Laurier Macdonald Career Centre to open their doors for first-ever car show
The English Montreal School Board’s (EMSB) Laurier Macdonald Career Centre will hold an Open House and barbeque at their Des Grandes Prairies Campus (6065 boulevard des Grandes-Prairies) in St. Leonard on Friday September 23 (2 pm to 7 pm) for its first car show.
“This event will allow us to showcase the incredible programs offered at our Centre, all the while providing our guests with the chance to admire nice cars and enjoy some great food generously donated by sponsors,” said Principal Anna-Maria Borsellino.
Both old-fashioned and newer car models, offered by teachers, industry partners and local collectors, will be on display around the school grounds. One of the cars will open up into a barbecue, offering guests sausage sandwiches and pizza free of charge.
Prior to enjoying the cars, all visitors will be invited inside to tour the spacious des Grand-Prairies campus, which is home to the vocational centre’s Automobile Mechanics, Welding & Fitting, and Mechanics of Electric Vehicles programs. Representatives from the school’s Aesthetics, Hair Removal and Hairdressing programs, offered out of the Centre’s Jean Talon campus, will also be on hand.
“We pride ourselves as a leader in the Automotive, Welding and Beauty industry thanks, in large part, by our team of dedicated and experienced faculty of industry specialists,” said Ms. Borsellino. “All of our programs lead to a Diploma of Vocational Studies or Attestation of Vocational Specialization issued by the Quebec Ministry of Education. We are committed to providing relevant, cutting-edge courses and programs and ensuring a hands-on, accessible, and supporting environment for all of our students.”
