Important Announcements: COVID-19

Eva Rothwell Centre Closure

First, on behalf of the Eva Rothwell Centre, a BIG THANK YOU to all Nurses, Doctors, Scientists and Emergency Responders in the City of Hamilton and around the World who are helping to fight the Coronavirus.

To support the side of precaution and in following the guidance of Health and Safety; due to the recent events of COVID-19, the Eva Rothwell Centre will be closing the entire Centre and all of its programs and services as of Monday, March 16 to align with the Ontario school closure. This decision helps to ensure the safety of our staff and our entire community members. We plan to re-open on April 6 but we will continue to monitor Public Health updates and re-assess the situation on a daily basis. This unprecedented decision by the Province means that we need to do our part to help "flatten the curve" of new infections and closure is the only way to do this.

Thank you in advance for your time and understanding as we all face this together.

Eva Rothwell Centre

The first City School classroom opened in October 2015 and is located on the second floor of the Eva Rothwell Centre at 460 Wentworth St North. Check out a 360 degree image of the classroom.

In fall 2017 we opened the City School Trades Lab at Eva Rothwell where we offer pre-trades and technology training! Unfortunately, due to the age of the building, the classrooms are not currently wheelchair accessible.
