Surrey school construction completed, more underway

SURREY, B.C. – An addition at Ecole K.B. Woodward in Surrey, B.C. is now complete with further school additions underway along with new child care spaces.

The B.C. government provided $14 million for the Ecole K.B. Woodward project, which adds 240 new student seats through eight new classrooms along with two more classroom renovations.

“Our government is building, expanding and upgrading schools throughout B.C. As Surrey continues to grow, we are acting to ensure all students have the classrooms they need to learn and grow in one of the best education systems in the world,” said Rachna Singh, provincial minister of education and child care.
