CARROT RIVER, SASK. – The Government of Saskatchewan announced recently that construction has begun on a $28.4 million K-12 school in Carrot River, Sask.
The new school will replace and consolidate Carrot River Elementary and Carrot River High schools and will attach to the existing high school gym which was constructed as an addition to the current high school in 2005.
Construction will be led by Saskatchewan-based Wright Construction and the provincial government is contributing $25.7 million with remaining costs contributed by the community and school division.
The approximately 4,400-square-metre facility accommodates up to 400 students from kindergarten to Grade 12 and will feature “state-of-the-art classrooms and an expanded practical and applied arts area with funding from the community and the school division,” a provincial government news release stated.
The school is expected to welcome students in early 2024.
