Grand Opening


In 1919 the Ursuline Sisters began building a remarkable dream. A century later, we celebrate that dream and set a course for our next century with the official opening of our new state-of-the-art Academic Pavilion.

Since our founding, Brescia has been proud to offer an empowering and student-centred education to the women leaders of tomorrow. Our remarkable new learning, teaching and research facility honours the Ursuline legacy, and was intentionally designed with our students at the forefront of every decision. The light-filled Pavilion includes: three state-of-the-art food and science laboratories; sensory and research laboratories; two multi-tiered classrooms; an active learning classroom designed for dynamic group work; a purpose-built counseling room; an expansive student lounge and a community gathering space.
