In 2015, despite efforts made by the Munster community the Ottawa Carleton District School Board decided to divert all students from Munster Elementary School and close the educational program at the building. For more information please review the Archived MES Closure Posts from MCA website
The Munster community has been able to continue to use the facility for community use and it is available for rental. For rental information please visit here.
There are a variety of groups that rent the school that offer athletic and social programming. For information on some of the programs please visit the MCA Recreation Page.
The following are programs provided free of charge and on a drop-in basis to community members.
Munster Community Playgroup
The Munster Community Playgroup is a casual drop-in program for parents and caregivers that runs out of Munster Elementary School. Sessions run throughout the school year Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. and include a combination of classroom and gymnasium playtime. During warmer weather, outdoor play may also be a component. Participants are asked to bring indoor shoes and snack.

The MCA covers the rental cost to provide free access for a winter walking club to operate in the gym and provide a safe place for residents to walk in the winter months. Look for more information in the Munster Mash Newsletters for the next session.
