Ontario Building and Renovating Schools in Oakville and Halton
Continuing to Invest in Better Places to Learn for Local Students
OAKVILLE -- Students in Oakville will benefit from a new school and two addition/renovation projects MPP Kevin Flynn announced today.
The government is continuing its strong investment in education and commitment to providing better places for students to learn and succeed, including:
• Building a permanent addition to Pilgrim Wood Public School and Forest Trail Public School
• Purchasing a new school for ÉÉP du Chêne in the Conseil Scolaire Viamonde
“I’m pleased that the students in Oakville will benefit from our investments to provide better school buildings,” said Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn. “Investments like this help ensure that Halton students continue to be ranked among the best in the province and Ontario students among the best in the world as well as providing our teachers with great teaching environments ”
These new projects will provide students with improved and modern learning spaces to help them focus on their education while supporting the continued roll out of full-day kindergarten.
Ontario is investing more than $10-million to support these projects in Oakville.
In addition, the government is building two new elementary schools for the Halton DSB and two new elementary schools for the Halton Catholic District School Board in Milton.
"The Halton Board is very pleased that the Ministry of Education has recognized and now funded the need to accommodate the enrolment growth in Halton," said David Euale, Director of Education at the Halton District School Board.
Investing in stronger schools is part of the government’s plan to help more students succeed and secure a brighter future for all Ontarians. Since 2003, the government has opened 11 new schools in Oakville.
The government remains committed to protecting the gains made in education since 2003, including full-day kindergarten, maintaining smaller class sizes and preserving 20,000 teacher and support staff jobs.
