BURNABY, B.C. – Construction has begun on the new Stride Avenue Community school in Burnaby, B.C.

The Government of British Columbia is putting $3 million towards building a seismically safer school with the Burnaby School District contributing an additional $4.1 million.

The school district received approximately $2.3 million in funding from ChildCareBC New Spaces to create 54 child care spaces for children 30 months to school age at Stride Avenue Community school.

The province also previously contributed $101.8 million to replace Burnaby North Secondary, one of the largest schools in the province, with space for 1,800 students, as well as an additional $2.2 million in ChildCareBC New Spaces funding to create 123 child care spaces as part of the new neigbourhood learning centre. Burnaby School District contributed an additional $11.9 million, with the City of Burnaby contributing $664,000 for the new school, which is now open.

The replacement school includes child care, a school district conference centre and a neighbourhood learning centre with space for adult education and language development programs for the surrounding community, the release said.
