The government of Alberta has finished up construction on 11 schools.
Alberta’s Capital Plan invested $276.5 million into schools in Brooks, Calgary, Cochrane, Grande Prairie and Legal.
In Calgary the Mahogany School, Bayside School (Auburn Bay Elementary) and Lakeshore School (Auburn Bay Middle) were finished, and in Edmont Ben Calf Robe St. Clair, École À la Découverte and Windermere Keswick Catholic and Public schools were completed.
Grande Prairie concluded work on École Catholique Louis Riel (O’Brien Lake West), Legal finished École Citadelle, Brooks finished École Le Ruisseau and Cochrane Elementary/Junior High school is also done.
“Alberta’s Recovery Plan means investing in the future. We’re making life better by giving Alberta students access to the tools they need to learn, grow and succeed. On top of that, building these new schools got thousands of Albertans working again. These new schools will help ensure that Alberta remains the best place to live, work and raise a family,” provincial Minister for Infrastructure Nicholas Milliken said.
“I am pleased to see these 11 new and replacement public, separate and francophone schools opening for the 2022-23 school year. Our K-12 students will benefit from these world-class facilities for years to come,” provincial Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange added.
Planning, design or construction work will continue on 48 school projects located throughout Alberta with five of these projects expected to be completed by the end of 2022. Those five schools are the Morinville Community High School modernization in September, Paul Kane High School replacement in St. Albert in October, Father Lacombe Catholic School replacement in Lacombe in October, Prairie Sky School in Calgary, also in October, and the Blue Hills Community School modernization in Mackenzie County in December.
