began teaching there; they lived in the attached residence.

It remained a public school until the early 1970s. It features cherrywood floors, ceramic tile, terra cotta walls, and marble washrooms. By odd coincidence, both Loyola College and Sir George Williams used these facilities, though separated by many years. Montreal‘s School of Sociology and Social Work had been founded in 1918, a joint venture between the Catholic Service Social Guild, Université Laval’s Montreal branch (soon to be Université de Montréal), Loyola College, and the Sisters of Notre Dame Ladies‘ College. The School trained Catholic social workers; it came under the jurisdiction of Loyola in 1920. It was then that the Catholic School Commission granted the School of Sociology the use of space in Bourget Academy for the lectures that were held three evenings weekly. In 1921, the School graduated six trained social workers, thought to be among the first in Canada. The Université de Montréal conferred their degrees through Loyola College. The Loyola records contain no further mention of the school after May 1929. Concordia expects to rent this space until 2006.

Bourget Academy

June 3, 2016
 

At the request of Bishop Ignace Bourget, a new school, the Académie Saint-Antoine, was opened by the sisters of the Congregation de Notre-Dame in 1867 in a rented building on Saint-Antoine Street, from where the school derivits first name. The congregation’s Superior, Sister Saint-Michel (Henriette Dufresne), accompanied by four sisters and two  novices received the first two hundred French and English  speaking girl students. Soon, needing more space, the Congregation bought property on de La Gauchetière Street, and built a brick school, where it moved in 1869.

In 1905, at the request of Father Georges Gauthier, the school opened its first classes for boys which were subsidized by the Montreal Catholic School Commission. In 1910, the academy placed itself under the direction of the School Commission in order to receive grants and ensure its survival. The result was an increase in registrations and, again, more space was required. The School Commission bought property on de la Montagne Street, and contracted Georges-Alphonse Monette, a Montreal architect who devoted much of his career to commissions he received from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Montreal, to construct a new building. The Renaissance Revival style building included a reception hall, a gymnasium, and

classrooms. It featured cherrywood floors, ceramic tile, terracotta walls, and marble washrooms. The sisters lived in the attached residence. The school moved in the summer of 1915 and was renamed Académie Ignace-Bourget. It had ten classes, eight French and two English.

Montreal‘s School of Sociology and Social Work had been founded in 1918, a joint venture between the Catholic Service Social Guild, Université Laval’s Montreal branch, Loyola College, and the Sisters of Notre Dame Ladies’ College. The School trained Catholic social workers, and came under the jurisdiction of Loyola in 1920. It was then that the Catholic School Commission granted the School of Sociology the use of space in Bourget Academy for lectures that were held three evenings weekly. From 1932 to 1940, business classes were offered to young women. From 1967, the school offered only elementary level education. In the following years, the area became less residential and more commercial, the number of families decreased and in 1968 the institution closed. Sir George Williams Fine Arts began renting Académie Bourget in 1973. Since then the building has been the property of Concordia University.
 
Bourget Academy is located at 1214-1230 de la Montagne Street, Montréal
