Ontario has approved $26.84 million for a new elementary school and four secondary school renovation projects in Guelph and for a major elementary school addition in Orangeville. This will provide students with modern and improved places to learn while creating local construction jobs.
Local projects include:
Building new schools and modernizing learning spaces is part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths — its people and strategic partnerships.
“Our government is supporting the construction of safe, modern facilities that meet the needs of students and school staff in Wellington and Dufferin counties. When we help our local school boards improve and expand their infrastructure, we’re helping teachers and support staff focus on what matters most — student growth and success. By continuing our support for new school buildings and renovations across Ontario, we are providing our children with better places to learn.”
— Liz Sandals, Minister of Education, MPP for Guelph
“We are very pleased that the Ministry of Education is continuing to approve our plans for construction and renewal of school facilities in Upper Grand. The new school for East Guelph in 2015 will meet the enrolment needs of a growing community, as will the expansion of the Settler’s Creek school in Orangeville. Renovation projects at secondary schools in Guelph will make possible new and ambitious programs in our schools.”
– Mark Bailey, Chair of the Upper Grand District School Board
