St. Marcellinus Catholic Secondary School – P.I.P. Room Alteration
St. Marcellinus Catholic Secondary School located at 730 Courtneypark Drive West, Mississauga has recently undergone a renovation to convert one standard Art Classroom into a P.I.P. space (Planning for Independence Room). This program is designed to teach Special Needs students life skills and provide the necessary daily care. The new layout accommodates a Kitchen, Orthopaedic Washroom and a Quiet Room (Snoezelen). The room conversion design combines the aesthetics of the existing school while providing some visual interest through the use of interior finish materials making the space feel comfortable and more like home.
