Coquitlam school expands for 100 more students

COQUITLAM, B.C.—Students are now able to benefit from school facility expansions at École Panorama Heights Elementary in Coquitlam.

“Engaging learning environments helps students succeed at school. That’s why the province is getting students out of portables and into classrooms designed for 21st-century learning,” said Jennifer Whiteside, minister of education, in a statement. “Bringing more capacity to growing communities like Coquitlam will ensure families have the resources they need for generations to come.”

The project adds four classrooms and will create capacity for 100 more student spaces. This addition has allowed the school to relocate three portables to other district locations.

“Increasing school capacity in a growing neighbourhood is very valuable to the community,” said Kerri Palmer Isaak, board chair for School District 43, Coquitlam. “Also, adding classroom spaces supports a strategic goal of the board of education to create and maintain innovative and sustainable facilities to meet emerging learning needs.”

The province contributed $6.2 million for the expansion project.
