  • Print

A new school will be built in the growing Waverley West neighbourhood, Premier Greg Selinger said today.

"This school will be a focal point for families in Waverley West and will help reduce class sizes for students in nearby schools, giving our children more of the attention they need," he said.

The early learning to Grade 8 school will offer education in French and English, Selinger added.

The announcement is part of the government's new budget.

It includes funds to secure the land and finalize designs for a school of up to 86,000 square feet in partnership with the Pembina Trails School Division.

The school will be built on 8.8 acres at the southeast corner of Waverley Street, located in the South Pointe area of Waverley West.

The school is for 600 students from early learning to Grade 8.

It will also house a new 114 child-care centre.

Consultation and design work will begin in May and the new school is expected to be finished in the spring of 2016, Selinger said.
