Students in the Wellington Catholic District School Board will benefit from a new Catholic school in Rockwood. The newRockwoodCatholicElementary schoolwill have an estimated cost of $5,982,208.
This project will provide students with an improved and modern learning space to help them focus on their education while supporting the continued roll out of full-day kindergarten.
Investing in stronger schools is part of the McGuinty government’s plan to help more students succeed and secure a brighter future for all Ontarians. The government remains committed to protecting the gains made in education since 2003, including full-day kindergarten, maintaining smaller class sizes and preserving 20,000 teacher and support staff jobs.
“I’m pleased that the students in Rockwood will benefit from our investments to provide better school buildings. We know that when students are in good learning environments, they can focus on their learning.”

“We are making sure that students have safe, modern and accepting places to learn and grow, no matter where they live. Investing in our schools is critical to helping every student reach his or her full potential and succeed.”
— Laurel Broten, Minister of Education
