New and Renovated Schools for Oakville Kids

Flynn Secures Funding for New School, Delivers Better Places to Learn

OAKVILLE – Local MPP Kevin Flynn announced Wednesday he has secured funding to build another new school in Oakville to meet population growth and ensure students have better places to learn.

This year, work will begin on a new elementary school in West Oak Trails for the Halton Catholic District School Board.

“I am pleased to have secured funding to build another new school for Oakville to help our children reach their full potential and succeed,” said Flynn. “We are helping students and strengthening Oakville and Ontario’s economy by ensuring we develop an educated workforce ready to compete for quality, high-paying jobs.”
 
This will be the eleventh school delivered by Flynn to Oakville including the long-awaited schools for Clearview and St. Thomas Aquinas.

Investing in new and revitalized schools is an important part of the government’s Open Ontario plan to strengthen and improve education. Ontario continues to invest in school renewal projects that deliver new roofs, windows and boilers to make schools cleaner, greener and better places to learn.
