Former Davis Elementary in Carbonear

In a message posted Monday morning to its Facebook page, Provincial Fitness said its owner has acquired the former Davis Elementary School property. Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD) closed that school in 2013. Students now attend the brand new K-8 Carbonear Academy.

“We are growing and our facility will be expanding in the coming months,” Provincial Fitness said in the message posted to its Facebook page.

NLESD announced last fall it was opening a public tender process to sell the school. Tenders were accepted until Oct. 23, 2014.

Provincial Fitness owner Leonard Phair was in a meeting when The Compass attempted to contact him Monday afternoon for comment. The Compass has also contacted NLESD. This story will be updated at www.cbncompass.ca as new information becomes available.
