I love me a good senior prank.

At least I hope this is a senior prank.

Someone with a sense of humour has posted one of Calgary’s oldest high schools for sale on Kijiji.

The listing: “St.Marys highschool FOR SALE.”  was posted earlier today and it looks like quite a deal.

For $201,500 (OBO), you can get:

Fully staffed fully functional cafeteria
Brightly colored cabinets
Fully finished brand new basement with home gym
Comes with servants who like to be called teachers to boost their self esteem library
Computer rooms filled with 20+ computers each
Big gymnasium with bleachers
Grand entrance
Smart technology in every room
Television in each of the 50+rooms
Seating for thousands
Plenty of parking in secured lot
Great view of the Calgary tower
A walk away from St.Mary’s cathedral

That’s a pretty great!

So why is the school for sale?  Well “apparently” the Calgary Catholic School Board has unanimously voted to sell the school!

Makes sense to me. Heck, I’d be happy if the entire Calgary Catholic School Board was up for sale.

Clearly this is a good ol’ prank, but it’s a gooder. My only question is if the countless typos are supposed to be ironic or not.

The ad says to call Jack Hill, who is the school’s vice principal.



Apparently, St. Mary’s isn’t the only school up for sale on Kijiji!

Notre Dame High School located in the North East is also up for grabs. And while the price isn’t listed, it does come with two humans, so I would expect it to be worth quite a bit more.
